Quote of the Day

I've no problems with changing things – it's part of my philosophy that you've got to change and grow and develop. It's the fact that this is going backwards instead of going forwards . . . I won't be saying the priest part. If the people want to do the responses in the new translation, it's up to them.

– Father John Crothers

I betcha he'll cash his paycheck, though.

People like him don't have the guts to be real rebels. Because in their heart they know that few would follow them.
