C of E college apologises for students' attempt to 'queer evening prayer'

quote [ Westcott House in Cambridge says LGBT service liturgy that referred to God as ‘the Duchess’ was hugely regrettable ]

I mean, I'm no Christian, but how was this ever not going to be seen as bad taste?
Still, points for trying I suppose.

And regarding Polari, a repost of this video from (I think) old SE:

"The college hoped “to make a creative contribution to setting a different tone for the debate on human sexuality in the church. But this was not it,” he said."

Oh that's kind of nice...

"A prayer referred to the “Fantabulosa fairy” and ended: “Praise ye the Duchess. The Duchess’s name be praised.” Psalm 19 was reworded to refer to “O Duchess, my butchness”."

What the fuck? It's like getting the keys to borrow a car and instantly driving it into a 7-11.
