Does he really believe this rubbish?

I am delighted the Holy Father is opening the doors of the Church to Anglicans who can accept the precepts of the Catholic Faith. It is a generous ecumenical gesture.

Matthew Parris who sounds more deranged by the week has a hissy fit:

Were I an Anglican I would feel spiritually uncomfortable with anyone who passionately believed that God hated the idea of women priests; and the more reactionaries Pope Benedict can gather around himself and his Church, the faster the whole thing will sink under the weight of its own weirdness.

Sounds like he's worried that it won't sink to me.

Matthew Parris, and indeed the Times in general is coming across as more and more anti-catholic. My colleague who reads both daily, says that it is now indistinguishable from the Guardian.

Yes, indeed!

"Oh, Matthew, dear! Is the ship not sinking fast enough for your taste?"

You can weigh weirdness?

What are the SI units for it, I wonder?

Matthew Parris is going through an anti-Catholic phase even as he admits that he has been impressed by some of the Catholic communities' work that he has reported on. Unfortunately, his lifestyle is challenged by Catholic teaching, so he clings to his atheism.
