"There must be close to 40,000 ex-Catholic denominations out there..."

Fixed it. A regular algae-bloom of Protestantism, I reckon.

It's almost always about sex. Reckon they'll go pro-polygamy within the year.


Whoa, that was quick. I hesitated for a sec, thinking it might be snarky or even slanderous to mention polygamy when I really didn't know. So I googled "reformed catholic" and "polygamy," and found the following interesting article (Link).

Money quote:

"A lavish wedding ceremony is being prepared for a priest who has rebelled against the Catholic Church in western Kenya.

Father Godfrey Shiundu, who joined a more accommodating Catholic splinter church called the Reformed Catholic Church (RCC) four years ago, is marrying his long-time girlfriend in Kitale on Sunday.

The RCC is a US-based Catholic breakaway group that allows its clergy to marry and openly accepts polygamy, making it an accommodating alternative for some African cultures.

Announcing his forthcoming nuptials, Father Shiundu said he is going to slaughter 10 bulls for some 1,000 guests he expects at the celebrations.

What'd I tell ya?!!

Nah.

Just the Catholic tradition of syncretism.
