Went out for a Sunday Newspaper tonight and bought the one with the frontpage article about the Scottish Cardinal who has been accused of inappropriate behaviour towards priests stretching back 30 years or so. The Observer it’s called. Unbiased honest reporting with heart.
Big mitre, nice smile, firm lips and seemingly about to vote in the next Vatican elections despite the accusations.
I asked the check out man the usual “how is your day” stuff since I like to enhance the checkout experience and am committed to lightening up the day for those in crap occupations.
Without any hesitation he commented on my choice of newspaper.
“Isn’t that Cardinal O’Brien” he said “the man that Stonewall voted Bigot of the Year in 2012?”
