Hey, Check Out These Clowns

Vicious rumors that Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury and top decision maker in the Worldwide Anglican Non Communion (WANC), has been spotted in Detroit hustling for spare change are presently unconfirmed. But we do know this. The Episcopal Church's Diocese of Central New York has a new bishop figure!

Some Clowns, Goofing Off in Church

That's right, De De Duncan-Probe, Ph.D, was made Bishop of Central New York on December 3. No kidding. De De Duncan-Probe, Ph.D, is the first ever womyn bishop figure of the 13,000 member, and shrinking fast, diocese.

Hey, Good Lookin'!

Here's what De De Duncan-Probe, Ph.D, had to say about the state of the nation:

“I am overwhelmed with joy and gratitude today as I join the people of Central New York in ministry. Especially because I believe we have a crucial role to play right now. The Episcopal Church’s radical welcome, and our commitment to reconciling dialogue, make our communities a beacon of hope in an increasingly divided society.”

Or, roughly translated, "I'm a pathetic whining lib on the wrong side of history."

Just Clownin' Around

Sorry, De De Duncan-Probe, Ph.D, your crew lost and lost hard, but maybe your famous radical welcome will fill all those empty pews. 


Good luck, Diocese of Central New York.

Your Old Pal,

Please don't insult clowns with this comparison..

Nice acronym there, LSP.

De De Duncan Probe? Sounds like a B rated gangsta rap celeb.

LL said...

De-De Probe -- just the name sounds filthy.

Anyway, I wish WANC all of the luck that they deserve. However, a gender-reassigned person would have been more progressive than an old woman. Then again, maybe she's in tight with Podesta - in which case it would be tough to be more progressive.

LSP said...

Well done for being polite about the curious name, Jules!

Then there's the acronym...

LSP said...

I think you're right, LL.

They don't have a gender-reassigned person as a bishop figure. That's not very "radical welcome."

LL said...

It's not 'radical' in the age of ObamaNation. It's mainstream - and exceptionally politically correct.

LL said...

I hear that Slow Joe Biden is looking for a job. What about Bishop in WANC? He's a Roman Catholic, but the crew could sway him to cross over. We know that he attends tranny conventions and freak shows regularly. He might convince them to come on board with WANC and would fill those empty seats with the wretched refuse of American society. Since Podesta is on his team as well, he could become a high priest in WANC - he'd fit in. Hillary could bring a lesbian liturgical dance troop to the game. It would complete the clown show.

LSP said...

Hunh. LL, you've got a point.

Make Slo-Jo a WANC Bishop, after all, he's a big hit with the trannies and TEC's all about that. Hell, Make Podesta and Marina Abramovic WANC Bishops too.

And Hillary!

Yes, the cast is near complete.

our commitment to reconciling dialogue

What does that even mean?

I can't get past the name.

LSP said...

Adrienne, I think it means "lesbian theater workshop," but I'm not an expert.

The name is particularly special. I mean really, you can't make this stuff up.

Adrienne said...

"Lesbian theater workshop" sounds about right.

I am thankful that God didn't bring me to life in NY, and that I have never had to go to NY.

Don't know what else to say, except you all be safe, and God bless America!

The theatre meme is strong. The TEC bishops do look like an amateur dramatic society's version of a chorus line of bishops. "TEC - the musical" has real potential and could be very, very funny. Got this years panto booked yet?

LSP said...

I think it pretty much fits the bill, Adrienne.

LSP said...

I like "The Island" well enough, Linda, and always have fun there, but central NY? No thanks.

Anonymous, I'm waiting for the script.
