Amen.

Guest Commentary by Hugh McCann

Transubstantiation: Romish & icky
There appear to be a host of anti-papist articles in the 39. To wit:

6 ~ Apocrypha ain't canon.
10 ~ Man's total depravity.
11 ~ Sola Fides, Baby!
12,13,14 ~ "NOT of works, lest any man should boast."
15 ~ Mary & Co. not without sin.
17 ~ Ouch!
18 ~ Whither triumphant church intercession?
20 ~ Church subservient to Writ.
21 ~ Councils may and have erred.
22 ~ "The Romish doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, worshipping and adoration as well of Images as of Relics, and also Invocation of Saint, is a fond thing vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scripture; but rather repugnant to the word of God."
24 ~ If Latin can't be understanded of the people, don't use it!
25 ~ TWO sacraments (count 'em: 1, 2), not 7; the 5 are of "corrupt following of the Apostles." And don't worship the cookie!
28 ~ Transub: "Repugnant, overthroweth, superstition."
30 ~ Let my people drink!
31 ~ Jesus paid it all; Masses "are blasphemous fables and dangerous deceits."
32 ~ Let my clergy marry!
34 ~ Some traditions are flexible.

As I recall the early proponents of these paid with their lives...

The Third Sunday after Trinity.
The Collect.
O LORD, we beseech thee mercifully to hear us; and grant that we, to whom thou hast given an hearty desire to pray, may by thy mighty aid be defended and comforted in all dangers and adversities; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Good to have some satire to bring comic relief as we chat with the revisionists (= conservatives). Even they don't get it.
