antidisestablishmentarianism award


The Church of England Synod voted the other day to ban priests from belonging to the british national party.

I would hate to think that any would be able to reconcile their christianity with an organisation predicated on prejudice, however that aside it does represent the involvement of the Church in secular politics.

For which they receive the antidisestablishmentarianism award.

I wonder if there's an award for using the English language's longest word properly?

Congratulations, you win my Word Award for today!

Seriously: once I learned of this word - probably playing a dictionary game in elementary school - I loved it. Very cool for being so long, yet it's all so logical and easy to spell since it's simple chunks put together. It's ironically fun having a logically-constructed word also deal with religion and politics, too.
