According to The Mint’s website, Rev Andrew Sails read out the text of Seven Jewish Children in his sermon on Sunday.
The dishonesty and amorality of the adult voices in Seven Jewish Children is striking. Nowhere are right and wrong considered, when deciding how to answer their children’s questions. Never does an adult in the play consider whether their suggested answer is true or not, nor whether this should have any bearing on which answer is given. Their only thought is which answers will best shield Jewish children from difficult moral questions. It is as if Jewish children are brought up in a moral vacuum, with Jewish power and vulnerability the only things that matter.

At least the church’s own children left for Sunday school. No parents should allow their child to hear this hatred.
