Birds Against God

‘“AND he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird” – Revelations 18:12.

Look out, Noah! It may be a trick

Forget for a moment Noah’s raven and dove and know that birds have turned against God.

The Mail reports that woodpeckers are destroying an historic church by pecking at its 800-year-old wooden spire.

The paper has learnt that the birds, believed to be green woodpeckers, are using the spire of St Andrew’s, in White Colne, Essex, as target practice for their drill-like beaks.

The yet more unsettling detail is that this hammering, this desecration of something sacred to many humans, is – we cannot stand to say the words, but say them we must – intended to end in sex.

The noise of these ungodly beaks pounding away remorselessly at the church sends out a love signal to attract a mate.

Another church in nearby Great Henny, St Mary’s, is also under attack.

What to do? The authorities have tried building a decoy tower, but the birds are ignoring it. Still they chip away at the church.

It is distressing. But no-one said the war with the birds would be easy…’
