Pope Opens Door for Anglican Communion

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Pope Benedict XVI is paving the way for Anglican groups to take communion with the Catholic Church. In recent years some conservative Anglicans have been angered by their church’s decision to accept female priests and openly gay bishops. Retired Rev. George Langberg, Bishop of the Northeast Anglican Church in America, says he's happy about the move. But he says Anglicans won't be "converting," but instead simply entering into communion with Catholics. John Allen, senior correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, joins us with more of the story.

Guests:

John Allen and Ret. Reverend George Langberg

[[ Comment edited. Please be civil. -Eds ]] now the Pope has to enter the world of mergers & acquisitions and join forces with other branches of the cult. Beautiful! Won't be long now till we're waging another Holy War on the Middle East....oh, no, wait! We're already doing that!

I seriously doubt the interviewers would be so sanguine about these wayward Anglicans if they were leaving their church for reasons of racism instead of the sexism and homophobia.
