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There is tiff between Catholics and Episcopalians in Jacksonville, Florida, because the local Catholic bishop rescinded permission to hold the ordination of the local Episcopal bishop in a Catholic church because pro-gay Episcopal bishop Frank Griswold is coming for the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

  • I didn’t know about the joke Patrick mentioned, but I’m glad he did…I thought I was the only one who ever noticed that Episcopal church buildings are awfully small. In size I mean.

    Seems weird to me, too, that the Diocese considered allowing the installation on Church property in the first place. I mean, I can understand if maybe Bishop Galeone sent Bishop-elect Samuel John Howard a Hallmark Greeting Card, but surely there’s no need to go any further?
