What's YOUR church?

"The Vatican is a palace of gossipy eunuchs afloat on a sea of brilliant bitchery."

Written as fact, but best read as (bitter, deluded) fiction, this is my most favorite-ist line from John Cornwell's "A Thief in the Night: The Mysterious Death of Pope John Paul I". True or not, I don't care - I just love the poetic imagery and the way it sounds rolling off the tongue...
