Hathaway says she left church over gay brother [CN-USA]

Brokeback Mountain star, Anne Hathaway, who has a gay brother, says she and her family left the Catholic Church to become Episcopalian over Catholic teaching on homosexuality.


The article goes on to say; "Though, in all honesty, after Hathaway's ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri embroiled the Vatican in a scandal over their seeming involvement in the convicted fraud's phony real-estate scheme, we're not sure the Church was so sad to see her go. "

Pray for all of us sinners!

Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, Ora Pro Nobis Pecatoribus!


Anne Hathaway said:

"The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out," she told the magazine. "Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?"

Actually, she's got it totally wrong. The Church's view of her brother is relatively unlimited, compared to the view he has of himself.

Not to be picky but there was already a thread on this very recently (within the last few days) plus it's kind of OLD news anyway in that in that other thread it mentioned that they had joined the episcopal Church, then left THAT one, etc.
