Women: aren’t they just great. If you look at the Big Book of Magic Stuff properly, you’ll find it’s just full of women, and they’re great too.

Some of the best people I’ve ever known have been women.

Jesus, being the visible third of the Invisible Magic Friend, wasn’t an alpha male, and so was nearly a woman. He was great too, wasn’t he.

Preposterously Reverend Lord Professor Bishop Baron Lord Richard Harries, Baron Pentregarth, Gresham Professor of Divinity, Baron, Bishop, Professor, Lord…

And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, we all need hope to look forward to after the Invisible Magic Friend’s Holy Virus. And who better to provide that hope than the Invisible Magic Friend himself. Here is some poetry…

Queen Nanny of the Jamaican Maroons defeated the British because she was so very spiritual.

The British, being Christians, were also spiritual, but not spiritual enough to defeat Queen Nanny. Queen Nanny was from some heathen, African, wrong sort of spirituality. But still, she was nearly as spiritual as a woman from the Old Tasty Mint, which makes her a sort of honorary pre-Christian, and therefore very spiritual indeed.

Eventually the not-quite-spiritual-enough British signed a treaty with Nanny. In return for her independence, she agreed to capture any other runaway slaves. All very spiritually of course.
