For those who have never heard of Polari.

Now, thanks to the unstinting efforts of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, there is an entire translation of the Bible into Polari. Thus, the Sermon on the Mount:

And vardaing the multitudes, she trolled up into a mountain: and when she was set, his disciples trolled unto her:
2 And she opened his screech, and taught them, cackling,
3 fabed are the nanti dinarly in fairy: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 fabed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 fabed are the camp: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 fabed are they which do hunger and thirst after bonaness: for they shall be filled.
7 fabed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 fabed are the pure in thumping cheat: for they shall varda Gloria.
9 fabed are the peacemakers: for they shall be screeched the chavvies of Gloria.
10 fabed are they which are chivvied for bonaness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 fabed are ye, when homies shall revile you, and chivvy you, and shall cackle all manner of nana against you falsely, for my sake.

Some might find this frivolous, or even blasphemous, but I think Josie Crystal and Her Duchessness Gloria would understand. Check out your favourite passages...
