He becomes an Episcopalian and enters the priesthood.
Jim McGreevey, the former New Jersey love gov, has gone from Turnpike truck stops to All Saints Church in Hoboken, where he is known as Father Jim.
Last Sunday, the ex governor administered the sacrament of baptism to a bevy of babies, blessed the Eucharist, and carried the cross during the processional.
In 2004, Mr. McGreevey resigned as Governor of New Jersey after revealing that he is gay and has had an adulterous relationship with another man.
At the time of his resignation with his wife by his side, Democratic Gov. McGreevey said: "At a point in every person's life, one has to look deeply into the mirror of one's soul and decide one's unique truth in the world, not as we may want to see it or hope to see it, but as it is. And so, my truth is that I am a gay American.
The gay American enrolled in a master of divinity program at the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church in Chelsea in 2007. As part of his education, he started an 18-month training program at All Saints in April and is expected to stay until his graduation next spring.

No humor tag, guess its real.
...Just another milepost we pass as we cartwheel into the abyss.....
This is not from Scrappleface or the Onion, eh.
Another scar on the political face of NJ. Gosh, I hate this state.
How many other sins does his church celebrate?
Seems reasonable. One usually finds the predator right next to its prey in nature.

While governor of New Jersey, it’s rumored that Jim McGreevey used to go to truck stops looking for men to have relations with.
Well, this is gross as all get out. A lot of the truckers at truck stops are very smelly. Some have gone days and days without a shower. That’s not very conducive to amorous feelings and you would think a well paid gay guy like the ex-governor would seek out a higher clientele.
No offense to truckers, but I feel the same way toward “lot lizards”.
What do you say about something like this? insanity...
“Go and sin some more”
This is one for the headlines.
How much more evidence is needed to see that humanity (collectively) has truly been demon possessed?
Since liberalism is a religion this doesn’t surprise me.
A perfect “church” for someone like him.
2 Peter 2
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not....
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray...
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
And now he is a MINISTER!!??
Don't the Episcopalians have ANY standards anymore??
Oh, just forget I asked...
It’s not even a church anymore, just another political organization - and a nauseating one at that. I finally couldn’t deal anymore and bailed.
Is it just me or does he look too much like Ralm Emanuel?
>”A perfect church for someone like him.”
True. Where else can someone make such an “impact” on young, tender boys?
Gee, I thought this was as good as N.J. politics get.
He was going to rest stops on the N.J. Tpke. & having what a former Pres. said was not sex through holes in the panels separating the stalls. I don’t know if he was a pitcher or a catcher in this game but he did play on a pro level. He was probably good at both positions.
Figures it’d be the Episcopagans.
Oh what a RELIEF!... For a moment I thought... never mind... too horrible to think about it...
Just because he liked to play ball, doesn't mean he had a decent batting average or ERA; probably also had an unusually high rate of fouls.
He did seem to be fairly proficient at sliding home, even though most of his hits were single-baggers.
Didn't most of his games get rained out?
Now that he has changed leagues, one has to wonder if he is still a starter; or is just mostly a bench warmer or designated runner. Maybe even just a bat boy.
So he's a religious faggot now?
Thanks for the links. As one 2004 poster noted---Tony Soprano calls the author Prince Matchabelli. LOL.
Is the Episcopal Church somewhat similar to the Catholic Church? My grandmother,who’s a Lutheran,told me they are.
I feel bad for the straight men who had to go potty!
