This is Crazy

You know how some video is making the rounds, and all your friends are laughing at it, but you don't watch it because you don't have time, and anyway, some annoying people thought it was funny, and you're just too cool to indulge in all the hysteria?

Well, that's how I felt about this. But I was wrong. A song championing Women's Ordination In Our Time, to the tune of Call Me Maybe. Just... watch it.

The group that made this is serious. Unfortunately for them, their arguments aren't. The tipoff: the baby in the "Mommy for Pope!" onesie, the college girls in Catholic school uniforms making sloppy signs of the cross, and the post-song cheering, as if they'd completed some great feat equal to Pheidippides' run from Marathon.

You may not find yourself a convert to the women's priesthood lobby, but you may acquire a strange new respect for Carly Rae Jepsen's artistry.

Wow! This is just so wrong.

Well, if I had any latent feminist sympathies for the idea of female ordination, that about took care of 'em.
Yeesh, that was awful!

I have resisted hitting play for several days now but have succumbed. Oh. My. Goodness. That wasn't a parody?

Their two biggest arguments seem to be "don't listen to St. Paul" and "this is crazy." Yeesh, not exactly intellectually robust.
