WOMEN BISHOPS – IT’S GOING TO BEVLAD THE IMPALER ALL OVER AGAIN!

It's worse than I ever imagined. This is a real headline from a Jonathan Petre article in The Telegraph:

To be fair to the headline writer, he or she is quoting an obliging church "insider" predicting, before the event, that the vote in Synod would result in the streets of York running red with the blood of the delegates. That "insider" must have been disappointed when Armageddon didn't break out in the chamber and, I have to admit, so am I (just a teeny weeny bit). It would have gone viral on YouTube.

  1. Dear MP,

    I can’t say too much one way or the other regarding York, but here in the States, we’ve been promised a Gay-pocalypse here in every state and township that gives ‘them-thar queers’ anything resembling rights.

    Day 440 since Iowa said gays could marry – Still no gay-pocalypse.

    Personally, I’m rather disappointed. There’s a lot of public buildings around here which could use new curtains and proper landscaping.

    *sighs*

  2. We’re just not trying hard enough, Tim. I suggest we go for the legalisation of bestiality and necrophilia and lowering the age of consent to 3 years old, next time. Oh, and free hard drugs for the unemployed paid for by taxpayers.

  3. Ah, a new prophecy, straight out of Macbeth: “When Zulu Wars come to Jonathan Petre…”

    –sheila–

  4. Jonathan, I should have complimented you on the cartoon and the words in the balloon, which are quite good, but just seeing a picture of the man puts me in a bad mood, because he never has a kind word for or to the Episcopal Church.

    The headline and quote may be a bit of a hype. Perhaps “smoking ruins” would be a better analogy?
