Apology follows Pope joke…

ORANGE Order chaplain Rev Stephen Dickinson copped flak yesterday for his impersonation of the Pope in February. Breaking News reported: Mr Dickinson, Grand Chaplain of the Orange Order, said he had “taken the mickey” out of Pope John Paul II but had not meant to cause any offence. “The joke was neither meant to be anti-Catholic, nor was it anti-Parkinson’s,” he said. Unfortunately for the minister, that’s not how some saw it.

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
