I heard it too - and the person quoting the Bible bits sounded really shocked!

Steve Tomkins was good. The Muslim man who commented seemed to do it politely, disagreeing about the Bible compared to the Koran.

BBC4 seemed to link Ship of Fools with Greenbelt...

He's obviously a lurker (Hi, +Kirk!) -- one of these days we'll get him to a Shipmeet!

CHURCH TIMES

St Paul wins ‘worst’ vote

by Ed Beavan

A ST PAUL “classic” has been voted the “worst verse in the Bible” in a poll by the irreverent Christian website Ship of Fools.

The winning verse, 1 Timothy 2.12, in which St Paul does not “permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man”, was unveiled as the most unpopular Bible text in the survey at the Greenbelt Festival on Monday.

The second most disliked text was 1 Samuel 15.3, in which God orders the destruction of the family of Amalek, while Exodus 22.18 was voted third-worst: Moses says: “Do not allow a sorceress to live.”

Two other verses from Paul also appear in the top ten: one where he condemns homosexuality in Romans 1, and one in Ephesians 5 where he calls on wives to “submit to their hus bands as to the Lord”. St Peter also gets in, with a verse appearing to condone slavery, 1 Peter 2.

Stephen Goddard, co-editor of Ship of Fools, said he believed that the “winning” verse was chosen because it was still “live” today. “It’s still used to ‘shut women up’ and stop them preaching.”

In todays Guardian, Simon Hoggart, my favourite columnist, refers to the Ship, suggesting it is 'for sceptical Christians' He comments on the Mystery Worshipper: 'They run a good sermon guide which can be every bit as rude as some restaurant critics', and seems to be a regular.
He is not impressed at the poll on unfavourite Bible verses, suggesting that 'either you believe this nonsense is ordained by an all powerful God or you don't' and can not pick and choose which verses we accept and which we don't.

Potential MW's in that diocese "will need to have the recommendation of their incumbent".
Hmmm... doesn't that rather defeat the object of MW-ing?

I'm rather pleased by the tone of this, as the bishop appears to assume that readers know about Ship of Fools!

It's a stupid thing - their operation of MWing, that is. Why couldn't they liaise with the Ship - I'm sure people already experienced in MWing could have been asked to discreetly get to work! Maybe the Ship could even have charged for the service! Sounds like an inside type job to me, even a cover-up by the grand old CofE.

Um, I don't think that the potential MWer would be MWing their own church. I believe the diocese would like to have a reference so that they know who is signing up for the job of MWing diocese churches. It sounds reasonable to me.

Take the point that they wouldn't be MW-ing their own church, sure, Lyda Rose, but I still don't understand why there needs to be a "recommendation". Sounds like weeding out the urestful souls to me. And what will the would-be MW do if turned down as a result of the reference? Confront the incumbent?

It's because I am reading things like Challis's blog, LaShawn's blog...James White's blog and I am always present on the ship, so my energy must have made this connect.

Ship of Fools gets a shout-out in a column by Danny Westneat in the Seattle Times.

The main focus of the story is a Craigslist ad for paid church reviewers, linked to a site called ChurchRater.com.

The SoF quote is near the end:
quote:
[T]here are other church-rating sites (the most popular is Ship of Fools, the British "magazine of Christian unrest," with its cheeky reports by anonymous "mystery worshippers.")

Having just turned on the radio earlier this morning, still half asleep, I found myself listening to the Apps of the Apostles. The Ancient Mariner came across very well, I thought.

(I can also tell you that the Biblical Alarm Clock didn't have much success at getting me out of my somnolent state.)

19th February copy of Church Times has a two-page spread by Cap'n Simon on 'The Apps of the Apostles'.

But it doesn't seem to be in their on-line version.

The Ship got a website link as well!

Does the Church Times count as what?

It's '..registered as a newspaper at the Post Office' according to the small print at the back - and a newspaper is certainly part of the 'media'.

And it has been mentioned several times before in this thread.

Of course the 'Church Times' counts - amongst SoFers it's BIG. Why, this week alone I counted no fewer than 6 Shipmate contributors amongst its pages. And they are only the ones I know about. Which probably means there are even more. [Cool]

This week, it's Mystery Worship (Ship of Fools and other similar schemes) which gets a mention. Page 12 of the paper version.

Good spot, Chorister. [Cool]

Well, among a certain subset of SoFers it's big. Is this something we barbarians in the colonies can look at on-line? For free, of course, we barbarians tend to be cheap. [Razz]

Since that first mention (pre-Y2K) of the Ship in the Boston Globe which led me here, I've never noticed any mention here in New England. But then, aside from the religious aspects of the political scene, coverage of religion in general has pretty much disappeared except for one-off tales of tragedy or wonderfulness at particular churches/synagogues/temples/etc. in the area.

Church Times does have a website,and even offers access to some articles to non-subscribers. Sadly this generosity never seems to extend to those referring to the Ship [Frown]

Incidentally the article on Mystery Worshipping in the current issue wasn't entirely complimentary - rather a case of damning with faint praise, I thought!
