Announcement for the ‘Blackfen post’ removal

Dear Readers,

Owing to inside information coming our way concerning some of the content in the recent article and comment section about the unhappy goings-on in Blackfen, Kent, UK, we have been advised to remove the whole article covering the subject from our blog. We apologise if this action is an annoyance to any of the excellent, well-informed Blackfen parishioners who commented on our article, or to anyone else who has an interest in the subject.

In no way do we wish to cause any problems for the fine priest, now based in Margate, Fr Tim Finigan, nor do we wish to be subject to liability accusations due to some of the content given therein said article.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding in this matter.

In Jesus and Mary,

    The faintest ink is more powerful than the strongest memory…

    The name ‘Fisher’ is a total coincidence BTW 🙂

  3. It all gets more like the Anglican Communion each and every day.

    That is an unfair comment and you should know better. We shall still be watching Southwark and, if necessary reporting our findings. In the meantime ad hominem attacks have never had a place on this blog and this was one of the reasons we decided to remove the post.

  5. Well, who can blame those who wanted to have the post removed? After all, we know that the best way to deal with a problem is:
    Deny it,
    Hide it,
    Threaten anyone who draws attention to it.

    That approach is guaranteed to make everything so much better, isn’t it?

    Though written in a different context, the words of the old Pete Seeger song come to mind:
    “When will they ever learn?
    When will…they…ever learn?”

    Mustn’t be too pessimistic, RJB – the Irish seem to have learned a bit over the past 30 years.
    Viz, CP&S’s latest post, starring the splendidly-named Ballinspittle.

    One can also fall into the enemy’s hands, he who is looking “for who to devour”.

    This was not a cowardly action (removing the post); many of us wanted some of the affirmations stated in the post to stand! However, there were other factors that had to be taken into consideration, and much to our chagrin we had to take away what could have been used as ‘a tool’ against good people.

    A brave and wise decision, Kathleen – it was a very good article – but I wholeheartedly agree. Time will vindicate you.
