the ultimate slap in the face of two-faceness

The evil mockers who call themselves the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence had the gall to take Communion and then claim righteous indignation when they were called on it. They claimed in a press release to live "as nuns," who hold to their vows, (and incase you didn't get it from the photo these are guys)
contrary to the spin of right-wing fanatics, that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence do not "mock nuns" but live "as nuns," taking vows that affirm the traditional compassionate and justice-seeking ministries of religious women, extending their reach beyond the convent walls to those most in need.
And were therefore within their rights to walk into church in their full nun-mocking outfits and makeup to take communion.
We are dismayed that a moment of genuine communion during sacred worship is being twisted for political gain by the forces of hatred and dissension. — Sister Edith Myflesh, Current Abbess of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Inc.

And has the ultimate slap in the face of two-faceness comes this statement,
In keeping with our vows to expiate stigmatic guilt and promulgate universal joy, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence call on all people of good faith to oppose those who would desecrate the sanctity of a church and defile a moment of true communion for cheap political gain. In a world wracked by violence and fear, we have no time for such lies and will continue to serve our community by boldly proclaiming that joy is more powerful than shame.

Note: I will not link to these fools, look it up yourselves.
