“Comedy has a long tradition of poking fun at those with power. The Church doesn’t like to think of itself as powerful, particularly when our founder, Jesus, was critical of the religious hierarchy and suffered the consequences. Yet despite protestations, the Church, for good and for ill, is a powerful body and like all powerful bodies is constantly in danger of taking itself too seriously.”
Article from St Matthew in the City, in Auckland New Zealand, ‘When Buffoons Became Bishops‘.
