When the Going Gets Weird

The Weird Turn Pro.

The words of the immortal Hunter S. Thompson are especially appropriate in the aftermath of the aptly named "Saturday Morning Massacre."

So now that the quondam Bishop of San Joaquin has fired 6 out of the 8 members of the standing committee, what next? Rumor has it that the six contain all four clergy members. Since Father Snell did NOT vote at convention (perhaps as a function of his position on the dais) has he all along reserved the option of determining the relative verdancy of the pasture involved? It's time for him to put his money where his mouth should be.

Given this circumstance, and the dubious legality of this action, and the fact that it only takes a single member of the standing committee to call a special convention, one wonders if indeed the ousted members of the Standing Committee will take their apparent dismissal with equanimity. If I were them, I would immediately call a convention.

As Grendel would say, Do It Now!
