A prominent bishop has provoked a storm of outrage by likening Prince William and Kate Middleton to ‘shallow celebrities’ and predicting their marriage will last just seven years.That's the way to bring people back to the Church of England, Peter...
On his Facebook page, Church of England Bishop Pete Broadbent describes the Royal Family as ‘philanderers’ with a record of marriage break-ups who ‘cost an arm and a leg’.
He also denounces the ‘nauseating tosh’ surrounding the ‘national flimflam’ of the wedding and says the basis of the Monarchy is ‘corrupt and sexist’.
When approached at his home by The Mail on Sunday yesterday, Bishop Broadbent said: ‘I’m not speaking to you. I really am not speaking to you. If you want to run a gutter story, run a gutter story. Bye.’Yeah, it's a bit late for a dignified silence now, isn't it?
