Irresistible Episcopal Force Meets Unmovable Anglican Object

Delegates listen to the debate as the Episcopal General Convention tried to decide Tuesday, June 20, 2006 in Columbus, Ohio whether they should bar gays from serving as bishops for now. Delegates are considering a moratorium to appease fellow Anglicans angry about the 2003 consecration of the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire.

OMG, it's Schadenfreude City as American Christianity's big hairdresser problem comes home to roost and craps all over the tracts lining its tarnished cage. Yow! Metaphorolicious!

But as the headline suggests, you've got the irresistible force of increasing acceptance of interior decorators and television makeover stars... you know, everywhere... meeting the unmovable object of certain Christians who just can't can't can't stop obsessing over how much they hate them. Forget the soccer tournament thingy, if that's still going on (is that still going on?), because this is without a doubt my favorite spectator sport at the moment. Which side will win? Who cares! As long as they're unhappy, I'm happy. When resurrection cultists collide, everybody wins!

Tom Skerrit-look-alike: "I look damn good in this frock;" Sada Thompson: "We are all gods' (sic) children;" Ted Turner: Damn you Steve Case, damn you;" an actual good Christian wondering what would Jesus do? Yes, the soccer thingy continues while the succor of faith continues steeped in rancor. You do not cheer progress? Princess, you should!

What progress? Sorry, but I believe the terms "progress" and "religion" are oxymoronic.

I prefer actual opium, myself. It's much more effective.

Pony censorship?! I'm surprised, we are like-minded.

They look like such a happy bunch. Must be all that Jesus goodness that flows to them and through them.

The poor woman's trying not to dwarf Dubya... who looks pretty uptight about this photo op. That's a pretty playful (dare I say it?) pony-like stance she's in. Looks like she just slid out.
