In September 2006 I wrote a spoof piece about a priest going over to the dark side. Read it here.
I feel, once again, the need to offer my resignation as a satirist due to unfair competition from real life.
The Rev Chris Horseman, so it is reported in the Nailsea and Clevedon Mercury (so it must be true), is training as a witch. A white one, before you get too worried. There is a picture of him looking over his spectacles, long white hair flowing behind him whilst reading a book on spells. He is a non-stipendiary minister (not paid by the church) who is a full-time carer for a wife with MS and earns his living as a rent-a-rev (weddings and funerals) but is branching out.
I predict cosy fire-side chats with a bishop.
