Thrusting in the Diocese of Niagara

Filed under: Diocese of Niagara — David Jenkins @ 12:08 am

With Michael Bird’s announcement that the diocese of Niagara is to offer the blessing of same-sex couples this September (triads next September), it is only natural that the diocesan hegemony has its mind set on thrusting. Here’s the proof:

Donate Online
Your donation will help us thrust the Niagara Anglican into the future – communicating the Gospel and the good news of our Anglican tradition to generations to come.

Clearly, without a sufficient degree of thrusting, the Niagara Anglican tabloid is unlikely to find its way unassisted into the future; which would be a shame, since it is of an ideal consistency physically, spiritually and intellectually to make excellent kitty litter when ground up.

It would be remiss of me if I failed to draw attention to the gospel contained in this potential cat commode liner: it is none other that the good news of our Anglican tradition which, by and large, avoids any reference to God, Jesus, sin, atonement or any other of those embarrassingly lunatic notions peddled by rabid fundamentalists.

So, donate today or I will have to start buying commercial remedies to absorb feline feculence.



  1. David,
    Gee, I thought that Niagara had abandoned Anglican tradition. Do you think The Niagara Anglican is planning an editorial change?

  2. Jim,
    I think the operative word is “our”.

  3. Well it certainly has gotten a lot thinner these days. Is it economics?
    Lack of news? Lack of contributors? Lack of interested readers? All of the above? I just can’t decide.

  4. Not a lack of wiling contributors; I know personally one regular writer for the Niagara Anglican who was dis-invited from submitting further articles. His writing is intelligent and articulate; he attends an ANiC church and his articles are orthodox.
