We have already seen strange church ads in Vienna-Marihilf. But this seems to be the latest clerical trend: I took the picture of this ad in Vienna-Hütteldorf.

Bill board. (novala)

It says "Cloisters and monasteries: Official sponsor of retreat and meditation." Signed by "the catholic orders. www.herrgottnocheinmal.at". Herrgott noch einmal" is equivalent to the exclamation "Jesus Christ!".

What’s next? Monks dancing in the Christopher Street Parades?
