Anglo-Catholic Ninja Weapons and Gear: Part 2 March 21, 2007

Posted by Ninja Clement in General.


From Wikipedia – the Ninja weapon par exellence

“The Kusari gama is a traditional Japanese weapon that consists of kama (the Japanese equivalent of a sickle) on a metal chain with a heavy iron weight at the end… Attacking with the weapon usually entailed swinging the weighted chain in a large circle over one’s head, and then whipping it forward to entangle an opponent’s spear, sword, or other weapon, or immobilizing his arms or legs. This allows the kusari-gama user to easily rush forward and strike with the sickle…” 

silver-thurible.jpgThe Anglo-Catholic Ninja weapon par exellence:

“A thurible is a metal censer suspended from chains, in which incense is burned during worship services. It is used in the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Old Catholic, and some Lutheran and other churches… The workings of a thurible are quite simple. Heated charcoal is inside the actual metal censer. Incense, sometimes of many different varieties is placed upon the charcoal. This may be done several times during the service as the incense burns quite quickly. Once the incense has been placed on the charcoal the thurible is then closed and used for censing… 

If you ask me, while both weapons are pretty deadly, the thurible has an added advantage over the kusari gama – if you can’t swing the thurible properly, its guaranteed that the heavenly incense smoke will take out your opponent instead. Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus! Smell the Real Ultimate Anglo-Catholic Power!

I’m a Lutheran in the US, and am new to a “high church.” I was looking up what a thurible was and came across this. It is hilarious! Nice job

A person who has been struck by a thurible is, quite reasonably, likely to be incensed.

No match for the Presbyterian stool-wielding Jenny Geddes! One toss at your Romanizing biretta-topped head, and your thurible-swinging priest is done.
