"After I preached the sermon, I just remember it was like I could feel slaves around the place," Bishop Curry, 67, says. "I don't mean to be spooky, but it was like their voice was somehow heard that day. I included one of their songs, 'There is a Balm in Gilead.'

He didn’t mention the great big stoogie he puffed before the ‘service’ for the ginger whinger and his actress, me gain. Nor the magic mushroom omelette he had at breakfast that morning.

Fact Check: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Construction began in 1475 and completed in 1511.

Fact Check: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Construction began in 1475 and completed in 1511. According to the British National Archives , "John Hawkins is considered to be the first English slave trader. He left England in 1562 on the first of three slaving voyages." St. George's Chapel had already been finished and standing for over half a century before Hawkings' ship ever left port. St. George's Chapel wasn't constructed with slave labour.

Wiki gives an earlier date of 1554, but construction on St. George's Chapel had already been completed for 43 years. Also, Hawkins' slaves never saw England. The slaves he transported for his three voyages were sold at Santo Domingo, Rio de la Hacha in Colombia, and in the Caribbean. One of the earliest English court cases 1569 addressing slavery didn't involve Africans at all. The slave was a Russia and the court freed him, famously citing, "that England was too pure an air for a slave to breathe in."

In a word, there were no "slaves about the place" Britain's slave trade was aimed at supplying agricutlural labour and St. George's Chapel isn't a farm.

This is how people descended from slaves re-write history for their own narrative of victimhood.

Whatever Bishop Curry was feeling is more likely the result of what Charles Dickens famously described as "an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato." There's "more of gravy than of grave" to Bishop's feeliings. ;-)

He's an Episcopalian--a layman not a bishop.

Maybe Bishop is his first name. Prince Michael Jackson II isn't a prince. :D
