A missing link?

It’s not just St. Paul’s Cathedral that has problems.  Dr Dalrymple describes a small outbreak involving a common variant of the accreditation mindset, albeit without a certificate on conspicuous display.  It involves delusions of working in an airport :

“The women were not allowed to use their common sense, for fear that they might be discriminatory.  But there is no intelligence without discrimination, even if judgment is necessarily uncertain and always prone to error.  The church preferred to dehumanise the women by subjecting them to a rule they knew to be idiotic.  Thus we injure ourselves with lies, to which we apply the bandage of unctuous platitude.”

No accreditation; still standing
