PopeWatch: Too Catholic

From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:

 

Congregants of a Baptist church in South Carolina yesterday unanimously voted to remove all bibles from their church because many believe it’s too “Catholic” for their place of worship.

In a letter written to his congregation, Pastor Don Ringle said the bibles would be removed this week.

“We have discovered that there are people that view the bible as Catholic in nature,” Ringle wrote, going on to say that the bible was beginning to bring into question “the theology and core values of the church.”

“I’ve tried for years to remove certain passages from the bible, telling people to tear out this book and that, this chapter and that, until we were basically left with a pamphlet. After some consideration and dialogue with my congregants, as well as prayer, we decided the whole bible that was left to us still smelled a little too papist.”

The letter also stated that Catholic churches around the South Carolina area had until Friday to pick up the bibles if they wanted to keep them, and that if not, they would be destroyed.

A spokesman for the Catholic Church in the area thanked Ringle, but said that they have no use for abridged versions of the bible.

 

Go here to comment.  PopeWatch has been unable to confirm that in response the Pontifical Council on Interreligious Dialogue is contemplating a statement of concern that the Bible is un-ecumenical.

  1. Old version; Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth

    New Version; Believe In Beelzebub Love Earth

    Bible truths of our time.

  2. At last. The Baptists are catching up with us. Remember, we’re doing away with things like heterosexual marriage, Holy Communion available only to our own flock, celibate priesthood, women not eligible for ordination, preventing fornicating bishops to be appointed cardinals – you know the rest //sarc//

  3. DCDB-Ditto. Man currently wearing papal white – bit by bit – is correcting the errors God made in His Holy Scriptures; if these Baptists can just wait, there will be no more papist pablum in Jorge’s Word and, soon, very few papists in Jesus’s Catholic Church, but pederasts aplenty. Imagine Jorge and the other Gallen Mfia at Pearly GAtes: “And who died and made you God?”. All: have a fullofownder weekend. to those outside Rome: Happy Corpus Christi! Guy Mcclung, Texas
