Service of Cultural Appropriation

Complaints from the Welsh regulars in the Beaker Folk that our "Worship in the Celtic Style" is cultural appropriation.

I have given them short shrift. Celtic Worship has got absolutely nothing to do with any traditional worship of the Welsh, Irish, Scots, Bretons or indeed the small Brethonic enclave that survived in the Chilterns during the Angle invasion. If anyone wants to complain about us appropriating their culture on this one, it's probably the people that run Irish Pubs. And we haven't heard a word from them.

  1. Not sure that Welsh worship has anything to do with Celtic authenticity - last time I went to a church in wales, they were singing bawdy coal miner hymns lots of digging and dogging, or at least it sounded like that as they were singing in Welsh :(

  2. What is worship in the "celtic style"? Lots of Enya?

  3. How short was the shrift? Not above the knee, I hope? Even the Celtic fringe should be clad with modesty.
