“when you are in need of a little feminist pick me up!”

“We are excited to have found a video of the momentous event which we share with you for those moments when you are in need of a little feminist pick me up!”

More from the promoters of Women’s Ordination, wasting some time… back in March. HERE

Here is their exciting new video on the site of the Women’s Ordination Conference.

These talented young people put this together during a Call To Action conference in Memphis. I wasn’t invited.

NB: This whole exercise is yet another demonstration that they deeply crave the approval of men.

I know you are interested in the theologically impressive lyrics.

I go to Mass each day,
I sure know how to pray,
But God has more to say, oooh oooh
God has more to say, oooh oooh.

I’m tryin to create,
But I don’t wanna wait.
What would Jesus say? oooh oooh
Yeah what would Jesus say? oooh oooh

Spirit won’t stop movin’
Can’t stop, won’t stop groovin’ [it’s groovy]
It’s like I got this calling
In my mind sayin it’s gonna be alright.

[Chorus – Boy is this impressive…]
Cause the bishops gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
And the pope will excommunicate, ate ate
I’m just gonna shake shake shake shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Shake it off, shake it off

Nuns never miss a beat,
But always take the heat.
Pope Francis just don’t see, oooh oooh
Hey, Francis don’t you see? oooh oooh

If Church is gonna grow,
Misogyny must go,
That’s what they don’t know, oooh oooh
Yeah that’s what they don’t know, oooh oooh

Spirit won’t stop movin’
Can’t stop, won’t stop groovin’
It’s like I got this calling
In my mind sayin it’s gonna be alright.

[Chorus 2x]

I’ll turn on the moderation queue now.

  1. Laura says:

    Oh my. They’ve been hanging with the wrong ‘old’ folks. I have to say, I don’t know any young Catholics like this. None.

  2. juergensen says:

    “I voted for Obama,
    As if you couldn’t tell.”

  3. Latin Mass Type says:

    I think this is a valid question.

    Were the performers all female? I could ask more but I’ll refrain.

  4. Burke says:

    Wow! When I read the lyrics I thought you were making fun and had written them yourself, Father. But nooooo, they did it all by themselves!

    Maybe that’s why they want to be ordained? Because show-business is clearly not on the cards …

  5. Kerry says:

    Faster than ipecac!

  6. SaintJude6 says:

    Always sad (and confusing) to see these women who can’t appreciate the beauty of true womanhood. Instead, they reject that beauty and spend their lives making themselves (and those around them) miserable. Nothing quite as fruitless as a life wasted by focusing on what can never be.

  7. Robbie says:

    I wasn’t able to watch more than 20 seconds of the video, but do these young women really think they’re advancing their cause?

  8. Charles E Flynn says:

    I thought I had it bad when I had to put up with a female “liturgist” substituting a reading from “Winnie the Pooh” for a reading from Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John, when I was an undergraduate at a university that now costs 15 times as much per annum.

  9. ASPM Sem says:

    Good Lord, they could have at least started a few pitches higher.

    I didn’t know it was possible to make TSwift even worse at this point…color me surprised

  11. Hank Igitur says:

    what would happen if they underwent gender reassignment and sought to be ordained as “men”?

  12. Jackie L says:

    Is there a video for Fr. Ferguson’s Lady Tambourine Priest? It is the best response to this nonsense.

  13. Veritatis Splendor says:

    If I might be allowed to add a verse:

    Servus servorum Dei
    Pontifex maximus
    The vicar of Christ says no, no, no
    So how can we say go, go, go?

  14. Ann Malley says:

    Agreed. The misogyny must go. Women need to stop hating on being women. (Moving past the era that brought us ‘groovin’ would be a start.)

    On a personal level, ouch. That was just painful and I only read the “lyrics”.

  15. LuxPerpetua says:

    Part of me feels really sad for these women. They are caught up in a delusion which effectively puts their souls in peril. We must pray for them.

  16. Benedict Joseph says:

    Surely this is the event that makes it infallibly evident that liberalism of any stripe is definitively a mental disorder. Compound that reality with their complete lack of awareness of how they are perceived by others. Nevertheless, they are legion! Mind numbing. And nowhere to hide.

  17. Elizabeth D says:

    interlinear translation:

    I go to Mass each day, [I attend Mass or a feminist liturgy every day,]
    I sure know how to pray, [I am proud of myself,]
    But God has more to say, oooh oooh [“God is still speaking…” oooh oooh]
    God has more to say, oooh oooh. [says the United Church of Christ slogan, oooh oooh.

