No More Altar Girls

Edit: the fact of the matter is that the presence of altar girls and women readers destroy vocations. The presence of women on the altar indicates a progressive and revolutionary outlook which are antithetical and toxic to authentic Catholicism. But a cursory look at the actual practice will show that Diocese which don't allow this don't have vocations problems. Once upon a time Northern Virginia didn't have altar girls, then Bishop Loverde came along, but that's another story.

Once the few women of the parish calm down, or decide to become Unitarian or some other religion more suited to their mentality, some vocations to the priesthood should come of this.

[Washtington Post] Mass had just begun at Corpus Christi Catholic Church when Jennifer Zickel, a Sunday school teacher, glanced at the church bulletin and saw something that made her sick to her stomach.

Tucked in with announcements about a new electronic donation system and a church dinner at Margarita’s Mexican restaurant was news that Zickel, the mother of two girls, had been dreading: Corpus Christi would no longer train girls to be altar servers.

Zickel burst into tears and ran to the bathroom.

That Washington Post article was hilarious in its tugging at the heartstrings. All that was missing was Simon Legree and a pack of dogs chasing the cute little altar girls along the river bank.
