The combox whine from Ch� of political protest about Todd of liturgical dancing over who had permission from Father when for that time slot in church was classic. Reply Robin May 15, 2007 - 8:28 pm This is WAY too realistic. You sure you didn’t just copy and paste a church bulletin from a campus Newman Center? 🙂 Reply David Stein May 15, 2007 - 8:40 pm WAIT… this isn’t a joke, is it?? Reply PNP, OP May 15, 2007 - 8:45 pm Um, where’s the parody? Reply Mike A. May 15, 2007 - 9:27 pm I think I just got dumber after reading the homily. Reply Christine the Soccer Mom May 16, 2007 - 9:00 am There’s only one thing wrong here. Both priests use “Father” on their signatures. This is very, very wrong. Neither would feel comfortable with it, and I’m sure they’d introduce themselves to everyone as “Tim” and “Juno.” Really. Even to the RCIA class, if they have one. But it’s rather spot-on! I think the real material is coming from SJA, which ought to be on the links as a sister-parish or something. Maybe this is the mission parish from SJA? Reply TSO May 16, 2007 - 10:12 am That’s high-laire. Very well done. Not too over-the-top but then not too subtle either (i.e. the Che stained glass windows would never make it even to the most heretical church). Same with the Horse Whisperer sermon. The parody is funny because it’s just on the edge of what is realistic, and that sermon is very realistic. Reply TSO May 16, 2007 - 10:14 am I meant to say that the sermon, unlike the stained glass, is believable. Also – good point Christine! “Father” is too patriarchical isn’t it? Reply kalej May 16, 2007 - 11:17 am Well, Jeff congrats on being the pres of the Mahony fan club. Reply PNP, OP May 16, 2007 - 11:37 am Christine, You’re on the right track but you miss a very important point about these Spirit of VC2 priests/religious. They are absolutely clerical to the bone and authoritarian all the way through the bone! Typically, they feign egalitarian motives while ruling out of their own “anti-authority” authoritarianism. They are the protean Fascistic Liberals. I know. I had to endure any number of them as profs in my seminary days… Fr. Philip, OP Reply Leave a Reply to Mike A.
