“...he used to say that the preachers make up that stuff out of their own heads. When you croak, he said, the grass grows on your grave, and that’s all.” The old man laughed. “He was a desperate man.”
Marching as to war,

Forward into battle
See his cassocks go!

If theyre made of proper silk, theres no polyester. Just saying.
They have much bigger problems
Namely MUSLIM INVADERS
Henry the beheaded would be so proud!
