“Can’t hear ourselves think”

Two responses in the Sydney Morning Herald to news that the organist at Sydney’s St Andrew’s Anglican cathedral has been asked to tone down the music he plays at the end of services because it is too loud and parishioners “cannot hear themselves think”.

“Given the anti-intellectual stance of most modern evangelicals, I don’t think it’s the organist’s fault that parishioners of St Andrew’s are having trouble thinking.” Anthony Hooper, Oatley.

“Music at St Andrew’s is an easy target and has been since the takeover of the Anglican Church in the Sydney diocese by those modern-day Puritans, the Jensens. They will not rest until every vestige of what makes the Angloican Church Anglican is replaced by a dumbed-down, one-size-fits-all, mindless, soulless and Godless “worship facility” devoted to the delivery of a sermon.” Greg Oehm, Robertson.
