First they change the Lord's Prayer to take out thee and thou; then they drop my favourite hymn. Now they're mucking with the date of Easter. The ABC raises the ire of some conservatives. Bishop of Cork is taking heat for marrying a Spice Girl. ("To marry" here is not a reflexive verb). Paul Handley writes about gold fillings in teeth, but fails to notice missing photos on CT web site. Diocese of Olympia appoints a native of South Africa as its cathedral dean. New Fairy Meadow Anglican Church in NSW; David Virtue is jetting down right away to make sure it's the right kind of fairy. The Church of England has released a report on integrating sex offenders back into society, and the British press has erupted in flames.

Organist at St Edmundsbury Cathedral was not involved in killing animals for sport. The new CEO of the Mother's Union has been wearing men's clothing to work. All this and more in the News Centre.
