McGreevey mulling Episcopal priesthood Posted by The Star-Ledger May 02, 2007 12:08PM Categories: News
Patti Sapone/The Star-Ledger Former Gov. James E. McGreevey appears during custody proceedings in the Union County Courthouse last week.Former Gov. James E. McGreevey has started the process to become a priest in his newly adopted Episcopal faith and hopes to begin a three-year seminary program in the fall.
McGreevey, who often described himself as a devout Catholic while in public office, was officially received into the Episcopal religion on Sunday, at St. Bartholomew's Church in Manhattan, and is now part of the church's "discernment" phase that usually precedes any seminary work, said the Rev. Kevin Bean, vicar at St. Bartholomew.

Just go away....
What could be better? How about the BILL CLINTON RAPE HOTLINE?
You aren’t going to believe this!!
Satire is less funny when it actually happens in real life.
Oh my! My former church continues its decent into godless decandence.
Your church has the gay priests and mine has the child molestor priests. Pretty disgusting.
Oh, yeah, I guess now the Episcopalians need their own “gay priest” scandals!!
Interesting in light of all that the Catholic Church has gone through in recent years...... how could any “church” willingly accept someone of McGreevey’s background (admitted stranger gay sex at highway rest-stops, etc.) to the priesthood???
I don’t know about your diocese, but ours got rid of the child molesters back in the 80s. They are in prison, exiled in remote monasteries, or dead.
Scrappleface?..........The Onion?.........MAD TV?..........SNL?..............NO, IT’s FOR FREAKIN’ REAL!...........
marvelous...another faggot priest waiting to rape young boys. Why not a Boy Scout leader?
Anyone see his wife on Oprah yesterday? Holy smokes, and God forgive me, but his wife is, well, lacking a certain amount of gray matter.
However, it was fun to watch as Oprah tried to pry information out of her. My word, it was like grabbing smoke.
Oprah’s last question: “Are you still healing?”

Does this mean he has to divest from his Israeli boyfriend?
This is actually classic behavior.
Many homosexuals try to escape their demons by running into the ‘priesthood’ thinking that it will help them stop.
It rarely does anything more than increase the number of homosexual priests.
(McGreevey has plenty of practice kneeling.)
The Episcopal Church has an openly gay Bishop.
Why am I not surprised? Dear Fatherly God, why have you forsaken us suffering Episcopalians?
Is this suitable for your Anglican ping list?
I don't know, but I have a guess.
“Because unlike limp-wristed “church” denominations that have abandoned all moral sense, the Boy Scouts stand firm, embrace truth, and reject decadence.:
As an assistant Scout Master I agree with the two leader deep regulation. Their are plenty of wolves in sheep clothing out there who would love nothing better than to get near a bunch of young boys. Every now and then one does sneak in and the consequences are terrible.
I guess he likes all those fabulous robes....
"A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident." -- Proverbs 14:16
So I am guessing it was the “secular” Mr. McGreevey who exposed his 5 year old child to gay portraiture over the bed?
I can’t wait for the movie, “Swinging My Way” with Bing Crosby as Father McGreevey.
But still pretty typical of the lefties.
Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.
FReepmail Huber if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by Huber.

I suspect before long, McGreevey will become suicidal and off himself......in drag.
McGreevey is a uer and a kook and he is just using every scam he can to make money and gain prominence.
Amen, Tony. His will be done.
"Be not afraid, only believe." -- Mark 5:36
On the plus side, McGreevy is giving gay marriage a bad name. You know he had to be ordered not to sleep in bed with his lover and daughter, and to take down a nude photo in the bedroom. What a messed up degenerate.
when I saw the headline, I was sure it was scrappleface or the onion. But I guess this is too bizarre even for them.

A good one!
Coming from N.J., I needed a good laugh.
To their credit the BSA has taken the arrows and stood up to the homo-lobby and pressure groups and sttod firm on principle.
This is scrapple face right???
Does McGreevey realize that “Episcopal” is an anagram for “Pepsi Cola”?
EPISCOPAL NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT THE SAME AS Roman Catholic. So do not go there.
The two deserve each other.
All I wanted, in the world, was to be a catholic priest. Live in a monastery, pray, serve God. I had one fuc***'... one terrible fuc***' weakness. And they defrocked me!
“Did McGreevey renounce his unnatural vice?”
Why should he do that? The Episcopal Church’s new morality is “let er rip” “Anything goes”
Maybe he’ll be ordained by the queer bishop who left his wife and family to shack up with a man.
Two peas in a pod.
The only "unnatural vice" proscribed by today's Episcopal Church is Christian faith.
One of the Bishops in the ECUSA was elected to that office after having left his wife and daughters for another man. He is now planning to wed his current male lover. So McGreevey should have a great future with the Episcopalians.
I can’t stop laughing.
I didn't know you were in the Presbyterian Church USA.
Church shaken by sex charges vs. ex-ass't pastor
What, you thought he was going to take up an honest job?
