A little light relief – the Ultimate Trololo Mash Up + a dose of Fry

Well, Dear Reader, you know I am just a teensy bit obsessed with Mr Trololo. And then I saw this, courtesy of Patti’s Facebook page. Oh joy, oh frabjous day, yet once more. How do people have time to do this stuff? No idea. Well, I am just glad they do. Enjoy.

Then on an entirely different slant – if you have time and are feeling thoughtful, have a look at Stephen Fry a few years ago talking about the Roman Catholic Church. Now, I am not an atheist, and I am not especially anti Roman Catholicism – although I disagree with many things about the Roman church to be sure – but my God this is a great piece of public polemical speaking which deserves a wide audience.

I think God loves Stephen Fry. He certainly over-endowed him with grace.

Right, YouTube is just too damned addictive. And it’s dinner time. Pip pip.

    Stephen Fry’s talk was incredibly persuasive and absolutely right on the money with his analysis. I have to wonder what he thinks of the current actions of our U.S. nuns. Nuns never were part of the hierarchy ~ they don’t have the right “equipment,” you see ~ but up until this most recent generation of nuns, most of them toed the line and participated in the oppression. Now many of them have taken the best of Vatican II and have run with it, insisting on their own moral authority and their own calling.

    They truly do serve the poorest of the poor. Some are teaching or nursing in impossible situations. Others are on the cutting edge of the new cosmology and working to save the planet. Their challenges to the hierarchy have been met with extreme ugliness and threats. So far they haven’t backed down. I’m not a Roman Catholic, but right now I’m really rooting for the nuns.
