MadPriest is a Genius!

I haven’t tried to blog about the many developments in the recent drama in the Anglican Communion. I have relied on others to cover and comment on it all: the two Pentecost letters [the fearful angry one from Rowan Williams, and the brave Christian one from Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori] … the over-reaching letters from Kenneth Kearon booting Episcopalians off Anglican Communion committees … the wonderful speeches and sermons of our Presiding Bishop in Canada, Scotland, and England … the marvelous reception our Presiding Bishop has received in those other provinces of the Anglican Communion … the discussions about whether the Episcopal Church (U.S.) should continue to pay its full contribution to the Anglican Communion Office … the meeting of the Executive Council of General Convention now in progress … the news that +Williams apparently asked +KJS to absent herself from her elected position on the Joint Standing Committee of the Primates and the Anglican Consultative Council … and “MitreGate” – the travesty in which Rowan Williams forbade +KJS to wear her mitre at Southwark Cathedral in England and insisted that she present (yet again!) papers to prove her ordination and consecration. [As The Lead observes here, +KJS has been licensed previously to officiate in the Church of England; so Lambeth’s requiring her to present all the paperwork yet again cannot be anything other than harassment.]

Other bloggers have kept up with all that. There have been many marvelous posts all over the blogosphere offering news and/or commentary. Of course, news has come from The Lead, Thinking Anglicans, and Episcopal News Service. Great commentary has come from many other of my blogging friends – too many for me to single out.

But I must highlight this one. It’s the most hilarious commentary I have seen on +Rowan’s idiotic Papal Grab. In this one image, MadPriest rivals The Onion as the Most Brilliant Satirist in the Entire Anglican Universe. I bow in MadPriest’s general direction. He is a genius.

I'm beginning to think a large wooden horse would be a better image for the present ABC, but MP did nail it.
