A false unity

A false unity

There is tiff between Catholics and Episcopalians in Jacksonville, Florida, because the local Catholic bishop rescinded permission to hold the ordination of the local Episcopal bishop in a Catholic church because pro-gay Episcopal bishop Frank Griswold is coming for the ceremony.

While I applaud Bishop Victor Galeone for taking a stance on the issue, I have to wonder why are Episcopalians using a Catholic church for their ceremony in the first place? Don’t they have their own churches? Isn’t this a sample of false ecumenism? To my mind, it would portray a false communion and lend undue credence to the validity of the ordination to allow it to take place in a Catholic church.
