New Satire Pokes Light Fun at Catholics and Culture

The Minnesota based theologian and blog author named "The Ironic Catholic" has published Felon Blames 1970s Church Architecture for Life of Sin: The Ironic Catholic News, Vol. I,, an affectionate satire on Catholics meeting American culture.

 
PRLog - Jun. 14, 2011 - Jun 14, 2011 – Winona, MN.  The Minnesota based theologian and blog author named "The Ironic Catholic" has published Felon Blames 1970s Church Architecture for Life of Sin: The Ironic Catholic News, Vol. I, an affectionate satire that pokes fun at human foibles as the world of Catholicism meets  American culture.  

The e-book is comprised of parodies of news stories from the popular comic website.  In the style of The Onion, Stephen Colbert, and occasionally Jonathan Swift, the writer of "The Ironic Catholic" website offers mild satirical takes on the world of Catholic news, focusing on the rich vein of human foibles in living the life of faith. The fake news stories ("Attendees of Flannery O'Connor Conference Meet Dire End," "Tired Mother Announces 'Come and See' Weekend," "Re-gifting Chia Pets Not Considered Lenten Sacrifice," etc.) both entertain and teach what it means to be a faithful Catholic in a confused world with a light touch.

"At a difficult time in the Church and in our economic life, humor can be a healthy release," says the mystery author.  "It's not an escape but a way to laugh at  ourselves and remember that humor may be our second greatest strength."

The e-book may be purchased via Amazon (http://www.amazon.com) or Smashwords (http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/ironiccatholic) .  

The Ironic Catholic is a systematic theologian teaching at a small Catholic university in the upper Midwest.  Her previous book is Dear Communion of Saints: amusingly apt advice for foolish Christians. She is a married mother of four and has been writing parody and light satire under the pen name "The Ironic Catholic" for five years at http://www.ironiccatholic.com .
