Albany Bishop Joins Roman Catholic Church

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 01, 2007

April Fool!

Headlines can be cruelly deceptive, Amanda. It wasn't that Albany bishop.

Still, nothing prevents us from praying for a twofer.


"Would that mean I'd have to, like, worship statues 'n stuff ...?"

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    We live in a society that tells us repeatedly that fulfilling our own needs, wants and desires should be our number-one priority; it is a society where personal choice is the supreme value; where the Frank Sinatra ballad, "I Did It My Way," has become the national anthem; where the self reigns; where seeing other people as things to serve one's needs is the moral norm, let the chips fall where they may, be these the chips of abortion, adultery, pornography, corporate greed...-Bishop Hubbard

    Can we close another school or something? I've got to raise another two or three million dollars to "clear my name" again, for the good of the church.

    In all my years of involvement with ECUSA, I've never heard this Anglican bishop. Why wasn't he standing up to hold the line in that denomination? Well, better late than never. Welcome, bishop, to the authentic Church of Christ.

    "...as you enter another room in Christ's church." Sorry bp. Schori, His house has many mansions but they are all part of the Catholic Church. You are, of course, welcome to join us also.

    Nope, The Episcopal bishop was looking for the truth.

    Maybe the liberal Jesuits will follow him in!
