The Church & Lighter Fluid
Well, I know you are expecting day three of my crusade to disprove the Seven Deadly Sins but, I have three Cardinals, two Bishops, an Arch-Deacon and some guy calling himself the Grand Dragon sitting in my living room.
Apparently my completely sound, irrefutable, flawless reasoning and air-tight logic – threatens to topple the entire Judeo-Christian religious infrastructure. The cause and effect ultimately being if I were to continue disproving the Seven Deadly Sins it would only serve to throw the roughly 2.1 billion Catholics world-wide into frenzied disarray.
Indeed they made an impassioned plea, with a lovely little power-point presentation and a small interpretive art-dance piece featuring the Bishops and this Dragon fellow and then summed it up and concluded with an interactive puppet show…. really the whole thing was quite well done.
To be honest, although I’ve never met a Cardinal or Bishop in person, I’m a little bit suspicious about these guys. I snapped this quick photo of the fellas and their security detail.
When I asked them “what’s up with the get-ups” – I went on to mention that I had seen Bishops and Cardinals on TV and they never dressed the way these chaps were, at first they tried to pass it off as they were simply wearing their “travelling robes”. But I wasn’t having any of it.
They then switched tactics and explained that because they came from different parts of the world and much like the Americans celebrate their Thanksgiving on a different date than Canadians, the church celebrated Halloween on a different date then we did, hence the face-covering hoods. Ok, well that makes sense, I like Halloween as well and sure would hate to miss it, if I was on the road for business…
After their presentation, I politely explained how I completely understood their position and certainly my intention was not to get the right-wing, fundamentalist Christians of the world all in a tizzy – BUT I would be doing a gross disservice to my readers if I simply….. hang on…. what he hell are they doing on my lawn…..
hey, what are you…..
