Parody accounts are not often funny, but I found one that is.
The other day, an account briefly appeared on Twitter imitating the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ ghastly official account. It looked so close to the original that people got mixed up, which isn’t okay, so Twitter deleted it. But then they were back within 24 hours with a new page, clearly announcing itself as a parody, and this one is hilarious.
Throughout the day yesterday and today, they’ve tweeted the most wickedly funny things.
Just finding out about Fr Longenecker and wtf someone with authority should do something. Shall we send it to committee?
Dear young people of the Church! We know you’re hurting, but we want you to know we have a bishop with a blog and a YouTube channel! Like and subscribe so you won’t be beige!
Bishop Strickland just announced that his favorite part about the upcoming Tyler Compound is there will be no poor people, no gays, no immigrants, no gypsies, no Jews!
Ope sorry we were reading from the wrong white supremacist’s wish list here. Will update with Bishop Stricklands preferred demographics shortly.
For those of you who have cried tears of hurt because of the things we have taught, done, and failed to do, we repent. Please forgive us if and when you are able. Though we understand if you cannot. We are so, so sorry.
