A really good idea...

If you been following the goings-on in the Episcopal Church at all, you'll have noticed there are a lot of lawsuits flying around. Almost every single one of these lawsuits has to do with suing for property. A parish or a diocese finally realizes that the Episcopal Church no longer has what they would consider to be a traditional understanding of the Christian faith, so they want to leave. It's perfectly normal, when you're leaving someplace, to take what's yours, especially since those who are doing the leaving are the ones who paid for the buildings, or at least their parents and grandparents did. Those remaining in the Episcopal Church are saying, "Hold on. Wait a minute. Leave if you want to, but you're not taking anything with you." Naturally, each side thinks it has the law on its side.

I've got the answer! Here's exactly what the losing side needs... the "inflatable church!"

I'm serious. You can actually rent or purchase it at this website, where it's described in some detail:

"The attention to detail is heavenly complete with plastic 'stained glass' windows and airbrush artwork which replicates the traditional church. Inside it has an inflatable organ, altar, pulpit, pews, candles and a gold cross. Even the doors are flanked by air-filled angels."

Seems like it's all there except for the inflatable clergyperson. I won't attempt any jokes about preachers and hot air. And another good thing: if you're on the winning side of the lawsuit, you can add insult to injury by letting the air out of the competition.
