Fr Ray in t' papers

Good Father Ray Blake has been in the papers recently. First of all he made mention of the "hedonistic gay lobby" which resulted in coverage in the Brighton Argus. His response Anger in the Lobby is well worth reading for an insight into the work of a compassionate and pastoral priest in Brighton.

Laurence "Bones" England has an account of this in which he has a photo of the local paper's bill for that day. (Do read Fr Ray's actual post before jumping to conclusions.)

I did enjoy one of Laurence's suggestions for a future billboard:
