The Church of England and Pointy Knives? By Richard Miller
With England facing a constitutional crisis, as has been covered here in On Target, one would have thought that the Church of England would have more weighty, or is that pointy, things on their politically correct minds? But no:
“A ban on the sale of pointed kitchen knives has been demanded by the Church of England as it says there is no reason for them in the modern world. In a letter to ministers backed by a judge, top trauma doctors and psychiatrists, police and victims, Church of England bishops say re-designing domestic knives to give them rounded ends would combat knife crime by making “life-threatening” injuries “far less likely.” They say sharp knife points were only used historically to pick up food because forks had not been invented and it was a time when they could be carried openly. Sharp points remain only as an anachronistic hangover from 18th century Britain during which forks became commonplace. “Now we only need the point to open packets when we can’t be bothered to find the scissors,” said the Right Reverend James Langstaff, the Bishop of Rochester, the lead signatory and Bishop to HM Prisons. He cited a five-year study in Edinburgh which found that 94 per cent of the sharp instruments used in homicides were kitchen knives.
It is as bad as that. Don’t these goons ever have to cut food, where a point is in fact needed especially with cuts of meat? If points were of no use then they would not have been put on kitchen knives in the first place. Oh, go ahead, ban kitchen knives, ban everything, the modern British subject will not care. They can eat meat tearing it cave person style with their rotting teeth until meat is banned by the New World Order.
