Taking part in a riot can be an ecstatic, spiritual experience says bishop

A rather sweetly foggy Anglican clergyman is in trouble in the conservative press for saying rioting can be an ecstatic  spiritual experience

 One knows what he means. Ex stasis. Like the Dionysian mysteries.

Tins of sardines have changed but, even after 50 years, Anglican clergymen still resemble Alan Benett's parson who said, 

' Life, you know, is rather like opening a tin of sardines. We are all of us looking for the key. '
