"Liberal Catholic Church" Just Baptists in robes?

Their supreme leader looks like the guy from FUTURAMA.


#2

I had family in this area. Have you ever attended mass there?


#3

It is not a Catholic Church under the Pope. It is a combo of Protestant and Old Catholic.

Why would he attend Mass there?


#4

I’ve heard of this Church, but I’m not so sure why you’re comparing them to Baptists? :shrug: The “Liberal Catholic Church” is open to the possibility of reincarnation, ordains “non-celibate gays and lesbians”, and teaches some Universalist (as in Universal Salvation, "everyone one is saved) ideas. That’s far from what Baptists believe and practice.

That would explain their plug for Monastery Icons.

I was going to say they should just become Episcopalian, but I'm not sure that they even have reincarnation as a fringe belief.

I agree, I’m actually a former Baptist myself :slight_smile:


#9

Why would he attend a mass to a Church that is not in communion with Rome?


#10

My thoughts exactly. He would risk much attending such a horrid service (can’t even call it a Mass since they are not in Communion and are no longer Catholic).
