Phony Ordination...On a Boat?

I mean...their obstinent dissent from Church teaching is bad enough, but these fake ordinations are always taking place on these boats. Weird. And apparently the next one is in Canada...and you guessed it...it's going to be on a boat on the St. Lawrence River! Maybe the boat represents their separation from the Body of Christ (represented by the land), as they float where they will, apart from the guidance of the Holy Spirit in Christ's Bride, the Church.

There are only two good words to describe women ordaining themselves "priests" or "bishops," and I think they were mentioned in this article: useless and irrelevant.

Sidestepping the debate for a moment on the efficacy of these acquatic ordinations (I'm unsure whether church law is binding in international waters (or Canada)), but are there would-be women priests (or supporters) out there who confine their disagreement over Sacred Tradition to the male priesthood issue ? It would be interesting indeed to hear from them.

After all, it certainly doesn't make it easier in debate when the proverbial mouse doesn't just ask for a cookie and expect a glass of milk, but wants an empty shopping cart and about 20 minutes alone in the store. (shopping imagery coincidental).

Case in point. If you click on the link you notice that one of the would-be ordained persons is a married mother of two and a p.e. teacher. Wonder where she'll fit in the 17 hour days as a priest with a 500 family parish ? I don't guess she bothered to ask the local bishop for a dispensation for the celibacy thing either. I mean, who's counting anyway ?

I just ordained myself on the subway. Does that count?

It's weird. Almost like... I don't care!
