A report from The Times – London
A 2006 Church of England report warned that disagreeable congregants, together with the pressures of the church’s “feudal system” bureaucracy, were turning priests harshly negative and creating an “irritable clergy syndrome.” One of the report’s authors told The Times of London in December that priests are bothered by “having to be nice all the time to everyone, even when confronted with extremes of nastiness,” such as aggressive and neurotic parishioners.
I wonder what the symptoms of “irritable clergy syndrome” are…
Clergy telling rude parishoners exactly what is on their minds.
Sense of self importance.
Most likely the same symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
I KNEW that if I waited, somebody would say it. Thanks david
