Giles Fraser interviewed on BBC

Giles Fraser interviewed on BBC

Reverend Canon Dr Giles Fraser, who resigned in protest from his position as Chancellor of St Paul’s over how the cathedral handled its relationship with the Occupy movement, was interviewed in depth on the BBC Newsnight. (Watch the video here)

The BBC suggests that “…the Church as a whole seems unsure how to deal with the confrontation and its position on western capitalism.”

Dr. Fraser told Newsnight that while he understood the “practical problems with the camp being there… I actually think the bigger picture is the questions they are raising.

“There probably needs to be a well worked out exit strategy, by the protesters themselves… They probably would have gone by now had the Corporation of London not decided to take out its legal action.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
