The Brokeback Cult: The New Testament
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:17:02 am »
In the thread titled "The Brokeback Cult" I am going to be posting, in some sort of semi-organized manner, some of the wisdom and humor found in our original thread started March 1, 2006, at the IMDb message board for Brokeback Mountain.

Fellow Brokies, please feel free to use this thread to comment on that material, and if you feel moved to add to the sacred texts, in the blessed words of Ma Twist, "You are welcome...if you want."  8)

YEEHAW

Dear High Priestess Meryl,

I already just sent you a PM about this, and you must a got those messages I left at your place...

Now I finally know where the High Priestess sprang from....  and to think that this prophet was relegated to third string status on the Performance Thread!!   I am so ashamed!   :'(

OK, now seriously, I love the companion thread to this one, Brokeback Mountain Cult.  ;D  May I always be worthy of bieng in its presence.  Jack bless you for bringing this Sacred Thread from TOB back to life again!!

Brokies at BetterMost will bless you for having shared this with them.  Thank you High Priestess!

Jane

Here's a new text I wrote that appears on Page 10 of the Performance Thread:

A BROKEBACK BLESSING

For the Light of Heath
For the Grace of Jake
For the Silence of Ang

We thank you, Lord

For the Soul of Ennis
For the Spirit of Jack
For the Vision of Annie

We thank you, Lord

For in the Light of Heath there is knowledge of Self
In the Grace of Jake there is Joy
Let the Silence of Ang be a sounding bell to
Destroy
Employ
Enjoy...

For the Strength of the Earth
For the Breath of the Wind
For the Spark of the Fire

We thank you, Lord

For the Light of Heath
For the Grace of Jake
For the Silence of Ang

We thank you, thank you, Lord

YEEHAW

This prayer appeared in the Dress Rehearsal thread that preceded the Performance Thread:

The Brokie’s Prayer

Our Boys, who met on Brokeback, honored be your names. 
Your story done, your souls be one in heaven, as they were on Brokeback. 
Grant us this day our friendly posts, 
And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespassed against you. 
And lead us not into vexation, but deliver us from hatred.
For yours was the struggle, and the union, and the triumph, forever and ever. 

Yeehaw

One more contribution from the Performance Thread:

Chant

East is the Wind, is the gold sun rising; eagle flying free sees the open door

South is the Fire, is the red noon blazing; wolf upon the ledge feels what came before

West is the Water, is the blue dusk falling; brown bear in his cave looks to what will be

North is the Earth, is the black night cloaking; elk in forest deep knows the mystery


Brokeback is the Wind, is the Fire glowing,  Brokeback is the Water, is the Earth made strong

Hearts that are joined upon the Sacred Mountain must forever dance to its ancient song.

Yeehaw

Yeehaw indeed.  Very excellent idea meryl !!  As an aside, it looks like the old cult thread from imdb has found its way into the archives.  http://www.geocities.com/bbmarchive/

You have to scroll down to the Boards Addiction section of the menu.  But, there it is! 

By the way...
The archive is looking mighty fine these days.

Sister, you are welcome!  :-*  (Thanks for the nice comment, too)

Thanks, Amanda.  I've got the link in the first post of the Cult thread, too.  But as you can see from the archived thread, it's pretty confusing to read, thus my attempts at organizing and editing.  :P

OK, this line makes me want to cry. But in a good way. I guess. ...  :'(
