In a surprise olive branch from the Church of England, Doctor Rowan Williams this morning announced that the church would support marriage between two men as long as one of them ‘looked like a bird.’
‘We’ve just been on a church Jolly for the top brass and we ended up at the lady boys of Bangkok show. I didn’t even know they were men for the first half of the show. Afterwards in the pub, we all agreed that if they could fool us, then they would probably fool God as well.’
‘We don’t want people taking the piss though,’ Dr Williams added. ‘They’ll have to look the part. If we end up having brides with big hairy beards and no makeup getting married in church, God will be furious with us.’
It’s thought that the Church of Scotland will be holding off from any such compromise until their own trip to see the Bangkok lady boys later in the week.
