The Three Wise Persons

That's right. It seems the Church of England wants us to know that this "three wise men" stuff is all wrong. "Wise men and women", doncha know. And the "three" is problematical, too. You can thank the Summa Mammas for discovering this in today's Independent at this link.

(It does explain why they stopped to ask directions. Three wise men travelling on their own wouldn't have stopped to ask directions. After all, they had a perfectly good star to guide them. Three guys would never have stopped to ask that shady Herod character anything.)
