I saw Cardinal O'Brien on the BBC news (where else?) joining in the calls for "modernising" the Church. it reminded me of an episode of "Fawlty Towers".
Can we get you on Mastermind, Cardinal O'Brien?
Next contestant Cardinal O'Brien from Edinburgh; chosen subject - the bleedin' obvious.
Cardinal O'Brien thinks that because priests find celibacy difficult, we should abolish it.
Actually, many married people find marriage difficult. Does that mean that we should abolish it?
It is possible to find friendship difficult. Should we make it optional?
Learning a foreign language. Very difficult. Let's not bother.
Of course celibacy is not always easy. It never was. How is this new or news?
You can watch part of the interview with STV here. If you get the advert before the video, the character in the blue costume with the big yellow feet is not the Cardinal. he comes later!
