The Diocese of Orange Celebrates the Holidays

Yes, that really is an EME, i.e., an "Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist". The Roman Catholic blog reports the full story here. The happy clamjamfrey illustrated above is in our own beloved Diocese of Orange, where kneeling at the Agnus Dei is a mortal sin and will get you expelled from the parish council, the parish, and, indeed, the diocese. And where dressing up as a Halloween devil to distribute Holy Communion will get you. . . .well, nothing yet. No doubt the wheels of episcopal justice are being set in motion at this very minute. No doubt.

ADDENDUM: Some brave soul even made a short video of this, uh, "event". It's on Youtube here.
