Rowan Atkinson reprimands Vicars

Our Vicars have come under fire from the British actor, Rowan Atkinson. The actor who is better known as Mr Bean and who himself has played the parts of Vicars in movies such as Four Weddings and a Funeral in the guise of humour is not joking in his scathing attack.

'So many Church of England clerics are people of extraordinary smugness and arrogance and conceitedness', he says.

As in every walk of life there is good and there is bad and Vicars are not exempt from this rule of life. I am glad to say that most of the vicars I have met are caring and concerned for their flock. The ones who suffer from the traits that Rowan Atkinson mentions tend to be those who are ambitious and see the local parish as as a stone to step on while looking upwards (not at God either).
