Clergy tested by Commandments

 

LONDON - British church officials yesterday leapt to the defence of priests who cannot rattle off all 10 Commandments, saying it was substance, not words, that counted. A poll by the Sunday Times found only 34 per cent of 200 Anglican priests polled could recite all 10 without help. "When people are put on the spot like this, of course they can't remember," a Church of England spokesman said.
