Tiny devils are in Sunday's details

4th November 2005 at 00:00
The Diary is sad to learn that unruly behaviour has spread to Sunday schools. Young Christians have been flooding toilets and setting off fire extinguishers, reports the Scripture Union, in a less than forgiving tone.

And in church - well, tearing hymn-books , whispering and climbing over pews are just a few of the sins. One reason given is the growing popularity of the "sleepover." After a night at a friend's house watching videos, there's no holding the tiny tearaways. In new guidelines, the union proposes a yellow card system, with exclusion as a last resort. Suffer little children, indeed.
