The Rev Dr Giles Fraser, Priest-in-Charge at St Mary Newington in London, and formerly Canon at St Paul’s Cathedral, is taking part in a chaired discussion on the future of capitalism in the aftermath of Occupy at St Paul's.
Regular readers of my blog (a small but much appreciated group!) may wonder if I've got a bit obsessed with the Occupy eviction and my forced removal from the steps of St Paul's Cathedral. Looking back now, I realise that my last five blog entries have been about it.
I admire David Ison, who was appointed Dean of St Paul's Cathedral earlier this week, for speaking up for same-sex marriage in his first national media interview after being appointed. I'm sorry that he ruined it within days by defending the forced eviction of Occupy London Stock Exchange in language that manages to be both evasive and insulting.
Following the clamour since Tuesday morning about the involvement of St Paul’s in the eviction of Occupy London Stock Exchange, the cathedral have now released another statement. It is longer than yesterday’s statement, but completely fails to answer the questions that are being asked from all sides.
