  3. Nah… he was done for loitering by the look of him… But it seems he surendered peacably!

  4. It’s just some bloke stopping a bus…

    • We feel very safe taking-the-micky out of Christ the King. Christians are very tolerant and forgiving, but try doing about “The Prophet”(peace be upon him) and see what happens.

        Muslims never threw my son out of a so-called state school.

      • I’ve never understood that argument, lardi. I’m not sure whether you are saying you would like to see Christians crack down on anyone “taking the mickey”; or whether you think that being “very tolerant and forgiving” is a good thing, so you don’t want the crack down. You can’t have it both ways.

        I think there is something about not worshipping graven images, so I don’t imagine I’m being rude about a deity when I joke about part of a wooden statue in a photo.

        I feel a little uneasy at the proximity of a potentially upsetting situation regarding the arrested person, when some of us are joking around. But we haven’t been referring to that at all, it’s been kept separate.

          In such a small debate about the arrest of a middle aged man in a School for abusing a position of trust, it’s a little difficult to see how the joke about the School Crest can be seen to be separate from the alleged offence, don’t you agree? With the benefit of hindsight, I think the comments would have been better omitted.

          • I think it’s debatable, (as we see), PW. There is a small reference to an arrest and an unspecified offence. In the absence of any further substance, some of us have turned our attention to something else – a photo.

    Before someone complains about the above comments, a reminder that blasphemy is a victimless crime..

    So Sally, is it now acceptable to publish such bad taste flippant comments about a middle aged man arrested in a School for abusing a position of trust?

  7. When I was at school they reckoned he was a carpenter, King now heh? He’s done well for himself

      Well, well, Bystander has progressed from a paranoia about Mason’s to belittling the son of God all in a few weeks. I guess there really is no end to to the depths that some mouthpieces will go. Having stumbled across the same pseudonym on Twitter and seen the same bigoted ramblings on many topics. Even sadder is that contributors on here seem fit to award kudos to such crass comments

        I would not want to comment on the facts of the man being arrested for “abusing a position of trust” because I do not know the facts and he may be innocent. Anyway when I suggested a link between Church education and a characteristic form of unnatural vice (which the General Synod of the Church of England recently fessed up to)I was surprised to get the OTW Inquisition.
        Surprised – & fearful, and had to sit in a comfy chair.

      • Is this the same Son of God who told everyone in the Sermon on the Mount to be meek and peacemakers who cursed and killed an innocent fig tree because it was out of season for fruit then proceeded to assault money changers in the Temple without so much as an excuse me? Should the Son of God be having temper tantrums?

    Drat this new fangled pesky technology.

    I said…

    • Well done for finding an economical way of annoying readers twice over! But you put us in the quandary of whether to vote on both posts, and is it legitimate to vote For one, Against on the duplicate? And would you need 2 comfy chairs?

  9. Why are you people talking about Muslims never bieng thrown out of school. 1 this was a man. 2 why bother comparing this school with another. This incident won’t happen again so yeah…

    Who was talking about Muslims never being thrown out of school?
    I think you are being optimistic to imagine that similar incidents will not re-occur.

    Looks like he was done for loitering with intent, has been here far too long:-)

    I bet he’d like to put his arms [Limbs] down!

  12. I see in the CP that the man has gone free, and no action is being taken by the Police.
