Jesus versus Rev Peter Mullen


And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,

 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Source Matthew, chapter 21, verses 12 and 13.

The Reverend Peter Mullen,  Rector St Michael, Cornhill, St Sephulcre-Without-Newgate and Anglican chaplain to the London Stock Exchange

The Bishop of London has said that it is time for the protesters outside St Paul’s to move on. He is surely right to demand this. The presence of this rabble is losing that famous capitalist enterprise, the cathedral, £22,500 each day in income because its closure means it cannot charge each visitor £14.50 apiece entrance fee. 

No entrepreneurial enterprise such as St Paul’s can afford to lose money at that rate for very long. And rich capitalists in the City and beyond are reconsidering their willingness to continue to contribute financially to a cathedral governed so badly.

A capitalist enterprise, such as St Paul’s, which depends so profoundly on the support of capitalist entrepreneurs, can hardly afford to alienate these, its best friends.

A Famous capitalist enterprise? Well sadly so. St Paul's Cathedral receives a stack of money from the city and most of its board of trustees are businessmen. Even so I find Mullen's take quite revolting. It sounds like the proles should bend their heads in prayer and shut the fuck up when the rich screw them further....

Then again this is the same caring christian who a few years ago "jokingly" suggested that all gays should be tattooed with warnings, Clearly the man is a bigoted piece of shit
