The Catholic church is making another terrible mistake. Allowing them to keep some of their beliefs says that the Catholic church does not have it all.

Vatican two and it's new ways has almost bled the church to death. What a lot of misfits in charge since then.

I haven't studied what the Catholic Church actually said. It's my understanding, however, that the Catholic faith hasn't changed to adjust to the Episocopalians. What has changed is that a couple of the Episocopalian rites are being kept. So the Episocopalians turned Catholic will not be allowed to have women priest and bishops, or marry gays in the churches. They may keep some of their prayer books and the order of how they do mass. i.e. when to kneel, sit, etc.

Again, I haven't studied this. So if the Pope has actually said that what was once a sin for Catholics is now allowed then please correct me. I do know about the married priest issue. This is not new. It's just that this is the first time that the Catholic church might get 1,000 priest in one event. I did read that the Episocopalian Bishop who is converting will not be a Bishop anymore due to him being married.
