This is also the post we have received the more grief, complaints, whining, and gnashing of teeth over. As a result the combox is closed. I am tempted to post some of the vile nasty emails I have received with email addresses. Even though some are sent anonymously, a couple of the same writers have previously written us from the same ISP address! HOWEVER, that is against my policy . As mean and as nasty and as despicable as many of you have accused me of being, lacking charity, etc, the vile name calling some of you have used would make a truck driver blush. OH, and those of you who signed me up to receive multiple pornographic SPAM emails, (both of you) have been reported to the appropriate internet and legal authorities. Not too smart using your business computer. That little trick might cost you your lay job at the chancery.
Word has reached us that Shawn Tribe, of the New Liturgical Movement is stepping down from the throne. "It has nothing to do with the retirement of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI," said Shawna, and by implication Pope Francis' very clear message that drag queen dress up Mardi Gras is over. Nah, not at all.
Stepping up to the Throne is Jeffrey Tucker, of bow tie fame over at Chant Cafe. Hey- if you can't wear a lace alb to work the next best thing is a bow tie! (Don't you wish your boyfriend was hot like me..)
Of course the departure of one sovereign and the reception of another cannot just happen with the exchange of a few website passwords! This is the New Liturgical Movement after all.
The contributors, supporters, consultants have all been working round the clock to research an appropriate ancient ritual for the changing of the guard. Much like the resignation of a pope, no one has ever heard of a right wing liturgical blogger stepping down. Word is that even fellow blogger Father Zzzz has been flown to NYC (on someone else's dime of course) to access resources of the Big Apple's libraries, schools and museums.
A renowned liturgical composer who wishes to remain anonymous has drafted an appropriate hymn for the rite. The chorus, well choir, has been rehearsing. They already know the tune well.
