Mrs MP found out yesterday that the misinformation being insidiously propagated throughout the diocese as an explanation for my dismissal is that I proved myself incapable of being in charge of a parish.
The only time I have been in charge of a parish was for two years eleven years ago. For five months of that period I was in hospital because of non-reactive depression dating from four years prior to my incumbency and for twelve months I was on the sick recovering.
An assistant curate is never in charge of a parish in the Church of England and has no authority. The person in charge of a parish that is in interregnum is the rural dean.
The deflection of guilt always leads to lies and greater sins.