    I’m tryin to create, [I am fornicating,]
    But I don’t wanna wait. [Not waiting to get married.]
    What would Jesus say? oooh oooh [Don’t you think Jesus would say this is fine? oooh oooh]
    Yeah what would Jesus say? [Yeah don’t you know Jesus is cool with what I’m doing? oooh oooh]

  18. iamlucky13 says:

    If the bishops, who are going to “hate, hate, hate, hate, hate” and the pope who will “excommunicate, ate, ate” are apparently unjust authorities in the Church, who’s left in the Church to justly ordain these women to the priesthood?

    Perhaps the desire is not to be ordained to the priesthood, but to be hired or elected to it. This line of thought, unfortunately treats the administering of the sacraments as a career opportunity or popularity contest, not a ministerial imitation of Christ, and even more starkly, rests on the truly misogynistic belief that women’s value depends on what they do, rather than being inherent to their nature as human beings and equal to that of men regardless of worldly status or accomplishment.

    Of course, a lot of this no doubt arises from lack of understanding that the Church not simply will not, but honestly can not ordain women. This is what Pope John Paul II taught:

    “Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church’s divine constitution itself, in virtue of my ministry of confirming the brethren (cf. Lk 22:32) I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful.”

    There’s not a shred of ambiguity of any kind in what he said: “this judgement is to be definitively held by all the Catholic faithful.”

    Since the other readers here, myself, and the women in that video all profess to be Catholics, what we need to do if a teaching doesn’t make sense, is not rant about how much we despise the successors of the apostles and publish songs on the internet mocking our own Church, but try to understand the teaching. In this case, Pope John Paul II didn’t just leave us in the dark scratching our heads. He discussed it briefly when he made that proclamation, and more importantly, he referred us directly to the official reaffirmation of the Church’s reasoning, Inter Insigniores, published by Paul VI.

    It’s longer than most things we read on the internet, but really not long at all in the grand scheme of things. So if we believe the other teachings of the Church, rather than jumping off the boat because of this one, we really should read it attentively and pray to understand and take it to heart.

  19. Dimitri_Cavalli says:

    I’m disappointed.

    No tambourines.

  20. jflare says:

    Well, if we wanted to know how folk or pop got a bad name, we certainly have a good example here.

  21. LuxPerpetua says:

    If you pay close attention, the girl on the far right (about 1 min. into the video) is wearing a white sweatshirt that says “Boston College” on it. That about says it all.

  22. It might have been mildly interesting if they had WRITTEN THEIR OWN MUSIC …

  23. GAK says:

    Now I, for one, am not going to take them seriously until they sing in matching t-shirts.
    On the front: “I squat so I can squash the patriarchal magisterium with my powerful thighs.”
    On the back: “Jesus loves all the feminist weirdos.”

  24. Tantum Ergo says:

    In defense of these women:
    1.) They didn’t play an electric accordion like the one I was subjected to once at Mass.
    2.) No giant puppets (visible)
    3.) No liturgical “dancing” especially with incense, (at THIS gathering)
    4.) This song had no “kum-by-YAAA!” refrain (on this clip)

    “And the pope will excommunicate, ate ate” (I sure hope so!)

  25. TawdryPenitent says:

    Father Z,
    This is is just too much, especially after yesterday’s video of the ‘Mass’ with the big scary puppets and crazy dancers and things too egregious to mention.
    All of them are as brain dead as lobotomized helminthes suffering from neurosyphilitic paresis.

  26. GAK says:

    Though I’d consider matching Ruth Bader Ginsburg bicep tatoos, along with “A woman is more dangerous than a loaded pistol” tattooed across their faces, in lieu of t-shirts.

    I’m not unreasonable, I’d just like a stronger commitment from them before I rent head space to their antics. Else how do I know they are not simply mugging for the camera? I do not.

  27. Sonshine135 says:

    If all of a sudden the sky fell, and women were allowed to be ordained, the number of people who would actually attend the “mess” ( I can’t bring myself to call it a Mass, because it wouldn’t be one.) are represented in the video above. I pray for these poor, brainwashed women- enslaved by their own liberation movement.

  28. Legisperitus says:

    This is the most… this-like thing since “Ordain a Lady.”

  29. Rosary Rose says:

    Why don’t they become Espicopalian? They have female ministers AND altar rails.
    But seriously, praying for them!

