As reported in an earlier newscast by C.N.N.:
Following his journey to the Middle East at the beginning of this year,
His Grace, Setrag, Armenian Archbishop of Highbury & Islington
is pleased to report that he is in possession of irrefutable evidence, gathered in bona fide documents, that Jesus wasn’t just an ordinary chap. It has been proved conclusively that He was hyphenated.
Accordingly, His Grace has ordered that Jesus will no longer be referred to in the
Archdiocese of Highbury & Islington, as just plain Jesus,
but by His full name:
In view of this momentous news, His Grace will be delivering a Paper at a Specially Convened Ecumenical Council, to which will be invited all interested Heads of the Appropriate Religious Groups.
R.S.V.P. 17th June
Seating is limited and the caterers have to be informed concerning numbers.
(Our Muslim Friends have, as yet, not responded, but in view of the ecumenical nature of the lecture, we are hoping that they will turn up eventually. As an inducement, the vol-au-vents and samosas will be Halal and any Hindus, who are attending as observers, are assured that the meat will probably be lamb or chicken or pork or whatever those chaps eat... unless they are vegetarians. If that were to be the case, Mumbai Cash-and-Carry is just around the corner in Krishna Terrace, so self-caterers are assured that they will not go hungry)
N.B. In appreciation for his selfless efforts in this field, it is rumoured that His Grace, Archbishop Setrag, is to be considered for Canonisation,
and in anticipation of same, the Paper:
“Jesus Christ-God – Not Just an Ordinary Bloke”
will be published on the Archbishop’s birthday (19th June).
All this will lead hopefully to this day becoming the official
Saint’s Day of
Saint Setrag – Patron Saint of The Posh.
