Understatement of the week

| 1 Comment

A sad story of a priest who left the Church to join up with folks who want Catholic sacramental trappings but none of the doctrinal baggage and moral responsibility of the actual Truth. The priest's heresy conviction means he'll be officially defrocked.

Here's how the journalist contrasted Catholic church teaching to the gentlemen's new gig:

His denomination considers itself Catholic in the sense of celebrating its sacraments. But it does not believe in the infallibility of the pope and permits married and female clergy. It also permits same-sex unions and holds more liberal views than the Vatican on divorce and birth control.

So after that night and day laundry list, his new denomination is "more liberal?" Winner - understatement of the week.
