“If,” as Catholic blogger Marc Barnes  wrote , “in the course of human events, a cringe-inducing karaoke of an already over-played pop song is your primary response to the philosophical tradition of the Holy Catholic Church, you’ve negated yourself long, long before you’ve been rebutted.” He is talking about the hysterically funny video produced by the Women’s Ordination Conference titled  Ordain a Lady .

Comment is superfluous, except to note the lines about ignoring St. Paul, “other churches” that do ordain women, the pope being “in  my  way,” and “God called me . . .   That’s a fact .” What you have left is pretty much the Episcopal Church and we know how well it’s doing. The video has already gladdened the heart of many an obedient Catholic.
