The Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler of an Iron Age cult which operates near my home has vowed to perform a meaningless ritual to make Teh Icky Gays go away.
Inexplicably this has generated headlines all over the country.
From the Chicago Tribune:
Springfield bishop to perform 'exorcism' on day same-sex marriage becomes lawIn the Year of Our Lord 2013, the local Catholic emissary of the Prince of Peace has scheduled a public exorcism just to remind gays how very much he hates them.

Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield said he will offer prayers for “exorcism in reparation for the sin of same-sex marriage” at the same time Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign the same-sex marriage bill next week.
Paprocki said he will offer the prayers intended to cast out evil at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in the state’s capital Wednesday.
“It is scandalous that so many Catholic politicians are responsible for enabling the passage of this legislation and even twisting the words of the pope to rationalize their actions despite the clear teaching of the church,” Paprocki said in a statement.
Yeah. I'm sure that'll do the trick.
