Mad Priest linked to the Gay post and here's our little back and forth:
MP: The Tattooed Lady spells the whole gay thing out nice and simple at SARCASTIC LUTHERAN today.
Of course, it would have to be simple, her being a Lutheran and all that, but sometimes us Anglicans can learn some important things off even the most primitive of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Let's have a bit of a history lesson shall we? Who had the more "primitive" reason for breaking from Rome...Martin Luther, or Henry 8?
Despite your questionable beginings I have to say I feel a particular fondness for you Anglican types . . . you're like our overly verbous 1st cousins.

Henry VIII? What's he got to do with Anglicanism?
The Church of England was founded whilst Jesus was still a young man, maybe even just a boy. His Uncle Joseph of Arimathea, a merchant, brought him to England on one of his many trading trips to our beautiful country. At this point, everybody in the land converted to Christianity. Jesus gave us the Book of Common Prayer and the King James Bible and explained to us all about P.C.C.s and the arranging of Autumn Bazaars.
If this is not true, how come the Bible's in English? How come Jesus spoke English?
You know, the bush is still there in Glastonbury.
"And did those feet in ancient times..."
But don't get me wrong. Although we are far superior to you in so many ways, I always insist that Martin Luther, although a crap theologian, did write some half decent hymns, and I also liked his "I have a dream" sermon - I've got that written down somewhere.
