Okay, maybe this guy isn't serious. Father RODERICK VONHÖGEN is a Catholic priest from the Archdiocese of UtrechtIk in the Netherlands, and I have a sneaking suspicion that, although he's doing something of a bit, it is a serious part of his "ministry".
Either way, this video offers further proof that the Neo-Catholic establishment has become an entity whose absurdities simply defy expansion or exaggeration. Satire is wasted on these Neo-Catholics because their entire shtick is self-satirizing.
To paraphrase Laurence Peter, “Sometimes I wonder whether the new Church is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.”
And this guy is a priest forever according to the order of Melchisedech? Really?
