    Default Judas

    Do the kids in The Dingle still burn Judas on Good Friday morning?

    It appears to be a Greek Orthodox church ritual...

    Ah... the Judas Burnings. This is a really quirky scouse tradition. I don't think it happens anymore, but I know people who certainly remember and partook in it.

    I had an article somewhere about this tradition, i'll try and dig it out.

    A coded identity, I suspect - for 'Judas' read 'Pope'! Good that all that animosity has faded away now - thanks mainly, I would argue, to the efforts of those two remarkable Archbishops, Shepherd and Worlock.

    A pointer to the truth or otherwise of this might be to try and establish the date on which that second 'bommy night' was held...

    Would that be Derek Worlock as opposed to Warlock? JB would be a bit of a misfortune to have the name of witchcraft being a priest methinks.
