Quote of the day from Wind in the Willows

One morning the girl was very thoughtful, and answered at random, and did not seem to Toad to be paying proper attention to his witty sayings and sparkling comments.

`Toad,’ she said presently, `just listen, please. I have an aunt who is a washerwoman.’

`There, there,’ said Toad, graciously and affably, `never mind; think no more about it. I have several aunts who OUGHT to be washerwomen.’

No, God would not have approved of gay bishops

[Original Link] A well-considered argument in favour of the church’s traditional stance from Matthew Parris, whom one might not expect to take this line.
