A Pope, an Archbishop & a Moderator Walk into a Bar

The spectacle of the leaders of the Churches of England, Rome and Scotland all nipping off to South Sudan for a joint ‘pilgrimage’ I found rather curious. The Pope wore white like an angel of light, the Archbishop donned purple like a Babylonian priestess, while the Kirk Moderator was resplendant in the dark blue of an apocalyptic locust's breastplate.

All three of them make excellent bed fellows. The Pope adds to God’s word, the liberal Moderator subtracts from it, and the muddled Anglican Archbishop doesn’t know his butt from his elbow. I imagine they got on like a house on fire. What a shame they had to return.
