The debate over ordaining women in the Catholic Church is one of the most contentious — and that’s saying something, given that Catholics are contending over just about anything these days. (Fish on Fridays? Communion in the hand? Pro multis or pro omnia?)
Now comes a new viral video from the Women’s Ordination Conference — titled “Ordain a Lady,” it is a riff on Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” That provenance alone should be enough to scare you off, if you have a daughter in the house who has played “Call Me Maybe” into her Daddy’s earworm.
Liberals are loving on the video, and conservatives who take it seriously are outraged at the blasphemy.
I just winced, and wondered if I’m being a snob. My other thoughts: will this help the cause, or hurt it?
