The Bishop of Lichfield, Jonathan Gledhill, is a man with the right priorities, using his New Year message to condemn those evil democratically elected Western Governments.
It's so good that the church is giving the powerless a voice and saying the things that others won't say. After all, hardly anyone else is concerned about torture.
There's another Gledhill out there, one Ruth, Times Religious Affairs correspondent and apparently a believer in the theory that the Church Of England has been hijacked by Bible-bashing fundamentalists away from its historic mission - the 2000-year struggle for gay rights, traffic calming measures, universal childcare free at the point of use and needle exchanges.
Could they by any chance be related ?
