Oh, my goodness, you were so quick, Patricia and Terry. This is the one I was thinking of. Thank you, both. That search brought back some pleasant memories.

There was also a series called Father Ted that was similar to what you described. It was particularly irreverent.

There was a series called "Yes, Minister" but it was political satire.

Patricia, funny. 

I could swear there was a BBC series entitled "Yes, Father" I looked, using all kinds of keywords and can find no evidence of them. The old priest was short and pudgy, and the young priest was naive and innocent. No sign of them can I find. Did I just fabricate them?

The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, "It was a good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater seats. It worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills first now."

The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, "And you told me adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock'n'roll gospel choir. Now our services are consistently packed to the
balcony."

"Thank you, Father," answered the young priest. "I am pleased that you are open to the new ideas of youth."

"All of these ideas have been well and good," said the elderly priest, "but I'm afraid you've gone too far with the drive-thru confessional."

"But, Father," protested the young priest, "my confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since I began that!"

"Yes," replied the elderly priest, "and I appreciate that.

But the flashing neon sign, 'Toot 'n Tell or Go to Hell' cannot stay on the church roof.

The strongman at a circus squeezed the juice from a lemon between his hands. He then said to the audience, "I will offer $200 to anyone in the audience who can squeeze another drop from this lemon.

 

A thin scholarly looking woman came forward, picked up the lemon, strained hard and managed to get a drop. The strongman was amazed. He paid the woman and asked, "What is the secret of your strength?"

 

"Practice," the woman answered. "I was the treasurer of a Church for thirty-two years!

BTW, if you're looking for laughs, mixed in with some solid weirdness, you can join the Facebook group "Christians Against Dinosaurs."

Hell, they got Aron Ra.  He interviewed the woman on the Ra-Men Podcast.

The part that I find funniest is that it's making its way from Poe to real phenomenon, with the addition of the actual Christians who really buy the suggestion.  It could make a full transition if the group splinters, with one of the Christian true-believers going off and forming another group, pushing the argument seriously this time.

@Richard Cahill

Isn't Idaho where they are trying to promote an official state religion?

You have to narrow it down a bit, man.  There are several states that have had legislation to that effect at least proposed in one of the state legislative branches, in the last few years, including my own.  The dominionists are beginning to show their hand a bit more openly, since about 2010 or so.
