I just wanted to say that as an Irish Catholic, I'm NOT offended by this episode.
(I've already said above) I find it a really interesting story line.
The first time I watched the pope getting closer and closer to the statue's ass tho, I was smiling and cringing!!! that bit definitely is cringworthy. but in a funny way.
Fave ep: ESM Season 12,Sec fave: Butterballs Season 16
Having had experience with the whole DUI thing and court-ordered AA myself, Ican definately affirm that it's philosophy is not secular and is highly extremist. In many ways, AA is very much like cult! (I've never been addicted to alcohol, and now I can enjoy a single glass of wine with my dinner.)
Also, I like how you poked fun at how a few people in our society (i.e. MADD) go overboard on the issue through Mr./Mrs. Garrisson's comments.
Finally, I don't think the Bloody Mary was unmerited; on the contrary, it is a good counter-statement to dubious doctrine and practice. Since the High Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church has elevated Mary almost to the level of Jeshua. (A great illustration of this mariolotry is how the Eastern Orthodox Church calls August 15th the "Dormition of the Virgin," while the Roman Church made it the "Assumption of the Virgin.")
