CHURCH of England bishops have been accused of meddling in how humans interact.
The bishops were attacked after publishing a letter setting out why they felt society was not very good and how it might be improved so that everything was slightly less unpleasant.
But Tory MP Denys Finch-Hatton said it was a betrayal of the bishops’ traditional role of trying to send messages to God via the sharp point at the top of their hats.
He added: “Bishops should sit in darkened rooms, chanting gibberish and rubbing their hands together.
“They should only be allowed out on Sundays so they can stand in a pulpit and say nice things about Princess Anne.”
Finch-Hatton has demanded an inquiry into how the Church of England became ‘infested’ with people who think Jesus sets a good example.
Norman Steele, the Bishop of Stevenage, said: “If Jesus was around today, I’m pretty sure he would have opinions about stuff.
“And I have degree in theology, so shut it.”
