Resignation of the Dean of St Paul’s

Yesterday I heard the sad news that the second senior cleric at St Paul’s had resigned. The Dean of St Paul’s the Rt Rev Graeme Knowles had resigned.

No one has called upon these senior clerics, certainly not those camped outside.

The good news today is that St Paul’s has suspended legal action against those camped outside.

Front page of The Times today has a claim that St Paul’s in-the-Camp is a site of drink and drugs, that the people there do not know why they are there and that they are high on drink and drugs. This it is claimed was the situation Saturday. Simply not true, but then does anyone expect the truth from corporate mainstream media, especially when owned and controlled by the Murdoch Empire?

Pandora and I were there Saturday afternoon and evening. People there were very articulate, polite, helpful and well informed. There was a wonderful atmosphere and it was not fueled by drink or drugs.

The atmosphere was in part due to the Christian spirit.

Yipee! City of London also suspends legal action!

Contrary to the nonsense in the Evening Standard, there are no ringleaders.

    These clergy resignations following the camper demonstration outside St. Paul’s cathedrel certainly say something about the commitment the senior clerics have to the Church of England and Christianity in England. In my view they should have stood their ground and kept the Cathedrel open. Is it any wonder that many people think “Oh well, it’s their religion so let them get on with it.

    Yes, they should have kept St Paul’s open. The best that can be said is that they were ill-advised. It never was St Paul’s v the camp as the mainstream media tried to portray, and since dropping, or at least suspending, the legal action the clergy have been working closely with the camp.

    The camp was not meant to be outside St Paul’s but God moves in mysterious ways. A lot of good has come out of it being where it is.
