Ex-NJ Gov McGreevey training to become priest (Episcopal)
The New York Post ^ | 11-15-09 | ANGELA MONTEFINISE

Posted on 11/15/2009 4:17:42 PM PST by Justaham

"Gay American" Jim McGreevey is spending his Sunday mornings with a new man -- Jesus.

The former New Jersey love gov has gone from Turnpike rest stops to the church rostrum as part of his training to become an Episcopal priest, working each weekend at All Saints Church in Hoboken.

McGreevey -- who resigned from office in disgrace in 2004 -- isn't far enough along in his seminary studies to actually give sermons, but he assists the Rev. Geoffrey Curtiss at three Masses on Sunday and participates in parish programs, donation drives and activities.

In the age of "Bishop" Vickie Imogene Robinson and his sodomite partner, that is not a very long distance at all. Just around the bend you might say, for an episcopalian.

What McGreevey should have said at that famous press conference:

"My truth is, that I am a Selfish-Jerk-American."

I hope he washes his hands really well before giving out communion. Never know where they have been.

I hope it turns into a real conversion and he repents of sin...but:

2Ti 3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2Ti 3:2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
2Ti 3:4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
2Ti 3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

“He’s a very very troubled man.”

Is that the new euphemism for sleazebag”?

Not really a new story

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-05-02-mcgreevey-seminary_N.htm

except to say that neither the Episcopal Church nor the Gay American seem to have changed their minds about each other.

I guess he won't be one of those accepting the Pope's invitation.

Father McGreevey will be hearing confessions in the fifth stall of the Men’s Room at the Clara Barton Service Area on the New Jersey Turnpike.

"I'm grateful for my brokenness," he told the newspaper. "I'm grateful for my humility. It's a blessing."

I hope he really means it.

The power of Christ can transform, even a dirt bag like McGreevy

At his services, only half the Congregation will be kneeling.

Where are the usual suspects who go apesh*t over the terrible wrongs committed by queer priests in the Catholic Church?

Cheers!

He’s going into the priesthood for all the wrong reasons. Smorgasbord! The Episcopals have no problem with this???
