Angels forced to use public transport

Angels exist but do not have wings and are more like shards of light, at least according to a top Catholic Church "angelologist" who says the heavenly beings are now back in vogue thanks to New Age religions.

Anyone here ever heard of an "angelologist"? I mean seriously guys, an angelologist???

The widely-published Catholic clergyman is also a "demonologist" and says angels are more needed than ever because increasing secularisation and materialism in society have left an "open door" for the devil.

"There is a lot more interference from diabolical forces. That is why you see queues of people outside the exorcists' offices in churches," he said.

Wonder who they'll petition to repaint the Sistine Chapel? Maybe Elias Garcia Martinez could save the day!
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

All the angel images I have seen has a human in the front with bird wings on the back but no structural connection to the chest muscles like real birds. Also Birds are avian because unlike mammals, they come from the egg which then puts them in the dinosaur era which the bible seems to not mention.

Exorcism office?

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.

Rrrrriiinnnggg!  Mind the doors please.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

Wow. I wish I was an accredited expert in a field which amounts to baloney. Such safety in job retention.

It isn't that hard to get a PHD in Theology.
