The People Against Irony Network wish to apologise for the offensive nature of the acronym of their old name. They had not spotted the irony. They wish to stress that they did not wish to imply that humourless, non-ironic self-importance was a monoply of Lutheranism but is actually found in all denominations and brands of Christianity. As a result, they have agreed to change their name in order to avoid silly acronyms and better express the inclusive, conversational, inter- if not post-denominational nature of their movement. From now on they will be know as the National Ecumenical Council of Knowledgeable People Against Ironic Names.
