I'm so relieved

For a minute or two, I thought I had been wrong about someone. (OK, maybe it was only a second.)

But somehow, I knew Cardinal Turcotte wouldn't disappoint.

[Morgentaler] saved the lives of women by helping them avoid being butchered by charlatans," said the Cardinal.

Someone send that man a coathanger.

Just hang in there Montreal. Just three more years.

A theme-song:


(Tune is that of MacNamara's Band):

O, me name is Torquemada.

I'm the leader of the band.

Although, we're few in numbers,

We're feared throughout the land.

We tortures Moors and Atheists

And kicks them when they fall,

But when we works on heretics,

We works the best of all.

O, the rack goes "creak",

And the thumbscrews squeak,

And the Whips all flail away.

The Jesuit slams the iron maiden shut,

While I kneels in the corner to pray.

The auto-da-fe is God's chosen way

To purge sin from the land!

Another soul to heaven from Torquemada's and!


Yadadada, dadadadada

Yadadada, dadadada

Yadadada, dadadadada!

Another soul to heaven from Torquemada's Band!

We really need to go back to an all-male, all-heterosexual episcopacy.

What, dear Hilary, is so great about burning heretics is that it doesn't really matter if you're wrong about somebody or if you're right. Once it's done, it's done. If only it had been done for His Eminence. Thanks for the link.
