When was the last time you watched a 30 minute video on YouTube? For me, I can’t even remember. So when I hit “play” on this video I thought I would give it a few minutes and move on. I didn’t. I watched it until the end in one sitting.

Here is the second video in my “Papist Parody” series, which attempt to explain recent Catholic news and controversies with a humorous twist.
