“I’m a Fiddler Crab!”

“I’m a fiddler crab! It’s fiddler crab season!”

Every time I see a story like this:

Grandmother boasts: “I’m Long Island’s first female priest”

I think of this (at the 18-second mark):

Sweetie, you ain’t a priest: you’re just a sad old lady with delusions, playing dress up.

And now you’re something else: excommunicated.

    Yep! You got it. Lord, Have Mercy! Then she quotes Ghandi and Martin Luther. That’s magisterial teaching.

    She isn’t even the first. She ain’t Roman Catholic anymore by definition, and Rhode Island has seen female preachers come and go for about 200 years now.

    I used to play dress up like this too. When I was six.

    There are now 120+ women priests in America. they ordain 10-12 a month. People like women priests. Many male priests enjoy and support their ministries.

    In 20 years there may be more women priests than male priests.

    You are sour grapes.

    There is no such thing as a woman Catholic priest, and there never will be. There are not 120+ women priests: there are 120+ excommunicated delusional narcissists playing let’s pretend.

    They want to play dress up and pretend to be priests? There are plenty of groups willing go along with their act. They only pretend to be Catholic priests so people will pay attention to them.

    12 womynpriests per month is 144 per year, or 2880 over 20 years. Catholics in the U.S. ordain 400+ priests per year, or 8000 over 20 years. Not to mention we have 40,000+ priests now.

    If you don’t want to learn theology, at least learn arithmetic.

    Of course they have the leisure of ordaining 10-12 a month! Actual priests in the Catholic Church have to study for around 7 years before they get ordained – womynpriests on the other hand need to merely “feel” the Spirit’s call and ask to be ordained and in a matters of months, its a done deal!
