But…. but… we have been informed that the hokey-pokey is anti-Catholic! One of the perpetually aggrieved of Glasgow said so!
I only wish we could have seen what someone like Rumpole would make of this:
“You say that my client deliberately and maliciously put his right foot in and then put his right foot out?”
“That is correct.”
“And did he then shake it all out?”
Could we now debunk the idea that the peace symbol is a satanic symbol used in medieval witchcraft ceremonies? Pretty please?
Actually, I WANT it to be anti-Catholic. First, because it is so banal, and our protestant enemies seem awfully childish launching that against is.
But mostly because my secularly-protestant boss used to love to joke “Maybe the Hokey-Pokey really is what it’s all about!” and I would smile and nod, knowing that he was absolutely correct, even if he didn’t know it.
Yep. Though unsure of where the feet bit comes in. I’m pretty sure no form of the Mass ever prescribed shaking feet.
