Blogger James Preece in the lions' den!
Three cheers for James Preece of Catholic and Loving it blog, who took part in today's edition of the BBC programme 'the Big Questions'.
The subject of the discussion was:
'Is this Pope a liability?
That sort of title is always a bit of a giveaway, and the slant of the programme was clear from the beginning, with such 'heavies' as Sir Stephen Wall (one time advisor to Cardinal Cormac), agreeing immediately and suggesting that the Pope was accident-prone and careless.
As far as I could tell, there were two people who spoke up for and defended the Holy Father; one was James and the other Peter Jennings, press secretary to Archbishop Nichols.
If you would like to see 'the big questions' , James has the link on his blog.
