I Would Not, Could Not, in a Church

Theodor Seuss Geisel was, I am told, a lifelong member of a LCMS parish in Springfield, Massachusetts.

This, of course, was perpetrated in an Anglican parish.

Not very far off from Trinity Church's "clown Eucharist."

Not the first time! It was done a few years ago in Pittsburgh. It joins other bizarre-charists like the Pirate-charist, and clown-charist. We had a priest do a 2 minute "PDQ-charist." You can google the video of it. Not nearly as bad, but it left the passing college students looking befuddled. I blogged on this a few months ago with suggestions (tongue in cheek) for other thoughtful and creative liturgists: http://thegospelside.com/2013/01/21/clergy-gone-wild-clowning-around-with-communion/

So many horror movies and the like have changed clowns from figures of fun and silliness into ominous and threatening creatures that I have to think the whole clown mass trope has been hopelessly subverted anyway.

Sad that this is what has become of Cranmer's once beautiful and biblical liturgy..
