The Church of Dunder-Mifflin.

In the course of an essay about Episcopal Church divisions, Andrew Goddard quotes the following from a biography of Gene Robinson:
[Bishop Theuner] told an amusing story from his early days as a bishop, when a group of bishops were invited to spend time with the American Management Association in New York over a period of several months. The AMA had never worked with a group of religious leaders before, and the man in charge finally told them, "We’ve tried to tailor a program specifically for you, and we’ve tried to match it up with our normal experience in the business world, and we’ve determined that the category you come closest to, in terms of what we’ve done before, is "regional managers of a small corporation."
Explains a lot.
Here's the whole thing.