  30. TWF says:

    Rosary Rose: even liberal Anglicans can still celebrate beautiful liturgies. Our catholic leftists seek to crush all beauty at any costs. They wouldn’t be able to stomach Episcopalian liturgy – far too traditional in its trappings.

  31. roma247 says:

    @ iamlucky and Rosary Rose:

    These women (and others) neither leave the church to find what they want (by becoming Episcopalian, etc.) nor seek the reasons behind the Church’s teachings, because by now religion has become nothing more than a social club. This is what they grew up with. They don’t want to leave it, that would mean admitting to themselves that it matters enough to actually make the inferred statement they’d be making by leaving. Nor do they care to work hard enough to understand it as a FAITH and subjugate themselves and their desires to the discipline of a mother. They want their religion to become what they want it to be, to really act like nothing more than a social club, so that they can have the satisfaction of not having to leave it and thereby be “affirmed” in their beliefs/behaviors/apathy.

    I have seen this exact thing happen with my mother-in-law, who has somehow fallen under the spell of “new-age” beliefs. She reads a lot of Buddhist stuff that talks about how Jesus was a “Great Master” but believes that the Bible was written by a bunch of self-serving disciples who just wanted to justify lording it over others. No superior reason will prevail against this rejection. And yet she faithfully attends Mass every Sunday and receives the Eucharist. When asked why, she sees no conflict in the two. For her, it would be unthinkable not to go to Mass. She’s been going there every Sunday all her life. And she still loves Jesus, she just doesn’t believe He’s God. So of course, she still goes and receives Him because she loves Him! (Besides, people would talk if she stopped going, but that is only an undercurrent.)

    Meanwhile she looks down her nose and has nothing nice to say about the Church she grew up in, with the priest ignoring everybody (because of course, he only ever showed them his back) and everybody doing everything else but paying attention (because they prayed the rosary instead!) and besides, you couldn’t follow along if you tried, because the choir was always singing stuff!

    So if the Church could change and become something else that made her happy back in the ’70’s, why shouldn’t she expect it to change more to fit her new beliefs?

    No, it’s not a FAITH, it’s a social club. Social clubs change. Why shouldn’t the Church? It did before…

    I didn’t realise this wasn’t parohymnody until I saw that the moderation queue was on.

  33. VeritasVereVincet says:

    The word “tragic” comes to mind. Not the song choice (I happen to like the original), but that they truly think what they mutilated it to say is right. It’s…incredibly sad.

  34. Suburbanbanshee says:

    God is made of hate
    Our Jesus is a game

    But the harpies gonna hate, hate, hate, hate
    Till they’re nothing but a flake, flake, flake, flake
    A-flakin’ off, a-flakin’ off.
    The takers gonna take, take, take, take
    And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake
    Get some popcorn, watch ’em flake, flake, flake, flake,
    A-flakin’ off, a-flakin’ off.

    O the Sacrifice is Priest
    He’s in the utter east
    I’m kneelin’ at His feet, m-mm, I’m kneelin’ at His feet, m-mm.
    So far beneath His throne
    But He makes us each His own,

    You could have been drawing close to Jesus Christ!

    “Montanism and a cut-rate schism?

    Dear roma247,

    very interesting.

    I might also assume one other undercurrent is that Catholics know subconsciously that the Church is the true Church. So, if they think they are right and the Church errs, naturally they deduce that the Church should change her view.

    In any case, police can’t reasonably expect that law-breakers turn themselves in. Nor can the Church tribunals expect those they have to discipline to do their job for them.

    Or in this case, the facts are I guess not public enough for a formal public trial resulting in excommunication, but the preacher can make Mass quite uncomfortable, if he speaks with enough scorn and enough good arguments (and enough “this is the dogma of the Church and not just my opinion”s) about your mother-in-law’s pet heresies – one other reason why preachers should not (as they often seem to be) be only hard on the petty failures of pious people, but sometimes also on the errors they suspect noone of their congregation to adhere to.

  36. AnnTherese says:

    Amen to “nuns never miss a beat” and “misogyny must go!”

  37. gramma10 says:

    Oh my—-really—-the world has gone MAD!

    This is scary. But the puppet mass yesterday was scarier.
    That weird man who maybe is a priest did the Consecration with some wine.
    So does that mean there really was transubstantiation?

    Can’t the bishop over him do something? Or is this all fake?

    The people who were there need someone to rescue them. Many looked old and bored and maybe they had nothing better to do.

    But if I was scrubbing toilets, that surely would be something better to do that that!
    Good grief.

    Huh. The lyricist spelled “all right” wrong — twice!!
