The anti-pedophile coloring book

SF Gate's Mark Morford has another funny article on the new coloring book from the Church. He got it from this newsweek article.

"Remember kids, when putting on (or taking off) your vestements with a priest in the room, always have a couple of perky angels hovering nearby. You know, just in case. "

There has been so much terror as a result of the abuse in the catholic church that it even gets its own website on the Boston Globe.

And then there was this last weeks shooting at a mega church in Colorado. "A gunman attacked worshippers at a Colorado Springs, Colorado, megachurch Sunday afternoon, killing one person and wounding four others before being killed by a security staff member, the city's police chief said."

Then you have to wonder... Who started giving guns to the mega church rent-a-cops? According to Rev. Brady Boyd, senior pastor of New Life Church, the church had a security plan in place.

"I'm proud of the way our team responded," he said. "Many, many lives were saved because of the quick action of some committed volunteers at our church."

Oh wait, they were not rent-a-cops, they were "committed volunteers"? Now I'm really confused. But even more confusing is this quote further down in the article on CNN:

"The church was founded by the Rev. Ted Haggard, an evangelical Christian leader who was ousted in 2006 after allegations that he had been a client of a male prostitute from whom he had purchased drugs. Haggard admitted to undisclosed "sexual immorality" and called himself "a deceiver and a liar" in a letter to the congregation."

Sweet. Now things have come full circle. What will the Church come up with next? A coloring book for how to purchase a gun?
