The Literal Poster-Child For Roman Protestants
Those whacky kids over at SOV2!

The Catholic version of The Onion. That's the best description I can come up with a certain blog appropriatly named Spirit of Vatican 2 "Catholic" Faith Community.

If you haven't been there yet... go. Just remember, this is satire. Swiftian in the extreme, to be sure. The only really scarey thing about this blog, is that there really are some "Catholic" sites out there that are just like SOV2, but they take themselves serious.

But for the benefit of you who've never ventured into the SOV2 Faith Community, here's a taste of what you can expect:

We are a Faith Community
Hey! Kerri wrote this song for us after I just told her a little bit about us. She said writing it really cheered her up which I am pretty sure that means that she is starting to get the SOV2 spirit. I think it's pretty cool because she left the church a while ago.

We are a Faith Community
by Kerri Erpenblech

I am church and so are you
I am priest and priestess too
Sharing the eu-char-ist's that's me,
According to our self's ab-il-i-ty,

Around our campus community,
You'll find signs of our diversity!
With each banner that proclaims,
The great Feminist Thinkers' names!

(Refrain)
We are a Faith Community
I'll facilitate you, you'll facilitate me!
'Cause we're on a spiritual journey!
So sing a song of harmonious melody!

Let's respect other's dignity,
In a way that's sure to please,
Teaching the children to adore,
The variety of forms of love in store.

(Refrain)

We'll do our parts to steward the Earth,
Do what we can to reduce births,
Eating only granola and soy,
We'll sing our Mother's praise with joy.

(Refrain)
And besides, ya gotta love a blog that has this guy on their staff.

Dr. Thomas Al-fakkir, DEO
Director of Ecumenical Outreach (remember him?)

Sometimes it is hard to tell where the SOV2 satirizing ends & the reality those "Catholic" sites think exists actually starts. In fact, I suspect some of those "Catholic" sites may actually think SOV2 is real & be using SOV2 as a role model.
