Good stuff, the communist or Nazi comment is quite complex but the uppity Anglican who owns the dean is pushed into a sulk! :)

    The Dean provides an important non-aligned independent voice and spiritual insight within the States Chamber, the Dean make no claims to direct representation, his office seeks to be a voice for all people of faith, not just Christians.

Stop skirting around the issue, and ask the Dean for an interview VFC...

    Good idea Anony @ 20:16

    VFC If you decide to invite the Dean for an interview would you please add these to your list of questions from a person that has not seen a wage increase increase a very long time.

    a. Who paid for the rebuilding of the town church organ costing £250,000 ?

    b. The position of Dean as acknowledged head of the CoE in Jersey, is a recipient state benefits, can he please explain how he is a non-aligned independent voice, as Anony @ 20.16 and probably others claim ?

    c. Do the mature members of Government need lectures on spiritual insight, does the Dean feel that if this is the case they should attend their own churches ?

    d. For what reason was the Dean sent to Maderia after the HG problem. Did the tax payers fund the trip, and if so what was the purpose, obviously not politics as he is not elected.

    e. Dr Gavin Ashenden speaking on BBC Jersey to Matthew Price was asked how much money annually Jersey contributes to the diocese off island, he replied in the region of £800,000 as the Dean is head of the CoE what is the exact amount and could he also supply the amount figure the parishes pay for the upkeep of the churches and other staff expenses.

    f. Is the Dean comfortable living in a mansion and receiving a wage that would help purchase food for Jersey's active food bank charity, does he know Gerry Padden ?

    Gerry Padden, from the Grace Trust, said: "We're quite a wealthy island and we have people who are struggling to make ends meet.


  2. Who's this person who owns the Dean?
    'Our Dean' ? 
  3. Jesus ..... a Communist or a Nazi?
    Well there is a little bit for everybody in the "good book" (inc. current editions) but on balance Jesus cannot be accurately described as either Communist or a Nazi.

    Of the two, the bible describes him as far closer to a Communist who was tortured to death by occupying and occupied Nazi regimes. I think it fair to describe him as a deep pink socialist, at the very least.

    After a few decades Christianity was adopted by the (Nazi) regime of Rome and spread thought the empire and a millennia later across much of the world by conquistadors and missionaries and regularly enforced with an iron hand and a sharp blade.
    In more recent times there have been wholesale theft of children from tribal communities so that their children can be "saved", and all too regularly abused and serial raped. Even in [civilised' countries like Canada!!!

    So the Jersey Dean is hardly anything new. Just the local incarnation of the theo-political animal coming in political shades from deep blue to black.

    The christian message is lost to a PR soundbite as cover for the most unchristian behaviours.

    If there is a god, perhaps this is her way of trapping the morally and intellectually weak and the easily led?

    Well, isn't life a bitch? LOL

    I am a right leaning liberal but socialism is nothing to be ashamed of. "Socialism" gives us things such as universal education (yes, even for poor children), Pensions for old people (yes, including those who made little or no SS contributions; which came into existence later) And medical treatment for ill people like Kristina Moore (or did she go 100% private .....within a "socialist" funded hospital)

    So people like the persistent commenter on this thread who seek to use the word "socialist" (or even liberal?) as an insult, are either ........

    .....rather stupid
    .....rather fascist

    This is shocking, but not uncommon as some of the extremes of conservatism, religious-conservatism and neo-conservatism are well into fascist territory.

    1. If the point of this comment is to make you look clever, you failed...
    2. I am sure he is brokenhearted at that response.
