Sky News are idiots - Never heard of Ash Wednesday!

This defies belief - You must have to be especially stupid to work on Sky News!

Don't panic.

UK used to be an RC missionary territory in the old days - Mary's Dowry.

Clearly the current crew are suffering from a sort of generational alzheimers.

Back to the missions. Get the old flagellators out of the dusty cupboards.

On the basis of the old black baby protocol we could help one of them for a penny and adopt one for two and sixpence.

Any takers?

Pass the bucket!

Ahem, excuse me?

Tadhg - You are of course an honourable exception to my sweeping generalisation

Correction. I should have said England. I get confused betimes.

Clip raises lots of interesting speculation.

How do they react to Indian caste marks?

Did they not notice the "hole in Bertie's head" in all those recent years of Tory misrule?

Do they not understand the role of Knock airport in the second coming?

Do they not realise that Cloughjordan is the murder weapon?

And so on.

Pig ignorant, I say.

Not so surprising, really. We're well into a post-Judeo-Christian society. A friend of mine was in conversation with a young person of some education and mentioned Noah and the flood, and the person had no clue as to what he was talking about. The cultural history is missing.
