Scintillatingly Rev and non-female Philip North, Bishop of Burnley and not Bishop of Sheffield

We’re all recovering from the excitement of the women’s football final. Which brings me to Christianity, which invented women’s football. We, and by we I mean us, won because we sang the magnificat at the Lambeth conference. I can’t think of anyone better qualified to lecture you on oppressed people’s rights than me and the Church of England.

The BBC has exposed the abuse of disabled people in Ukraine.

This is a religious problem. My Big Book of Magic Stuff is unequivocal in saying that all people, no matter what their disability, are equal. (Except “No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; no man with a crippled foot or hand, or who is a hunchback or a dwarf, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. But apart from them, absolutely everybody.)
