On the evils of bad poetry

Okay, so Landover Baptist Church has long been a beacon of hope for we the fallen and/or lapsed who seek to abandon our current flawed faiths in favor of something a little more judgmental. General J.C. Christian, Patriot has been kind enough to warn us of a group attacking the good works that Landover does. But Jim Carlson of Objective: Christian Ministries warns his flock of potential impostors writing comment-thread naughtiness in his name:
Any message you read claiming to be from Jim Carlson or any other OBJECTIVE: Ministries member that contains vulgarities, sexual innuendo, bad poetry, or other un-Christian sentiments is to be considered a FRAUD and ignored. [Emphasis mine]
Yes, of course. God forbid Our holy name should be attached to limericks with no perceptible meter. Or worse - haiku.

Note: Could this all be an elaborate parody? Jesus, God, I hope so. The question is, though: Can we take that chance?

Um, sadly, no? Fortunately, that means I get to be a goon! I've never been a goon before!

I think this guy should hunt down the terr'ists who surgically removed his sense of satire.
