His Grace's 'appearance' on BBC Question Time


Blogger John M Ward said...

Woo. Fame on national TV! I'm envious – but in only a mild and non-sinful, appreciative manner!

Did I dare to hope? I was hoping to see a glimpse of the visage of the modern incarnation of the elusive Archbishop Cranmer. Alas, I was disappointed. Perhaps this should be actionable under law. I would think it could be successfully argued that our estimable host made a binding contract with that headline.

I once got through to a Sunday Morning beeb political show, over our right to bear arms and assist the police with hue and cry

They put my views to a copper on the programme who agreed

Happy days YG

It'll take a ordinal hint to work out Cranmer's identity.

Your Grace

Would have much more enjoyed a full post the day after, that detailed how you would have responded to each question from the audience, had you been there in 'persona'.

There isn't a lot that can be stated using the limitation of characters in a twitter!

In this case, less is NOT more!!

E S Blofeld


See Man-Boy Owen Jones was like a frenzied dressmaker let loose in a sweat shop, with an easy over-fabrication of the reality between Israel and Palestinians.

It appears whether he agrees with someone or not, they merit being continually talked over, even after he has had his full allocation of time to speak. His Fabian outlook of via media is trying to persuade (bully) others to go along with his own balanced (How could anyone think otherwise?)and unbiased preferences (You are all just bigots that need my view on all things that pertain to my common good) and God help you if you don't..

It seemed the BBC were able to create the perfect example of verbal and visual gross stupidity?

144 left wing sphincters in the one room. (You can never find your gun when you want it)

What's the difference between a woman with PMS and a left wing man-child firebrand? Lipstick and a part usable brain.

A perfect example of the saying that children should be seen but not heard!

Israels right to defend itself seems to come with the Friends of Israels right to disarm the English, in contradiction with an Englishmans rights, this is quite absurd

English law does not allow for absurdity, I maintain zionism in English politics requires closer scrutiny

Congratulations. Up there with the mighty likes of Benjamin Zephaniah, Will Young and Jarvis Cocker ;)

Yvette Cooper: "Parliament will have to work with the Church". That woman is a stone-cold politburo robot. That, i'm sad to say, is the most gentle thing i can say about her.

Congrats YG your fame is spreading.

Politicians and their attitude towards the Church (which they desire to control as 'part of the State') illustrate why Church and State must separate.

Once the Ekklesia(originally 'called out believers' became) 'the Church'they became an Institution under the control of the State.
Followers of Jesus Christ must be free to preach the Word of God unhindered by 'the fear of men', Political Correctness(which rarely is correct)or interference from Politicians pursuing their own agendas.

Weeeelll.. Your Grace.

I do think it's sad that non-corporeals can't speak. Otherwise, you could have shown those females up for what they are :)

So, according to the female speaking from the audience, being a vicar or bishop in the CofE is a "career".

Says it all about what has happened to the established church, and where it has lost its way..

Beside, the language you are using around women is unbecoming, I do hope it is not my influence upon YG that brought his tone down

In my experiencing preaching is something a lady does after finishing school has taught her to ride a bike

Dimbleby says "...rather curiously called Archbishop Cranmer", pah, clearly totally entrenched and absorbed in the BBC media bubble.

I pray forgiveness if I dragged His Grace down into the gutter

Promising to firmly display my manhood, at all times, in the presence of the ladies with all future correspondance

Congratulations, Your Grace. May this be followed by many other invitations to bring balance and sound judgement to contentious issues.

What a horrible example of free-will this question and answer session is. I cannot tell the elect from not. And irresistible grace seems rather resisted, in your state of affairs. Is not man at least a bit curious; as to God's position in all of this? It is simple really... choose God.

Kol ha kavod, Your Grace!

I see that our Carl Jacobs of the litigation-obsessed USA believes you made an actionable contractual statement about giving us a glimpse of your current visage. Don't hold it against him, YG, it's in the Yankee blood; upon attaining age of majority ...which I believe is 45 in most US states... Americans routinely sue their mothers for providing poor quality breast milk in insufficient quantities and under schedules which violate established ISO management standards.
