Superchristological and Homoousiosis!
« on: August 11, 2006, 10:01:53 AM »
From Fr. Joseph Huneycutt's blog, ORTHODIXIE, here's this hilarious song:

To the tune of "Supercalafragalisticexpialadocius" ...

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

Superchristological and Homoousiosis
Even though the sound of them is something quite atrocious
You can always count on them to anathemize your Gnosis
Superchristological and Homoousiosis

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

Now Origen and Arius were quite a clever pair.
Immutable divinity make Logos out of air.
But then one day Saint Nicholas gave Arius a slap--
and told them if they can't recant, they ought to shut their trap!

[chorus] Oh, Superchristological and Homoousiosis...

One Prosopon, two Ousia are in one Hypostasis.
At Chalcedon this formula gave our faith its basis.
You can argue that you don't know what this means,
But don't you go and try to say there's a "Physis" in between!

[chorus] Oh, Superchristological and Homoousiosis...

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay

Now freedom and autonomy are something to be praised,
But when it comes to human sin, these words must be rephrased,
For Pelagius was too confident that we could work it out--
And Augustine said *massa damnata* is what it's all about.

[chorus] Oh, Superchristological and Homoousiosis...

Heresies are arguments that you might find attractive,
But just remember in this case the Church is quite reactive.
So play it safe and memorize these words we sing together,
'Cause in the end you'll find, my friend, that we may life forever.

[chorus] Oh, Superchristological and Homoousiosis
Even though the sound of them is something quite atrocious
You can always count on them to anathemize your Gnosis
Superchristological and Homoousiosis

This Priest sounds like a blast. I bet his Parish is packed to the hilt on Sunday.
I briefly looked at his blog - I have to say I am surprised that in a Baptist Bible Belt area Orthodoxy is doing well!
A good thing.

And it's nice to know that Fr. Joseph Honeycutt also reads the OCnet forum:
In his blog he has quoted a comment I made about his book here on OCnet:

His blog entry:

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I'm so glad to see a sense of humor on this site ; something  we Orthodox could use more of.
