Just "Old English vulgarity"

The Rev Alice Goodman, a 'noted poet' and Rector of the parishes of Fulbourn, the Wilbrahams and Six Mile Bottom and  has brought Church of England's relevance to society a big step closer with her bumper sticker which reads WTFWJD (What The F--- Would Jesus Do) claiming that "it is not a blasphemy, it's a vulgarity, an Old English word". 

There are many other Old English four letter words in common use. Let's hope that this doesn't become the new fad in the church. 

The full story here.

  1. Does this mean that the Rev Alice Goodman regards herself as a 'vulgar', liberal Anglican cleric?

    It's difficult to better the comment on the Archbishop Cranmer blog, that, for a start, he wouldn't ordain women!

    1. Indeed. That goes without saying.
