Our twenty-first Sunday outpouring of sanctimony and self-righteous morality to be taken as seriously as Wings Over Scotland’s commitment to: Independence/Rangers/Decency/Sentimentality/Truth
A MAD-DOG used to run up quietly to the heels of everyone he met, and to bite them without notice.
His master suspended a bell about his neck so that the Mad-Dog might give notice of his presence wherever he went.
Thinking it a mark of distinction, the Mad-Dog grew proud of his bell and went tinkling it all over the blogosphere.
One day an old hound said to him: “Why do you make such an exhibition of yourself?
“That bell that you carry is not, believe me, any order of merit, but on the contrary a mark of disgrace, a public notice to all men to avoid you as an ill mannered Mad-Dog.”
Analysis: Mean spirited, no integrity, a pettily vindictive self serving pathology – and that’s just his good points – is it no wonder that the Wings Over Scotland mendicant Rev Stu should learn the moral of this fable: “Notoriety is often mistaken for fame.”
