It seems that Angel wants a safe and comfortable church experience (Spalding Guardian, March 20).

The whole point of the film clip was to illustrate the power of anger. Since when was anger safe and comfortable?

The particular Lent lecture was about Jesus kicking all the greedy money changers and sellers of sacrificial animals out of a place of worship, the temple in Jerusalem.

Jesus would have been furious and his language did offend religious sensibilities. What we do know is that his offensive actions and words sealed his fate and a week later the religious leaders arrested him and put him to death.

Perhaps the reason why so many people have little or no interest in church is because they perceive it as safe, comfortable and boring.
