Heresy hunters?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 26, 2003

If you enjoy Catholic rituals, but not Catholic teachings, you might find the American Catholic Church attractive. There's an actual organization by that name-- distinct (oh, yes; very distinct) from the Catholic Church founded on the Apostles. For an illustration of how quickly schism moves off into self-parody, check our their "Tenets of the Faith." My own personal favorite is #7:

7. That, as in the early Christian community, there are only three mortal sins needing to be confessed: murder, adultery, and heresy.

These folks take heresy seriously. Which is funny, in a way, because... Guess what?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
