Catholics and Methodists agree: don't litter.

As leaders of nations and scientists were gathering in Copenhagen to figure out ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions that have been linked to global warming, representatives from the United Methodist Church (UMC) and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) held their third meeting to discuss Christian responsibility in caring for God’s creation.

The dialogue between the UMC and the USCCB dates back to 1966 and has covered a broad range of theological and moral topics. In Round 7 the two churches are focusing on caring for God’s creation from a Eucharistic perspective, a theme that Bishop William S. Skylstad of Spokane, Washington, Catholic co-chair, views as holding out opportunities for Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox Christians to “witness together in solidarity and common responsibility.”

The ringside judges awarded Round 7 to the Methodists. In Round 8, the CFOs of Oldsmobile and Enron will discuss the Christology of Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange.

    Yet another testimony to the USCCB's irrelevance. It's freezing outside and the only hot air generated is from their irrelevant mouths.

    Good thing that I checked in this morning as I was just about to throw my empty milk carton into the regular refuse can. Thanks to this dialogue, I reached over and put it into the recycling bin. Whew! Whatever would be do without prelates like His Excellency, Bishop Skylstad?

    My bet is that the CFOs would do a better job explaining Catholic Christology than Skylstad.
