"The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks."
This video is making the rounds in some corners of FaceBook.
I hope it goes viral.
The comment about 'The Mt. Rushmore of Divorce' is particularly brilliant. Indeed, I do believe we have our own in The Episcopal Church:
David Roseberry, David Anderson, and William Wantland (that last one was particularly messy, as I recall). There's got to be a fourth pillar of 'Anglican orthodoxy' in The Episcopal church who has left his wife for some arm candy, divorced and remarried, but I can't call it up right this very red hot second.
Ten years off purgatory for the submission of a viable fourth candidate.
I know. Sadly enough, there are lots of divorced and remarried bishops in the HOB and clergy and leading laity in the HOD.
I'm looking for the ones who are so-called orthodox who love to lecture to LGBT people about 'the sanctity of marriage'.
I think I see a 'photoshop opportunity' in someone's future - and LOTS of T-shirts and buttons on sale at the IntegrityUSA booth at General Convention.
Can't you see it? A picture of the faces of four scoundrels on "The Mount Rushmore of Divorce" with a quote under it: "What do these guys know about the 'sanctity of marriage'"?
Reminds me of that great quote:
"If you want to protect and defend' marriage, pass a constitutional amendment outlawing divorce."
There is a promise of some sun today, but until then, I can hear Karen Carpenter singing "Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down."
I'm replacing it with the mantra: "The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks."
Hope this little clip brightens your Monday. Onward!
