Fathers and sons

The job of the preacher is to bring fresh sperm! And when he speaks it, the womb, the church, is to take it in!
Thus spoke Bishop Eddie Long, a man of God who is now a good deal of trouble. Bishop Long, who officially does not approve of gayness, is the spiritual son of Bishop Earl Paulk, himself no stranger to sexual scandal; Long in his turn is the spritual father to our own Bishop Brian Tamaki. Of course, none of these men are real bishops: there has been no apostolic succession. They make themselves bishops. But at least they keep the old traditions of bishoprics.

Meanwhile, Bishop Brian is big in Nelson but still not very bright:
During his sermon, Mr Tamaki quoted verses from the book of Deuteronomy in the Bible, including where God speaks of educating a new generation in his ways, and creating a new "master race". He asked the congregation who he was quoting, and one church member said "Hitler!". "Hitler? No, it's God," Mr Tamaki replied.
