Bishop Slaps Priests & Faithful


On Saturday 16th April Bishop Alan Hopes of Westminster will pray outside the abortuary in Twickenham (Details). This will mean that 20% of the Bishops currently living in Westminster will have prayed at an abortuary this year.

We would need 145 Priests living in Westminster to pray at the abortuary to make 20%!

But before we all pat ourselves on the back and say, "Oh those Priests!", remember that we would need 30,334 of the Mass going Catholics in Westminster to pray at an abortuary to make 20%!

I know you are busy, I know you do lots of good works, but there are over 50,000 abortions in London each year, see you on Saturday. Do remember that when you die God will not ask you "Was your Bishop/Priest/neighbour there?" He will just ask, "Where you there?" The correct answer is "Yes" or "I was at another abortuary".

See you on Saturday.

20% 0f Bishops praying at an abortuary is good but 80% would be much better.

But the point is that the Bishops of Westminster, I hope you are sitting down, are doing better than the Priests when it comes to praying at the abortuary. There may be about 5% of Priest who have prayed at one.

And the laity don't even come close to 1%.

And remember that 100% of the Bishops of nearby Brentwood pray at the abortuary each year!

Must be 50% of bouncy Welsh hobbits from Westminster?
