Report: Archbishop of York on people wanting to ‘test the milk before they buy the cow’


Much as I have been bored by the Royal Wedding buzz, how could I avoid a post related to Will and Kate’s big day? Especially when the Archbishop of York says this, according to the London Telegraph:

“We are living at a time where some people, as my daughter used to say, they want to test whether the milk is good before they buy the cow,” he said. “For some people that’s where their journeys are.

“But what is important, actually, is not to simply look at the past because they are going to be standing in the Abbey taking these wonderful vows: ‘for better for worse; for richer for poorer; in sickness and in health; till death us do part.’”

As you could imagine, some of Dr. John Sentamu’s colleagues are criticizing his words. And not because that’s the princess he’s reportedly talking about. They think he was a bit soft on Anglican doctrine.

Read the rest here. No mention in the story of Kate’s dress.
