Sir Conan Doyle on Bishops

Daily Mail (30 november 1918, p. 6)

Sir A. Conan Doyle at a meeting of the Divorce Law Reform Association said politically and collectively bishops were a curse to the country.

"They have no place in politics," be remarked. "They ought to go back to the Church to which they belong. They can find plenty of work there. The state of the poorer clergy is a scandal almost us great as the one we are discussing. They should stick to their own legitimate duties, and allow the public to settle their own affairs in marriage and divorce."
