Many people around the world are turned off by the "imperial" model of hierarchy in the world's religions. This model stands with the rich and powerful, instead of the poor and suffering. The bishops under the "imperial" model of Church work to preserve the status quo, which favors the rich. Not all bishops are this way but the few who are brave and not afraid to say what is happening to society as a result of the rich benefiting off the backs of the poor and middle class, are usually silenced or shipped off to some obscure place where they will not be heard. The chickens are coming home to roost. The price the wealthy are going to have to pay for their major role in the debacle we face around the globe, is going to be hefty! Let the shake down begin.

“He runs the cathedral like an army operation and sees the canons as his troops who should follow orders and not speak out of turn,” says one insider."

Well, thanks to The Telegraph, the world now knows that the power behind the Chapter's throne at St. Paul's is the very sad model of a modern Major General.

He would've driven the whole chapter out with a whip of cords.

Or, maybe He would have just pointed to his actions at the temple and told the people of England, "Go thou and do likewise."
