The Body of Christ could use some Ex Lax

I think this could apply to some Anglican churches (and other groups) as well. From the Enlightened Catholicism blog, some inspiring use of metaphor:

Roman Catholicism really is showing the signs of a collective organism which is being poisoned by it's own waste products.  The Vatican bureaucracy with it's emphasis on sacred tradition and creeping infallibility is serving as a cork backing up the whole system.  Living systems die when they can't eliminate their waste products.  The Body of Christ needs either a good dose of Ex Lax or the cork removed.  The sixty four million dollar question is who is going to serve as the proctologist?
