    So criticism is off limits? It’s not even as blasphemous as the Charlie cartoons…
    It’s annoying and childish, but it’s a British rag. Sound and fury, signifying nothing.

      I think you missed Mark’s point. He is not complaining about the poke article, he is pointing out that going along with the desires of the world (like say ordaining women to the priesthood) is not going to get the world to love Christians anymore. They will still hold us and our beliefs in contempt even if we are their tame lapdogs, so it is better to do what our Lord asked us to do and not give in to the fashions of the age.
