Donald Collins, in a letter to the Editor of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Having been married by an Anglican bishop, I could not but be surprised by the apparent claim of superior morality, under the rubric of greater unity with Anglicans, in the surprise attack by the Vatican welcoming disaffected Anglicans. Doubtless the Vatican plans to use its usual recruitment tools: gay marriage, abortion and the appointment in the U.S. of an openly gay Episcopal bishop.
Hey, be gone if you wish, Anglicans, but remember this is the same outfit whose priests widely abused its choirboys and other young men with great public remorse and far less internal action, a morality exemplified by Cardinal Roger Mahony, archbishop of Los Angeles, who flouts the rule of law by welcoming and sequestering illegal aliens to expand his flagging Caucasian membership.
Of course, family planning is a no-no. And women priests? Never!
If you like a hard-core, dictatorial, pyramidal hierarchy, this new destination will be right up your alley.
