Church Of England - May Contain Traces Of Christianity

Strike a light. Both Rasputin and the Bishop of Oxford have taken time out from the Church's 2,000 year struggle for gay marriage, women bishops, Fairtrade chocolate, apologies for the Crusades/imperialism/Iraq War/Girls Aloud/whatever - in order to argue that doctors shouldn't be able to kill their patients. Even with their consent.

I won't go into the practical reasons why again - I wrote about 'assisted suicide' and my mother's death here.

But there's a religious reason too - one which Christians, Jews and Muslims can all agree on.

"The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."
