Equality Training for Bishops?

Leaving aside the Hapless Rowan story for a moment, let us just give thanks that John Reaney’s legal case has come to its conclusion. He has been awarded £47000 for the discrimination that he suffered.

There has been little sign of remorse from the cleric in question, the Bishop of Hereford, who was given Stonewall’s Bigot of the Year award last year for his actions.

The tribunal ruling contains the following suggestion that “staff [in the diocese of Hereford] involved in recruitment should receive equal opportunities training”.

All this is reported in the Times with the following headline, which is ever so slightly too good to be true:
Bishop ordered to have equality training over gay discrimination


  1. Andrew CJ says

    Just wondering who will be paying that sum; the Bishop himself or the Church?

    And when I say the Church, that should read the ‘person in the pew’… If so, will they then say say that folks over there should be increasing their givings? Oh, dear!
