I’ve never been a fan of Madeleine Bunting – Our Maddy of the Sorrows. I have the strong impression that underneath all the hand-wringing lies something close to the vituperativeness and dogmatism of a Melanie Phillips. I think that yesterday, Bunting inadvertently let the mask slip in a piece in the Guardian titled "The Problem With Ophelia Benson". It’s a rather nasty piece, and actually shines an unflattering light into corners of Bunting’s psyche rather than Benson’s. Ophelia has responded in measured fashion here.
The latest Jesus and Mo cartoon seems to speak to the situation as well.
