DAILYKENN.com -- "I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some," wrote the Apostle Paul.
The Bishop of London may be taking that advice too far. He's encouraging priests to grow beards to impress Muslims.
That begs the question: Who's converting who?
The ongoing Islamic invasion of Europe has proven one thing: Few Muslims are willing to assimilate. Rather, they expect the people of their conquered nations to assimilate to their idiocy.
It seems they found an idiot in at least one clergyman, Rt Reverend Richard Chartres
Clergymen should grow beards to emphasise their holiness to Muslims, the Bishop of London has suggested. Rt Reverend Richard Chartres said the modern fashion for facial hair should not be the preserve of hispters, but would also be likely to impress those from Eastern cultures where wearing a beard could mark a man out as holy.
He singled out two priests in Tower Hamlets - the Rev. Adam Atkinson, Vicar of St Peter's church in Bethnal Green, and Rev. Cris Rogers of All Hallows Bow - who have grown bushy beards.
Writing in the Church Times, Rev. Chartres, who himself sports a 'modest' beard, said: 'The discovery that two of the most energetic priests in east London had recently grown beards of an opulence that would not have disgraced a Victorian sage prompted me to look again at the barbate debate throughout Church history.'
