PONCHO LADIES: DEROGATORY???

On the RPInet message boards, one poster writes:
Oh and btw Brian..."Poncho Ladies"? That is pretty derogatory IMO.

LMAO!

What's seventy times seven times more derogatory is the act that said "Poncho Ladies" are performing - pretending to be women priests in the Roman Catholic Church. After all, these nutcases have to have some kind of a name. They're no longer Catholic, once they've "ordained" each other. And they need a name. "Woman Priests" just doesn't cut it, as "Woman Priests" they are not. They perform so-called "masses" (only the Mass as said by a legitimately ordained priest gets the "capital M" spelling in my book) in undisclosed locations for fear of getting their butts busted (via sharp criticism from the snarkhood, ex-communication, or heckling a la Waldorf and Statler), wearing low-quality dollar-store ponchos, blatantly neutering the Holy Name of God in all Three Persons. It's a foul, blatant mockery of the Holy Eucharist. Now I ask the poster this... WHO'S DEGRADING WHO?!

Peace,

PS: They're still "Poncho Ladies"!

Maybe the person who called you on that knits ponchos? :)

Why *do* they call them poncho ladies in the first place? Is it some sorta 70's flashback thing?

Thankfully, I've never worn a poncho in my life. Except for that rainy day in Disney and it was a "rain poncho" LOL.

The name "Poncho Ladies" goes back to a couple of years ago when I referred to their "vestments" as "dollar store ponchos".

Oh, I forgot to mention - shortly after I started using the term "Poncho Ladies", Argent took the liberty of using the ™ trademark symbol along with it. :)

:) I see it all the time and I know who it refers to. Just wonder why/how it started.
