There were ordinations in Indiana!!! The 'Spirit' of the Council gave us a wonderful new woman priest! Or, should I say priestess? (here is the joy!) Those patriarchal anti-environment chauvinists in Rome, who by the way, don't even practice social justice, must embrace this movement. Who is this Pope to tell us, WE ARE CHURCH what to do?!? Did you hear what he had to say on Holy Thursday? I mean those poor Austrian priests. We need women, especially to sensitize men! Myself, I have forgotten that I ever had testicles, because its so polarizing! Instead, we at our parish, both male and female, possess what we call 'penginas.' It helps to further bring us together.
Well I picked up Bishop Smirk at the airport with my toyota prius and drove right over to the worship space. The only thing we both agreed on was that the ceremony was a little too masculine, like praying the 'Our Father!' Especially since we know say the 'Our Hermaphrodite Deity' in my faith community. As well in the future, perhaps we can invite all members of ALL faith traditions, atheists, gays and transgendered, dogs and cats, plants and seaweed to lay hands on the candidates for priestessesesssess. Since the last categories do not have hands, we'll just invite them to touch. In these light we truly become Fishers of people that God/Gaia wants us truly to be. Just don't listen to those mean Vaticaners who believe in objective truth. They are nothing but big 'meanies,'.we need to be sensitive and not judge, unless its Catholicism, therefore we can be 'in betweenies.'
Let's all ask Joan Chittester to chant a mantra for us! Yayyyy!
