    The church of Scientology doesn't have bishoprics.

    But they have a lot of ED-pricks.

    At the time, many thought Swift wasn't joking.

    The Irish and their supporters in England were outrage.

    But it is a great piece of satire and literature.

    Yah, Swift is amazing. I think that a lot of people think Gulliver's Travels is for kids. But it's not. I think that, over time, some people have really missed out on his wit and wisdom.

    You take what you see. For most people its the cute little lilliputians tying up the great big gulliver. They prefer to overlook the arguments over the folly of minor disputes leading to war and are incapable of seeing the irony of the inhumanity of the yahoos.

    Gotta admit though I've always admired life in the cloud city.
