If you go down to the bank today…

…you’re sure for a big surprise.

The heading my esteemed commenter gave this is “From the ‘You Couldn't Make Up This Headline If You Tried’ department ” and there’s nothing even I can add to improve it:

Akinola Decries Use of Female Bankers to Attract Deposits

"Many commercial banks today have turned their single female employees to corporate and official prostitutes, while married ones have become adulterous."


Read it for yourself (the link takes ages to open) and you’ll understand why Mrs. Minns gets upset when her husband says “I’ve just got to drop by the bank on my way home”.

And to think the best thing I’ve ever been able to get from my bank is an letter complaining I’d exceeded my credit card limit and a few pens I stole when nobody was looking…

I’m Father Christian and I teach the Bible.

Simply breathtaking! I lost my breath waiting for the link to open.

When one makes a deposit one needs to be aware of the dividends.

This is why they used to give toasters as give-aways for opening a new bank account. See how far we have fallen? OR rather, female bankers have allegedly fallen.

Yes Lynn: I'd never be one to question Big Pete's side of a story, but wouldn't it be interesting to hear what the female bankers think of their fearless leader's opinion?

And when they've all been replaced by men (at which point I've no doubt they & their families will be henceforth supported by the Church) will the little Martyn and his boss be any happy with what the men offer prospective depositors?

I'm disappointed in you, Fr Christian. I thought every true Bible-believing Anglican knew that taking pens from the bank isn't stealing. It's spoiling the Egyptians.

The Rev. Dr. Christian Troll said...

You're quite correct my child, but calling it stealing I feel more closely united with the spiritual essence of the GAFCON movement.

Is this sperm banks (the bank where you make a deposit and loose interest) he's talking about?

At least we can be fairly sure that this was not one of 'Bp.' Minns ghost writing activities.

FWIW
