Instructions Bishops have to issue nowadays

With his keen sense of the absurd, Jeff Miller, the Curt Jester has picked up on an instruction that Archbishop Cordileone has had to issue to the new parish priest at Most Holy Redeemer Parish in San Francisco. (See: Sentences that only make sense in context) As the priest put it:
I am the new pastor. There is a new archbishop. The archdiocese told me straight out, ‘No drag queens.’
Jeff suggests that another pertinent instruction might be "No sex toy bingo", just to make things clear, since that has also happened in the parish.

Bishops used to issue detailed instructions about domestic arrangements for housekeepers, the proper care of tabernacles, and the requirement for the curate to have his own telephone. I hope that those concerns are not forgotten amid the newer imperatives of forbidding drag queens and sex toy bingo.
