Don't fancy him as a neighbour? Sue!

Church experts reckon a legal ruling has paved the way for vicars and ministers to sue their boss.

Methodist minister Haley Moore, of Redruth, Cornwall, challenged a 27-year-old Court of Appeal ruling that prevented church members from making a case for unfair dismissal because they were "office holders" rather than employees.

She won the case as the Employment Appeals Tribunal ruled that she was an emloyee under the Employment Rights Act.

Our Religious Affairs correspondent, Arundel Dogcollar, said: "This is a landmark ruling and opens up a whole realm of possibilities. What's to stop a disgruntled priest going all the way to the top?

"Reverend or Father or Rabbi Joe Bloggs pops his clogs and finds himself in the "Other Place" rather than addressing St Peter at the Pearlies.

"He doesn't fancy spending all eternity serving the Evil One and all his minions, so what does he do?

"Sue God, of course! Can you imagine - all those dodgy priests and Popes down the years?

"That court would be sitting for longer than eternity!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
