image for Bishops Urged To "Repent And Be Changed"
Bashing the Bishop

Church of England Bishops have been urged to repent and be changed. Peter Twatchell, human rights campaigner, said "The Bishops live a life which goes against the norm of society. They spend their time reading texts whose origins are dubious and fail to stay in touch with life in general."

Reverend Nasim-ul-Ghani said "I'm not going to repent. I like wandering around in a purple dress pontificating and branding people sinners. There is absolutely no way I am going to change."

The Church of England Bishops are a minority group who are known to have militant members. They support the compulsory wearing of purple, wearing silly pointed hats on special occasions and the serving of semolina every Thursday. Reverend Alan Butcher, a member of the Holy Synod, said "We are just fighting for the right to be different."

Twatchell was unrepentant and there is a fear that 'Bish Bashing' might become a popular pastime.
