Any Chance Of A New Ipad Mr God?

The Church of England has suspended a senior member of staff in its Media Centre, after they published the results of a survey commissioned by the Church itself, showing that many still believe in the power of prayer.  However, the staff member released the findings before church leaders had the chance to put some much needed ecclesiastical spin on the data. 

In the un-censored report, figures showed that whilst a staggering 85% of the population admitted resorting to prayer, the breakdown of reasons for praying was less welcome, with 43% of those surveyed praying for a lottery win, 22% for a painful death for their boss and 11% for a parking space.

Adding further to the Church’s blushes, another 12% cited seeking help in 'Getting off' with someone they fancied, 11% for the presenters of ITV’s ‘Loose Women’ to be wiped out by an asteroid strike and 1% for a Tory victory in the next election.

The Survey Overshadowed The Launch Of  A New Range Of Vestments For The Clergy, Intended To Project An Image That 'Better Reflects The Seriousness Of The Anglican Mission And Its Belief's'  According To Designer Stella McCartney.

    I pray for the end of religion. How's that for cognitive dissonance?

    By the way, are you using a different coloured font for links, etc? I ask because I don't see the links, just a blank space in your writing until I hover the mouse over the blank.
    And the mouse is starting to complain; he says he was born to scurry, and if I want him to hover I'd better get him a helicopter.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out Mr S! Changed it to a nice shade of pink! That said, if it still doesn't show up, please let me know. The old one appeared quite normal at this end, but clearly not for others. BTW do you think Mo Ansar might promote this site? Don't see why not, do you? ....and that also reminds me, high time I reported on some more 'middle Eastern' beleif systems, just in the interests of balance you understand!

    That's much better, Nigel; my acrophobic mouse thanks you. The colour you were using blended to well with the blue background.
    Re. Ansar and M/E beliefs, you could do worse than start in on their dress code (I hope that html code works here).
