You can’t parody this

From The Boston Globe: “Kerry Kennedy talks about her new book, in which she strives to reconcile her Catholic faith with the teachings of the church.”

Read that quote again. Then watch the video.

She even says at one point that certain “words and symbols” of the Church are “anathema” to her. If you know the context in which that word is traditionally used…well, my talents as a parodist can’t begin to match this one.

  1. “Faith comes through hearing yourself talk; and what is heard must be the word of Christ”-Romans 10:17. (Quote taken from THE HOLY SCRIPTURE OF OUR STOOGE AND LACKEY Jesus Christ. Trnaslated and edited by N. Pelosi and J. Biden. Pulished by the DNC Press, Washington, 2008)

  2. And we should care about Kerry K why?

  3. Thanks for a good belly laugh.

  4. SS:

    We should care about KK because she’s such a perfect self-parody of cafeteria Catholicism that we can incorporate her stuff very effectively into our material.😉

    Best,

  5. I might laugh but the first I heard about the book was from my fallen away Catholic co-worker who is reading the book and enjoying it. I believe it confirms all her prejudices about why she herself doesn’t go to Church Sundays.

    BINGO!

    Sour Grapes have terrible flavor… but some people are addicted.
