"The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, today responded to efforts by the American members of the Anglican Communion to elect an openly gay bishop by declaring the Episcopal Church of the United States of America to be in schism with the Church of England and ordering its members to be arrested and burnt.
'The old sweetie's really got a bee in his mitre over this one,' said Canon Douglas F.X. Ramsbottom, a Lambeth Palace spokesperson. 'It's not so much the gay thing, I mean we are British clergy, after all; it's the power thing...'" (read on at DeadBrain).
More like this and I could consider tailoring a Humo[u]rFeed into this place.
For now, most of the offerings are like those aggregators.

Mel Gibson's latest film as director will be in Aramaic, Hebrew and Latin.
'The Passion', due for release next year according to the iMDB, details "the final hours and crucifixion of Jesus Christ". It's just had a highly selective screening.
"The star has claimed the 'Holy Ghost was working through me on this film, and I was just directing traffic. I hope the film has the power to evangelise.' But a panel of three Jewish and six Catholic scholars, who have studied a draft script, say the film is anti-semitic and theologically inaccurate, portraying Jews as bloodthirsty and vengeful and reviving the worst traditions of the passion plays which contributed to deadly attacks against Jews over the centuries."
A story yesterday in the Guardian is being hotly pursued (Morons.org).
I'm not sure all this makes Mel a "moron", but did you know he's a fundamentalist?

"...Gone are the days when we admired scenes from Hollywood, craved to rub shoulders with celebrities and even be part of a music award ceremony similar to the American Grammy's.
This excellent initiative (via 'allAfrica') takes that "when nobody else will do it for you ..." stance.
We are not talking about the upcoming red carpet Miss Uganda event. Something else is knocking at the door. On October 4, Uganda will witness the very first national music award ceremony.
Dubbed the Pearl of Africa Music (PAM) Awards, the event will see our local artistes from 23 categories win among other things, a recording contract as well as a slot into the African Kora Awards later in the year (...)
The categories include hip-hop, contemporary, Gospel, cultural, mataali, kadongo kamu, and ragga, R&B and live band. Others are best female and male artiste as well as audio producer, video and lifetime achievement award."
South Africa's Channel 'O' will film the event.
