Bishop criticises Dean of Southwark for holding a memorial service for the cathedral’s cat — 8 Comments

  1. The Bishop’s opinion seems indicative of political correctness run amuck, a common epidemic these days. Surely thirty people would have no trouble with social distancing in a cathedral of all places. I’m unfamiliar with the Anglican hierarchy, but Mr. North looks remarkably young to have advanced so far as to having been promoted to being made a Bishop. Is he remarkably capable and wise? His opinion of the cat’s funeral would seem to belie it. Or is he a case in point of the principle in most hierarchies throughout the world that who you know is more important than what you know?

  2. Wonderful tribute for “Doorkins Magnificat”. When I am next in London I will now visit the Cathedral, something I would proberly not have done without hearing about Doorkins, Loverly story

  3. What a sweet, touching story. I side with the Dean. The Bishop should just go dust off his hidden trinkets and leave the real work to the parish. Hopefully, another cat will find its way to the Bishop’s door. Fitting tribute.
