Fundamentalism.

Blogging can be fun or funny. For example, the Mad Pries blog, defends almost to the death, the right of people to have and be different. Well, to a degree. Any comment not 'larded' with praise for the old guy, automatically gets deletedBEFORE it even appears.

The 'community', as he calls his gang, must only post the most lavish praise for the old guy. Any thing with even the slighty MP nonconformity to the MP creed is strictltly forbidden. Well there goes freedom of expression. I checked a few hubdred comments on his site, and they all expressed absolute loyalty to the fuhrer(sp).

What ever happened to different point of view.

MP is a fundamentalist. Every thing he writes is--well---inspired. Isn't it??

    Hmmmm...perhaps his popularity has to do with him being named one of the 50 most influential Anglicans worldwide? Just sayin'...

  2. "Larded" are you suggesting he's fat?

  4. Love a link to that list, Nonnie #42,369 , so how 'bout you put your money where your mouth is and post it? The London Daily Telegraph published a list of "The 50 most influential figures in the Anglican Church" in 2008. Your boy didn't make that cut. Where then?

  5. The most influential Anglicans. And he's just a curate with a blog.

    As you might guess, Hitler was one of the 50 most influential figures in Nazism. Should I be worshiping "Bishop" Duncan. And John Wilkes Booth as one of the 50 most important American assassin.Of course, MP is not a Nazi or an assassin. Just pointing out that most influential can be taken many ways.

    But I place MP number one on the list of the biggest whiner and pity seeker in the Christian Church

    He is abviously a grump because no Church wants him as vicar.

    BTW, are members of the 'community'required to sign only as annonymous.?

  6. Stalin was the one who got his start as a seminarian, Mark.

  7. Stalin DID go to a seminary.MP went to truck driver school. Right?

  8. Just wandered over following the link from OCICBW - what is this truck driver thing? Is there something wrong with truck drivers? Can they not be priests? Is there some rule?

  9. Damn, Mark! You've got your own link in the Of Course I Must Be Right side-bar. Dish-it-out-but-can't-take-it-Hagger even has his own, imagined, nasty piccy of you. Rich, coming from one who hasn't the balls to post an image of himself taken later than 1965.

    Speaking of which, praise to that Anonymous who tweaked the curtain to reveal Oz the Gweat and Tewwibble in his full, adulated splendor. Just knew the J H Newman thing was a put-up job.

  10. I don't know what MP is putting on his blog about me. He has me blocked on his blog. But so far the information and picture of "me" on his blog have nothing to do with me. So people refer to him as Mad Priest. It really fits.

  11. The termination of Jonathan's curacy is the subject of a Ruth Gledhill piece in today's Times. Apparently she is the source of the report, discussed above, that Jonathan is on the Daily Telegraph's 2008 "50 most influential figures in the Anglican Church" list. She is misinformed - he is not on the list.

    Bitter, party of four, your table is ready. There are at least four personalities inside there, right? And your South Carolina librarian follower has a couple to spare, too, right? Enjoy your pity party, boys. You were shown the door from the club and now have nothing but your anger to keep you warm. Grow up, John and Roger. You make a perfect couple but this is sad.

  13. Hooker, I haven't the vaguest idea what you are saying. Please translate.

  14. Less I'm very much mistaken, Mark - and I'd bet pretty heavily from the nature and style of the malice that I'm not - you've just had another visit from The Man Himself. Playing the same, sad "I know where you live" game that his house elf attempted on an earlier thread. Far easier to show up here, parading his true nature, than it would have been, to take an instance, to correct Ms Gledhill in the fabrication - fed to her by whom, I wonder? - that he was on the Telegraph's 2008 "Fifty Top Anglicans" list. Just failed to notice that one, I guess.

    Giles Fraser made it, though, didn't he, "Hooker"?

    Yesterday at StandFirm, where interest in Jonathan's "situation" seems to be passing that at Gledhill's "Times", David Ould floated the preposterous allegation that the diocese canned Jonathan for conducting a same-sex blessing. The rich irony of this is that had Jonathan done so - and I doubt that the diocese would have done much, if anything, he had he done so - he might have gone down in a good cause - one to which he has paid much lip service - rather than going out in Dime-store Trollope style, felled in a cat-fight with the organist.

    Free house; no children; two professional salaries. Why the PayPal button to bankroll the birthday high jinks?

  15. You really ARE jealous, aren't you, "Mark"?

    Don't worry, "Mark." You've got Lapin brownnosing you, so maybe you'll get another fan!

  16. How many other Anglicans are there by now?
    Isn't that about how many people you get in church any given Sunday-50?

    ReplyDelete
  17. By the way, that is what Hooker above was saying.

    Lapin is just sucking up to Mark.

    You two are acting like the bitter, angry, spoiled school children who were sent out of the class for being disruptive.

  18. Accusations of "brown[-]nosing" and "sucking up" are pretty rich, coming from a Hagg-hag.

    No if you check your site's status logs you will see that I'm not MadPriest. You will notice that I'm commenting from a US I.P. address.

    You and your friend Lapin (I mean Roger the librarian from S.C.) are obviously blogging from Mars.

    How does it feel to have your own troll? This could be fun, nutjob.

  20. Hooker, If you would say something reasonable, I might pay attention to you. But gibberish---no

  21. Roger the retired librarian, Hooker. D'you know, I've never seen a three-legged turd. Would you post a scan?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Or select, from the Bristol Stool Scale the image which most closely resembles you.

    Lapin: does your new boyfriend know about your fascination with poop? Who knew that a broken down old queen like you could put Mapplethorpe to shame? Scat is gross but if that's your thing...

    You know, I never mastered those rules about the handkerchiefs. Would you tuck that brown handkerchief into your left rear pocket or the right?

  24. Hooker, I don't know what you're saying, but I suspect you pick this stuff up from MP based on his experience at the 'funny'farm or your experience with 'funny farm' graduates.
