All significant truths are private truths. As they become public, they cease to be truth; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst catchwords.
As a 'liberal' I allow my bitch to say mass. She has gorgeous doggy vestments - and preaches quite well too.
I had to dissuade Bessie from doing the Alpha course, I have signed her up for the Lent bible study at church. I think you'll find that a lot of Church of England clergy think that letting bitches preach or say mass is completely unacceptable.
You are wise not to allow Bessie to embark on a happy-woofy Alpha course. She would have become a rabid mad bitch. I only allow my own canine girl to say mass because, like Our Lady, she is Ever-Virgin.
I hope you don't let Milly regard Ann Widdecombe as a role model though?
