NOW THANK WE ALL OUR DOGS

From THE BOSTON HERALD:

Calvary Episcopal Church, in Danvers, will offer, later this month, its first "Perfect Paws Pet Ministry" aimed at giving area pooches and their owners improved odds at getting canines into heaven. The service, on the third Sunday of every month, will come complete with communion for the humans and special blessings for pets. Dogs will get special treats.

Well-mannered, leashed dogs are invited. People can submit a paper prayer if their pets are sick, not good around other dogs or deceased. Prayers can also be offered for other types of pets.

Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas says dogs will have a say during service because barking won’t be banned.

COMMENT: Oh, yes. Here we go again. More blatant speciesism. Notice how the dogs always get treats but nobody ever gives the priest one. It certainly is a dog's life - but only if you are a dog.

  1. I am so going to tell Joanna, Father.

    But, on the bright side, you will have more time to devote to your blog and all the extra comments you will be receiving just as soon as I can be arsed to add your excellent site to my Blogroll of Shame (a.k.a. THE NEIGHBOURHOOD).

    No. There is no appeal procedure.

  2. I believe that is the deposed former bishop of Fort Worth not David Anderson. Someone really needs to tell Mr. Iker that men in Texas don’t wear lace…I don’t care how Anglo-Catholic you are.
