Bad attitude, Low performance

After all this anxiety about good and bad vicars, it’s vaguely reassuring to find evidence that other professionals experience low self image and react sarcastically to the public, too.

The more I research this kind of thing the simpler the questions seem to get. It's rather like a blood test where you get a list of numerical spectra: eg sugar should be in the range 3...6, if memory serves. With churches and the perceived clergy performance as a central parameter one can usually fairly easily perceive where the church seems to be on various spectra in very rule-of-thumb terms. Eg classically today: ideology...(socio-)biology. Though one of the most telling is the very simple: scratch...hug. In any church one can usually soon see whether one is typically closer to a scratch or a hug.

Good to see you quoted in the Times today, Alan. And by such a well-known/respected journalist. They say as long as there're talking about you...

Thanks, Noel. Shame he hadn't read the report he was criticising, though. Maybe famous journos don't have to read the stuff they criticise — heir responses just flow like, er, like something that flows automatically out of an orifice ...
