The serious point about #VicarGate is that Newsnight billed someone in a dog collar as a Vicar, which most people take to mean “Ordained in the Church of England” (i.e. as opposed to a Minister, Priest, etc), when in fact they were watching someone apparently self-ordained.
That this is an issue is evident from @BBCNewsnight’s own response, in which they use the term “Pastor” instead of “Vicar” which they used on the programme.
Like it or not, for a part of the population, a Vicar is still a figure of at least some authority, so the person was not actually someone with the authority that people thought they had.
