Who Needs Credentials?

Tragedy in the nation's capital : pastor snubs both church and state!


The town of Bancroft, and its surrounding communities, are reeling today after the bombshell dropped that a popular United Church minister ignored her credentials being revoked four years ago, and then went on to conduct dozens of marriages that were never legally registered.

"My son and daughter-in-law want the date of their wedding to be legally recognized by the province -- for their sake and for their child's sake," the Bancroft-area woman-of-the-groom said. "But, right now, they are at a loss as to what to do. Everyone is simply in shock."

"Peterborough Presbytery and Bay of Quinte Conference also said that I should never have been ordained. Once again, they are correct. To that end, I am instructing the United Church of Canada to revoke my ordination."

Uhh, Maggi... they did that in 2001. But I'm interested in the one question the journalist who wrote the story didn't seem too interested in asking : What about all those people who are, obviously, living in sin? Will they be joining their pastor in hell as punishment for believing her in the first place?
