Altoona-Johnstown update

By Jeff (articles ) | Jun 15, 2003

From scenic central Pennsylvania comes this article about threatening letters sent to three orthodox Altoona-Johnstown priests. Federal officials and the state police are investigating the letters, sent by an organization that claims to represent twenty-six other priests. The diocese refuses to comment.

In my nomination for the year's most humorous clerical quote, one of the orthodox priests comments: "There certainly are not 26 priests behind this. You couldn't get 26 priests in this diocese to agree on how to tie their shoes if they were wearing loafers."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
