Hey High Priestess,   :D

question:  shouldn't Kerry be posting his Brokeback Prayer over on the actual Brokeback Cult thread?

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,3653.0/all.html

Isn't this here thread just for the comments???  I'm just sayin'......

J

No, Jane, this is the place for any new stuff, including comments.  I decided to limit the the Cult thread to material originally posted over at imdb.  As I (slowly) add on to it, the absence of new comments helps keep it more readable.  :)

So any new items of a devotional nature can go right here.   Thanks for askin'. 8)

Way to go Kerry!!!   I am a big fan of Meryl and her Brokeback Cult, and I am very glad to see another prayer for Our Boys.  I am glad you found this thread fer sure!  Thanks for posting your prayer Kerry.   :-*

I don't post much anymore, but I do get around, maybe we will meet someday in the new Chat Room, or even better - at the Performance Thread!  As a matter of fact, all of Meryl's blessings have found a spot in the PT early on, so if another spot opens up and invites another prayer will you come over and post it some day?  I can let you know when the right time comes....
Jane


I would be very honoured to do that, Jane. I'll do so as soon as I get the go-ahead from you.

I posted my Lord's Brokeback Prayer over at David925's blog. In response, David wrote this Hail Mary Jack & Ennis:

Hail Ennis and Jack, full of cuteness
Brokeback Mountain is with you.
Blessed are you both among all cowboys
And blessed are those nights in the tent, up on the QT.
Sexy Ennis and Jack, Brothers to all gay men,
Remember the rest of us, now and the next time you're up on Brokeback.


Thought you'd like to see it.  :)

That's great---flirty and respectful at the same time.   I love it!   8)

I would like to propose setting aside some time at the Alberta gathering to carry out some of the rituals.

Truman and Lynne, I would love to have a Cult evening one of those nights in Alberta.  I'd welcome ideas on what to do, striking a balance between the serious and humorous aspects of our Cult.  8)

That's a most valid point you're making there, Meryl. When I wrote my Brokeback Prayer, I meant it to be taken very seriously - reverently, in fact. However, when I posted it over at David's blog (I wanted to share it with the nice folks over there), David's reaction was to wail with laughter LOL. I think he thought I was satirising the Lord's Prayer (I wasn't LOL). Turned out that David had some pretty horrendous experiences with the Catholic education system whilst growing up, and was probably somewhat bemused by a prayer (first time?) being posted at his blog. I ended-up laughing along with David. I could appreciate where he was coming from. As I said to him in a pm, "Laughter is always better than tears."

However, having said that, my Brokeback Prayer is, for me, a very serious aspect of the Cult. In fact, I carry a copy of it in my wallet.

I have a terrible confession to make. As an indication of how long it's been since last I recited the Lord's Prayer, I went and left two lines out of the previously posted version. Here's the revised, corrected version:

Our Brokeback
Which art in Wyoming
Hallowed be thine Icy Peaks
Thy Snow-Melt come
Thy will be done on Grand Teton
As it was in the Big Horn Mountains
Give us this day our daily Beans
And forgive us our four years in the Wilderness
As we forgive those who bear tire-irons against us
And lead us not into the Grieving Plain
But deliver us from Childress and Riverton
For thine is the Love between Cowboys
The Love between sweet Jack and Ennis
For ever and ever
Yee-Haw


Lots of Love,

Kerry

I can't believe I didn't catch that, Kerry!  Nice addition - I like it even better now!
