THE LEGENDARY pop icon Boy George has returned a Cypriot church icon that he bought in the eighties, after a Bishop saw it hanging on the singer’s wall on a TV show....more

Don't Cypriot Bishops have nothing better to do than watching interviews with pop stars?

I would rather George Michael return to the the Cypriot Church. And Yusuf Islam while we are at it.

But may Boy George receive his reward.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Maybe they were doing a deep and extensive study of 80's popular culture, so as to better minister to certain members of their flock.  :police:

Amen to all three. 
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

My question:  Why would Boy George even want to own this icon in the first place?  I don't know anything about his religious/spiritual practices, I concede.
Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!  ;D

I believe he said he was Catholic for a period or at least his family was.

The smallest things can be counted by God - may "Boy George" receive some spiritual blessings for this act. It was a wonderful act of his. Let us pray for him.

He asked for no financial reward - fair play to him.
