archbuggery

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 07, 2010

Some stories paralyze parody. Milwaukee's cathedral boasts a bronze bas-relief with an image of former Archbishop Rembert Weakland, he of the durchgebohrte boyfriends and the $450,000 indent for hush-money. Objectors have been informed they misunderstand the artistic thrust.

Father Carl Last says SNAP's got it wrong. The image actually represents diversity.

He's got you there.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Hopefully this is a monument to how NOT to run a diocese!

    Why content yourself with a few durchgebohrte boyfriends when you can bugger a whole diocese? Depravity knows no limits.

    His Excellency has always been a daring risk-taker on behalf of his own soul, but this is rather like throwing your sins at the face of God. Either we have a closet atheist here or someone with a mental disorder that boggles the mind. As for Father Carl Last...let's hope that he is.

    Insult to injury: "Weakland will be in town next week to discuss renovations to the church." I can hardly wait to see the results of THOSE consultations.

    Appalling.

    Diversity!!! It's "Diversity" that is ruining this nation. This tribute to Rembert Weakland is so appalling, I can't believe the people of Milwaukee will tolertate it.

    I concur with some of the comments in the original citation: the current Bishop should have the bronze removed and melted down into something that honors our Mother rather than put up with this mockery.
