Wasting their time, not preaching the word

'More than 200 people have attended the funeral and burial in north Kent of an unknown teenage girl who was decapitated about 700 years ago.

Her remains were found by an archaeologist on unconsecrated ground next to Hoo St Werburgh Parish Church, near Rochester.

Her head had been placed by her side, suggesting she may have committed suicide or been executed for a crime.'

Is it just me, or is this exactly the kind of thing the Church of England does now?

Why aren't they out there in the rough pubs and the streets and towns of England spreading the word of God about Jesus Christ?

That brought to mind this quote from a famous JFK speech at Rice University:

'We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not only because they are easy, but because they are hard...'

The Church of England chooses to re-bury 700 year old criminals not because it is hard, but because it is easy. Nobody in todays 'whatever you want to do we're cool with that' society is going to critisize this moronic activity. Nobody knows why this girl was beheaded and stuck outside the consecrated ground, but it probably wasn't for doing the washing up badly. Taking an evil person into consecrated ground is higher up the agenda for these idiots than actually doing the basic function of every Christian church- to teach society about Jesus.

How very sad.
