Don’t “Do the Hokey-Pokey”?

Don’t “Do the Hokey-Pokey”?

The “Hokey-Pokey” is anti-Catholic!!! ???

I latched onto this story from Opinionated Catholic, who got it from Canterbury Tales (who got it from The Telegraph, a UK newspaper).

Just a bit of an explanation:  the title of the song-and-dance, apparantely, in Scotland is Hokey Cokey  (see the Wikipedia article).  It comes from the Latin phrase “hoc est enim corpus meum“, which means “This is my body”, which is, of course, the words used by priests at the moment of consecration where Transubstantiation occurs.

It’s also where we get the phrase “Hocus Pocus”.  Wikipedia has other possibilities of the origin of the phrase.

Well, if the Hokey-Pokey IS anti-Cath0lic, then one sure sign would be if the dreadfully anti-Catholic Harry Potter does the dance.

Well, what do you know:  He does.

By the way:

One last question: 

What if the Hokey-Pokey IS what’s it’s all about?
