Controversial vicar refuses to comment over his use of the Police to threaten blogger
Update – Having initially chosen not comment, Reverend Sizer has got back to me in some detail, for which I’m very grateful.
Stephen Sizer has now replied to my request for clarification of his reasons for calling in the Police over his spat with the blogger “Seismic Shock”. Reverend Sizer states that “I do not wish to comment and am happy to leave the matter to the Police”.
This is obviously his business, but it does mean that his critics have pretty much a clear run on this issue. Sizer must surely have realised by now that they aren’t going to shut up about it, however many times he threatens them.
I am genuinely interested to know what Reverend Sizer’s perspective on this issue actually is. At the moment all we have is a story about a representative of our only state-sponsored Church making a lot of very strident comments about the political situation in the Middle East but then calling the Police when some people who (even more stridently) disagree say mean stuff about him on the internet. Surely if Reverend Sizer really has the courage of his convictions he will be prepared to stand by his words, and his actions?
