NOT JUST A PRETTY LESBIAN

Our divine neighbourhood atheist, IT, has written an ode.
IT first posted it at FRIENDS OF JAKE.

The Crisis over Kat in a Hat

A Bishop went Calling
in old London town
And she brought her hat
and she brought her gown

But someone at Lambeth
said, "not quite so quick,
We must see your papers
In case there's a trick."

Though she'd been there before
She obeyed their directive
To prove her ordination
and office elective

And then Lambeth begrudged,
"you may lead the prayer
but there's a condition:
you can't cover your hair!"

So the Bishop obeyed
And she carried her mitre
but she's a smart lady,
and known as a fighter

So she preached on the Gospel
On love and inclusion
And on hospitality
and at the conclusion,

She proved to be greater
than petty Lambeth priests
She said, "you are welcome,"
She said, "love has saved you,"
She said, "be at peace."

Thqanks to Dah-veeeeeeeed! for sending it in.

  1. I hope they invite her to come back very soon. Bravo, IT!

    Just about an hour ago, my husband walked by singing, “Heffalumps and Prelates…” a riff on Pooh’s nightmare.

    It seems that children’s songs are the only ones which truly capture the…ambience of the Anglican Communion as the ABC interprets it.
