An update: The 6th pillar of Islam - Vicar Bashing

Survey of London clergy finds that nearly half have been attacked.

Last night we talked about the cowardly attack on the vicar of St. George-in-the-East church in Wapping, East London. I was shocked to read this statistic in a related article.

A survey of London clergy by National Churchwatch, which provides personal safety advice, found that nearly half said they had been attacked in the previous 12 months. The organisation suggested that vicars should consider taking off their dog collars when they are on their own.
