The Covenantal, from the fictional film "The Gay Blessee"

It appears that "covenant" is the latest word to be Shanghaied by those in command of the process to normalize and make sacred same sex relationships. These relationships are being called "covenantal" if they pledge to be life long and monogamous and thus worthy to be considered blessed by the Church.

Here is a little parody based on "The Continental" (1934-lyrics by Herb Magidson) from that appropriately named film "The Gay Divorcee" starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Funny thing, I only had to change three words.

I call it, "The Covenantal."

Beautiful feelin,
Dangerous doctrine

It's something daring, the Covenantal
A way of dancing that's really ultra new
It's very subtle, the Covenantal
Because it does what you want it to do

It has a passion, the Covenantal
An invitation to moonlight and romance
It's quite the fashion, the Covenantal
Because you tell of your love while you dance

Your lips whisper so tenderly
His eyes answer your song

Two bodies swaying, the Covenantal,
And you are saying just what you're thinking of
So, keep on dancing the Covenantal
For it's a song of romance and of love

You kiss while you're dancing
It's covenantal, oh oh oh, it's covenantal
You sing while you're dancing
Your voice is gentle, oh oh oh, and sentimental

You'll know before the dance is through
That you're in love with him and he's in love with you

You'll find while you're dancing
That there's a rhythm in your heart and soul,
A certain rhythm that you can't control
And you will do the Covenantal all the time

Beautiful feelin
Dangerous doctrine
Beautiful feelin
Dangerous doctrine
