An Interview with a Bishop
The bishop said the priests were fine by a country mile,
They only had slight symptoms of being pedophile,
Though Catholics may all be as mad as a hatter,
Only holy mother church would deal with this matter.
Pompous predatory priests are part of the priesthood,
Catholics will bow and believe and behave; is this understood?
What do you expect of men who are given limitless respect?
And in return are expected to act like saints with no normal sex?
Itís only a few fags and fairies came and joined the priests,
I Ďm overwrought they were caught; maybe this should cease,
So I transferred them here and there for about twenty years,
Caring for the Church was central; I made the problem disappear.
I canít understand what all the queer commotion is about,
You canít expect me to kick these fairy faithful priests out!
We have great difficulty finding pious priest right now,
And then thereís that requirement about the chastity vow.
