FLORIDA - John Lipscum, a bishop in the state of Florida began upper-level talks with a leading blog expert this weekend at the expert’s winter home in Hell’s Canyon. Following a letter issued by the bishop this past week, in which he called for a 40-day fast from blog reading, Lipscum’s office began consultation with the Strategic Alliance of Theologians in America’s North in order to quell fears being spread by conservative weblogs such as CaNN and Stand Firm.Johnny Lip-scum

Lipscum is pictured here with his closest ally in the fight against disinformation and error, Murray “Moloch” Everton of Hell’s Canyon. Moloch was hired on by the diocese following a row over whether weblogs really are as dangerous as the bishop has made them out to be, and is expected to submit recommendations this week, following their meetings.

A spokesperson for the diocese explained that Moloch was hired on following a series of rigorous interviews. “He laid tracks for troubadors who got killed before they reached Bombay,” RAFwN News was told and was therefore “the best fit for our bishop.”

“He’s also a coward and a turn-coat,” added Lipscum cheerily during a phone interview with RAFwN, last night.

In the letter, Lipscum said that “I would encourage you instead to join me in a 40-day fast from reading the web blogs. Instead, fill that time with prayer, join other members of your congregation to reflect on the scriptures, and allow God’s Holy Spirit to guide the Church through these difficult times.” He also suggested Labyrinth walks, inviting the Presiding Bishop-elect over for tea and harassing elderly ladies on the street.

It would seem, in any event, that this diocesan bishop has made a decision that he intends to stand by. “At least so long as it suits him,” muttered his secretary before terminating the phone call.

RAFwN will continue to cover this story as it unfolds.

I knew it was a humor site, zheesh! Incidentally, if it were really on top of it, the "AN" in "SATAN" would stand for the "Anglican North" (i.e., Canada, US, Scotland, UK).
