The Bishop of Leeds, the Rev Arthur Roche, admitted defeat this week when he told teenagers from across the diocese that his attempts at composing and singing a rap song had come to nothing. He told hundreds of delegates to the ‘Plugged In’ series of Easter reflections that he had hoped to be able to inspire them through music, but after getting the thumbs down from his great nephews, had decided to write them a booklet on going out and spreading the Word of God in their communities instead.

Well if his nephew didn’t like it does that make his attempt a bum rap? Though it is a probably a good thing that it didn’t work out or we could possible see a strange budding career of a bishop wearing a pectoral cross along side his pectoral Mercedes Benz medallion. And how would you a address a rapping bishop? Your Eminemcence? Would rapping bishops be a sign of the end times invoking the Rap-ture?
