this is aNOTHER bizarre story for the Young Pioneer Press. Why report on some local thing from ANOTHER CITY? C'mon YPP, get it together.
Further, what's wrong with this bishop? Does he have any sense?

Sounds to me like he has a sense of humor...rates right up there with common sense (that many people seem to lack these days).

Makes no sense at all. The drop kick hasnt been used since 1932. What was he thinking?

Do bishops were the extravagant gowns and hats and costumes that the other self important church "elite" (oxymoron) wear? I don't understand why religious people aren't more of a laughing stock.

I love it! Nothing distasteful about the song, and it shows a human side with a sense of humor for sure.

Drop kick me Jesus through the goal posts of life
End over end neither left nor to right
Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights
Drop kick me Jesus through the goal posts of life.

Make me, oh make me, Lord more than I am
Make me a piece in your master game plan
Free from the earthly tempestion below
I’ve got the will, Lord if you’ve got the toe.

Take all the brothers who’ve gone on before
And all of the sisters who’ve knocked on your door
All the departed dear loved ones of mine
Stick’em up front in the offensive line.

Drop kick me Jesus through the goal posts of life
End over end neither left nor to right
Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights
Drop kick me Jesus through the goal posts of life.

Yeah, Drop kick me Jesus through the goal posts of life

I don't care if it rains or freezes,
'long as I got my plastic Jesus
sitting on the dashboard of my car.
Plastic Jesus he's so neat
he's got magnet on his feet,
sitting on the dashboard of my car.
