An Anglican parish priest in northern England, Rev. Tim Jones, has caused quite a stir.
Jones suggested in a sermon on Sunday that it is permissible for people facing tough times to shoplift from large national stores.
On the Church of England website for the Diocese of York, Archdeacon Richard Seed rejected the priest’s call to break the law.
Do you agree with Reverend Tim Jones’ comments about shoplifting in desperate situations?
