Psalm 149:3 Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.
This one was sorta timely and doesn't make as much sense away from its context in space-time. It was generated in response to all the Ortho-triumphalism about the RCC World Youth Day dancing bishops.

Strange; the people I know who actually went to WYD were worried the Bishops were having epileptic seizures, and brought out their rosaries to pray for the sudden electric shocks to pass.

That made me wonder what my bishop would do...then I found this: HG Bishop Youssef sings a song

The priest sitting next to him is one of the priests who serves us here in ABQ sometimes, Abouna Philemon. This is probably about as wild as we get, without including the cymbals and triangle... Smiley

Only someone who has only lived in a functioning democracy can be spoiled enough to reject it.

I could deal with a figurehead monarch, those are always harmless. A wax figure might be more economical though.

I was referring to his avatar and not to his political stance. I'm a bit of a monarchist myself but I've just yet to come out of the closet. I think most of the people are since no one wants to take republicanism into it's logical end. Most of democracies are glazed with monarchist customs.
