We All Suffer Together

I suppose it's a small comfort that nearly every foolishness found in ECUSA these days has its equivalent in the Roman Catholic Church. A case in point is a group of alleged RC womyn, 'sixties veterans by their appearance, who go around calling themselves, preposterously, "Roman Catholic Womenpriests" (sic). It is well worth viewing their apologia on YouTube and while it is mildly depressing to see hippie gals of a more than certain age cavorting about playing priest, that is more than made up for by the spokesunit of this outfit whose didactic delivery had me howling and to whom even Al Gore would salute. Even more hilarious is the Roman Catholic Womenpriests' website which offers putative arguments for their legitimacy. Here is my favorite (but read them all, they're gems every one).

MYTH: These ordinations as women priests are not recognized or valid.
TRUTH: The group "RC Womenpriests" receives its authority from Roman Catholic bishops who stand in full Apostolic Succession. These bishops bestowed sacramentally valid ordinations on the women listed above. All the documents pertaining to these ordinations have been attested and notarized. All minutes of the ordinations, including data about persons, Apostolic Succession, and rituals, together with films and photos are deposited with a Notary Public.

May God have mercy on the souls of the bishops but never mind, friends: a genuine Notary Public has placed those precious documents in his safe, one with both a combination AND key lock. If that don't make them dames priests, well, there's always the Episcopal Church.
