Vicars should grow BEARDS to reach out to Muslims in their areas, says Bishop of London
"Their parishioners" as if Muslims consider themselves such? When it's more a question of being able to walk down the street without being hassled for being infidels.Rt Rev. Richard Chartres praised two priests who had grown bushy beards
Applauded their desire to reach out to the 'majority of their parishioners'
Bishop described his own beard, which he grew in the 1970s, as modest
He also said 'saint' David Beckham encouraged men to grow facial hair
They should also stop drinking beer and eating pork. And pray facing Mecca. On their bellies with their shoes off.
Maybe they can convert the Muslims to being just as blase about religion as your average C of E infidel?
