The video below is hilarious. My only criticism is that they move a little too fast to read some of the "translations." As I'm posting it the video has only 84 views. Can we make it go viral?
Saul Alinsky was a brilliant tactician. Anyone who's read his Rules for Radicals has to recognize that his rules work. Some are immoral. (He believed the end justifies the means and would use just about any means to achieve his goals.) But without accepting the evil in his rule book, one can certainly borrow his morally neutral means. And humor is a big one.
Rule 5: Ridicule is man's most potent weapon
I once gave a pro-life slide presentation in a classroom with some parents present. One gentleman gave me a hard time, but at the end of the presentation said he hoped he hadn't been too hard on me and that I wasn't upset. (You know, sensitive women and all that.) Without even thinking I replied, "Hey I'm used to it, I have teenagers.") Everybody laughed except him. I wasn't trying to make fun of him; I was saying what I really felt, but the result was definitely a gift from the Holy Spirit.
I hope you'll share this video on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and send it to your email lists. Let's poke a little fun at the progressives who tried to hijack the Extraordinary Synod on the Family. It will be good for their humility.
(Hat tip to Carol at The Tenth Crusade. I saw it on her blog first.)
