Excitement at Roger Stadium

Man arrested in protest at L.A. cathedral

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man was arrested Sunday after he handcuffed himself to Cardinal Roger Mahony's chair during a service to protest the church's handling of allegedly abusive priests.

Several thousand people were attending Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels when James Robertson walked toward the altar and handcuffed himself to the chair, police said.

Mahony, who was delivering the homily about 15 feet away, continued with the service. Robertson did not speak with Mahony.

Haugen-Haas
You've have heard such songs a "Gather Us In" by Marty Haugen and "Blest Are They" by David Haas that are so sickly sweet that you were sure you gained a couple of pounds listening to them in your church. So sweet that you wish they were a flavor of ice cream. Well wish no more because Marty Haugen and David Haas have teamed together to do to your taste buds what they have done to your ear drums. All of are flavors include nuts in fact just like the appreciators of modern liturgical music it is chock full of nuts.

Introducing Haugen-Haas Ice Cream!

Dissimint

Will dialogue with your taste buds and argue with you all the way down your throat. The cool taste of Dissimint will cause you to want to sign petitions and protest outside your local church. So rebel against against the flavors of dogmatic ice cream makers who think that flavors should taste like they traditionally did.

Note: Your hair turning gray is not a side effect of Dissimint but an aid to help you fit in with other Dissimint eaters.

Banana Schism Split

Nothing says split like a schism so like thousands of others before you why not banana split off yourself. Why should your mouth answer to an old man in Rome? Martin Luther once remarked, “Every man is born with a Pope in his belly.” so why not feed your inner pope with the finest schismatic ice cream? Whether you are a progressive or a sede vacantist you will love the sweet taste of schism.

Easter Sundae

For Easter Sundae Christians that only go to church once or twice a year. The perfect ice cream for the uncommitted ice cream eater that grew up in an ice cream eating household and doesn't want to totally break with the tradition.

Iconoclast Vanilla

Stark white ice cream just like the interior of many modern churches. No frills nothing special just plain vanilla ice cream. Nothing added - no miniature chunks of statue shaped chocolates - just one hundred percent pure watered down white ice cream.

Heretical Caramel Cone

Chunks of gnostic body hating chocolates and new age crystal sugar pieces combined to be doctrinally impure for those with a palette that rejects orthodoxy and craves doctrines to satisfy both their itching ears and tummy!

Liturgical Dancers Licorice

Imagine the flavor of liturgical dancers prancing around your tongue with whips of licorice pompoms. Just like your worship experience your ice cream experience should be all about you. So dive in with a flavor that is just

Regarding the so-called "Cathedra": If only it actually were the electric chair that it so eerily resembles.

Yes, Haugen-Haas Ice Cream is funny, and we should give credit where credit is due.
