Kung's Bane Week 12

Archbishop Charles "Boom boom" Chaput [61 ]

For those of you who have become discouraged by Kung's Bane's rise in power, fear not. Now is the time to slam Chaput. His enemies have got to do it before they can get to know him. Before he works his Christlike ways on the citizens of Philadelphia and makes them all fall in love with him, they need to attack. I don't blame them and I welcome the points. After September 8th, it should die down pretty quickly.

  1. 79 points total. I had to take off the 3 pt for Chaput on the Steubenville event, because that had already been cited in Week 9. Can't give you double credit.

    Another great week though!
