    I do wish there were a picture of this. In the void, my mind’s eye is seeing it as though it were in an episode of South Park. And I don’t watch South Park.

  2. It’s The Bishop!

  3. DC Loser says:

    Oh, great. Not just a religious extremist, but an ARMED religious extremist. And he’s one of those Mormon cultists, too. This guy needs to be locked up for the public safety.

  9. Tyrell says:

    Locked up, for what? Helping save an innocent person who was being attacked by a thug? He should get some kind of medal and be honored!!

  10. Franklin says:

    @Tyrell: Someone accused me the other day of having a broken sense of humor. I pass the honor onto you. (Or … at least I *think* Jenos was joking.)

    @Tyrell: Sorry, I was echoing the sentiments of quite a few of the regular commentariat here. So yeah, I was being facetious.

  12. Donald Sensing says:

    Sorry, this isn’t news. Now, if it had been a Methodist samurai-sword-wielding bishop, that would be news!
