Priest chastises fellow clerics
AN ANGLICAN priest is knocking fellow clerics for engaging in pillow talk with politicians.
Commenting on an opinion expressed by a talk show host on the “demise” of the Anglican Church, rector of St Matthias Anglican Church Canon DeVere Murrell said the comment should have been about the demise of the Christian church.
“We are in danger of losing our identity as leaders of this country. Too many of our priests, too many of our pastors, too many of the ministers of our churches have got into bed with the politicians and those who do not have the best interest of this country and us at heart,” Murrell said to applause from members of the congregation.
He was speaking yesterday at a service to mark the 30th anniversary of the 184th intake of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) of 1984. Murrell centred his sermon on Matthew 5:13-20 and the importance that has always been attached to salt.
