This is how our bishops are trained? No wonder they're a bunch of dancing monkeys!!! Back in the days before Vatican II, Cardinal Spellman was notorious for calling on one priest or another to get up at a dinner and sing a song and then, to thank him for his performance, name him a Monsignor. There is no objection to people having fun and using their talents, but this system is teaching the NACers to be song-and-dance suck-ups to the system and it reinforces the emasculation of the clergy with the scalpel of the Church's smothering institutionalism. It would be much healthier to see the seminarians trained to mix as adults among adults with the rich benefactors flown over for the annual "Rector's Dinner" than to teach them to perform at the command of the hierarchy for the pleasure of the powerful. sick, sick, sick--time for change. Give us priests who are men and not monkeys.
