It's those Poncho Ladies™ again - and they're making news all over the place, getting all geared up for their ordination skit on a boat off Pittsburgh.
In fact, thanks to my west coast buddy Gerald, I was able to find not only a piece in the Washington Post, but our humble (ha ha) blog linked in the write-up. To it, Gerald got my attention - Yo, Brian Michael Page! Here is the paragraph in question from the paper:
The Pittsburgh ceremony is being ignored by prominent Catholic publications on the right and left, although the women are being slammed as heretics on many Catholic blogs, which tend to lean conservative. A writer on http://christusvincit.blogspot.com/ said the women were "like a bunch of young girls in a dollhouse 'playing school.' "
First off, let me congratulate the Post for not misquoting me. Yes - I did say that! Here's the post I wrote to prove it! Here's the entire sentence with the phrase in question, referring to a Pittsburgh area woman who will be known as one of the "Pittsburgh Twelve":
Instead, she's simply going to become a poncho lady in a bogus ritual on a boat, kinda like a bunch of young girls in a dollhouse "playing school".
These women have pretty much signed their own excommunication decree. Here's Gerald's closing remarks:
Well, at least they'll all be excommunicated latae sententiae, by the very act of playing "womanpriest". Since most of them had some kind of function in the church, this is, in a way, a good thing. One can only hope that it won't take them as long to figure out as in Boston, where one such "womanpriest" kept working for the diocese. Wake me when they "ordain" anyone under 40.
