Tuition Fees are not What Jesus Would Do.

Just a quick one folks.

I read the following today:

But Mr Clegg faced a fresh blow last night as the Bishop of Lincoln said the rise in tuition fees is ‘contrary’ to the ‘teachings of Jesus’.

The Rt Rev John Saxbee said the Bible called for sacrifice for the ‘common good’.

Seriously. What. The. Fuck.

Now I haven’t read the bible cover to cover I will admit. So there ma well be verses in there about tuition fees and Nick Clegg being the evil temptress but really. How any anyone of sound mind and judgement say that the rise in tuition fees is contrary to the teachings of Jesus? Only a moron would say that and clearly despite being a man of God – The Rt. Rev. Jon Saxbee is a moron. Now I know you can interpret things differently – that is just the way it is but using the Jesus card Bishop? Really? I know you are standing down in January but do you really want to go out on a limb on this one?

I’ve been around the church all my life and I’ve heard some absolute codswallop in my time but this might just take the biscuit.

You can disagree with what Nick Clegg and his party has done. That is fair enough. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but to use the Bible and Jesus card on this?

The Rt. Rev. John Saxbee enjoy your retirement. You are a muppet of the first degree. You are the Miss Piggy of Muppets. A boisterous attention seeking whore (oh and you aren’t very popular – nobody loves Miss Piggy – they just all wish she’d leave so Kermit could find someone worthy of his love).
