|“Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.” |
― Lao Tzu, Tao Teh Ching
As a former science teacher, I have always had mixed feelings about this particular quote from Tao Teh Chin. Pondering the troubles which have befallen Fr Ray Blake I could come to but only one conclusion: Someone, somewhere — it may, of course, be a lot of people a lot of wheres — wants to shut him up; to undermine him; to subvert all the good work he is doing, firstly in Brighton, and, secondly, in his Blog. And it isn’t Bill Gardner.
No. Brighton and Hove Argus’s disreputable scumbag doesn’t have the brains to produce an attack like this. Somebody put him up to it.
As a Catholic, I have always been confident that a son of the Church, particularly when that son is a priest in good standing, faces being unjustly, unfairly traduced in the public square, then he can be confident of the full support of the leader of the local Church.
Apparently this is NOT the case in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighten where Bishop Kieran Conry is deafeningly silent.
