Worst. Pastoral. Care. Ever.

My daughter and I want to nominate Friar Laurence from Romeo and Juliet as the most incompetent pastoral carer ever.
It’s hard to think of anyone who is so genuinely trying to bring about a positive outcome – from which he doesn’t seem to have any personal gain – make so many bad decisions and give such appalling advice in so concise a time frame.
And then he blames God: “A greater power than we can contradict Hath thwarted our intents”.
It’d be a wonder if no one has ended up dead on his watch before this.
