“Liturgy” of Women’s Ordination Conference

At the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap), dissidents as they are, they fall over each other in support of the (impossible) ordination of women.  Tom Fox seems especially enamored of this fantasy.

There was a gathering of some supporters of women’s ordination, Conference for Ordination of Women… no, Women’s Ordination Conference.  Fishwrap posted the video of their “liturgy“.   

This is the vision that Fishwrap has for their version of “church”.

    I was feeling pretty down when I left a comment on your previous post, but I’ve just watched the video and couldn’t help but laugh. Thank you Fr Z!

    Goodness gracious! That’s a hoot!

    Sad. Terribly, terribly. . .sad.

    The scarf dance is…interesting. I’m glad to see that in addition to not being bound by notions of apostolic authority, a magisterium, or even the actual ability to confer ordination upon women, they’re also not bound by the oppression of a sense of rhythm.

  5. remindme says:

    They actually make a case against women’s ordination, because I would cringe if one of those ladies showed up at our parish as a priest. Maybe you could change the name of the parish to St. Hilarious based on their dancing!

    In Oprah voice “You get a stole, you get a stole, you get a stole everyone gets a stolllllleeee!”

    Extremely sad. I could not find any humor in it, only disgust, I suppose because I looked at all of the older heads participating who should have known better and began selling out to Roman Protestantism 50 years ago beginning with the folk Masses, later dance, later as lay ministers who believed that they could bless anybody and were quasi-priests, anything goes eventually.

    Both of my sisters, now deceased, but would be in their mid-70’s today if they had survived, were into this insanity. I am much younger than they, but as a young boy, I recall the utter rebellion towards the Church amongst the college-age crowd especially that happened in the late 1960’s. I watched my two sisters, reasonably intelligent women, slowly, as the decades past by, fall farther and farther away from the faith and disciplines of our fathers. It was a classic “boiling alive” of the frog in the fishbowl — turn the temperature up slowly, one degree at a time, and the frog has no idea that it’s being boiled alive, doesn’t even know to jump out!

    I hate to have to think it, but this event and (false) movement is the logical conclusion of what blew out in the late 1960’s and the past 50 years of “anything goes.” For an amusing look into the early years of this rebellion, with modernism rebelling against tradition, a period of revolution, seek out a copy of the movie, “Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows” which was released in 1968. While my older siblings were celebrating the revolution, I began to see it for what it was, became disillusioned and disgusted, and eventually left the church. By the grace of God I came back many years later, this time to tradition.

    iamlucky13 — heh.

    These look like they could be the inhabitants on that The Wicker Man island. To the T.

    Did anybody else notice between 4:07 – 4:10, the woman with folded hands, bowing (Namaste?) has her left thumb over her right — opposite of what they SHOULD be?!

    Jazz hands? Seriously, Jazz hands?!!

  9. VeritasVereVincet says:

    Oh no, the poor child at 0:55! Someone rescue her before she grows up to be completely brainwashed! Though she does look singularly unimpressed. Perhaps there is hope.

    I see we have a serious failure to enrhythmicate at 1:11-1:47. Pity they had to scarf-dance all over Star of the County Down, it’s a beautiful tune.

    Ack, Mr. 2:47, what are you doing there! Please remove yourself from the premises so that you may retain your dignity!

    2:58 on, what is this, a fauxrdination celebration? Ordain alllll the women? Methink these pstoles would be better used as sashes.

    her left thumb over her right — opposite of what they SHOULD be?!
    Honestly, I’ve never been able to put my right thumb over my left. It feels horribly awkward and wrong.

    She’s likely left handed. I do that at Mass all the time. I have to go out of my way to reverse it and it feels really weird and unnatural, so I don’t bother.

    I am browsing through “Tom Fox”‘s video history here. Tom Fox is the name of the YouTube channel. He has a video of the hardcore dissident Association of Catholic Priests. Not surprising.

    What is telling is this video he liked one year ago: “4 Of Realistic Woman Orgasm Scenes Ever Filmed – Funny Movie Scene Video Clips”

  13. Sonshine135 says:

    Looks pretty much like what an Episcopal gathering does these days. God have mercy on the poorly catechized.

  14. BenjaminiPeregrinus says:

    It’s almost as if they were trying to turn others against woman’s ordination by publishing this.

  15. Well, at least a liturgy like that would get the millennials back into churches. That’s exactly what the kids these days are looking for — the Divine Dancing-with-Grandma Liturgy.

  16. Charlotte Allen says:

    It’s even funnier with the sound off.

  17. Dave P. says:

    Looks pretty much like what an Episcopal gathering does these days.

    The Episcopalians still have more dignity.

    the Divine Dancing-with-Grandma Liturgy.

    My father and I once volunteered for a “Sacred Dance Ministry” We were turned down, on the grounds that they couldn’t think of anything penitential enough to include us…

  18. Stephen McMullen says:

    …and as usual…..bad liturgical super fem music. Stringy, stuck in the 70s, uninspiring, Ultramundane………….

  19. Stephen McMullen says:

    …..and I wonder how many of these women, are nuns, ex-nuns, or “Lebanese.”

  20. Athelstan says:

    Looks pretty much like what an Episcopal gathering does these days.

    Except they have better music.

  21. Wiktor says:

    This would be a half-acceptable entertainment show/party if they weren’t simulating sacraments, as I assume they do..

  22. YoungLatinMassGuy says:

    Gratias ago tibi, Padre Z!

    That’s exactly what I needed to see to get me angry before my morning work-out with weights!!

  23. CAR says:

    As soon as I saw these ladies dancing it reminded me of the videos of Woodstock dancers only to a much slower tempo now. Oy, do they need our prayers.

  24. BigTin says:

    Dear Father Z,

    2000 years ago I tried to participate in the rites of the Good Goddess. I was thrown out and became the laughingstock of the city. Will the Women’s Ordination Conference take up my cause?


  25. Elizabeth M says:

    We do not know the moment our souls will leave our body. Do not be deceived, the age of someone doesn’t matter to the devil. We can feel sorry for all these “aging hippies” because they look like confused little grandmas but it still comes down to spending an eternity in one place or the other.

    If I were there and given the microphone the only thing I would say “Get thee to a nunery!” I can’t remember where I heard it, but it stuck with me. “We don’t become priests or nuns because we can’t get married or don’t like kids. We do it because that is the way God has chosen for us to save our souls.” The are hungry for true sisterhood, a community to praise and love God.

    Who has a voice loud enough for them to hear?

  26. Kathleen10 says:

    The lady at the beginning is singing “Spirit of our elders, dance in me…”. That is an invitation to spirits, whether one knows it or not.

  27. j says:

    Wow. That was hilarious. Except for how offensive it was. EVERYONE gets a stole (even the kids), ’cause it’s no different from a scarf. More or less the ecclesiastical position of this group.

    My better half tells me that this is the C.O.W. dance of the seven stoles, and they found a way to make it as UNsexy as they could. Veils. Stoles. underwear no-one wants to see.

    But seriously, I was spellbound with my jaw on the floor while watching this vid…WOW.
