Here’s the thing about the Satanic Temple: You think Christians don’t like them? Well, other Satanists really don’t like them because they’re misappropriating Satan in order to fight First Amendment cases… which is all well and good for atheists, but where’s the Satan worship, huh?!
I have to believe school board members in Orange County, Florida are rethinking their decision to allow all religious and non-religious groups to distribute their literature to schoolchildren, just so they could appease Bible-thumping Christians.
In the fifties, Sheen presented an Emmy-winning Catholic TV show that affected a young Dolan greatly. Sheen’s remains have been entombed in a crypt in New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral since 1979, the year of his death. The trouble is that the man was born in Peoria, Illinois, whose diocese lays claim to the body:
It has drawn up blueprints for an elaborate shrine in its main cathedral to house his tomb and sketched out an entire devotional campus it hopes to complete when its campaign to have him declared the first American-born male saint succeeds. … Now the dispute over Archbishop Sheen’s corpse has brought a halt to his rise to sainthood, just as he appeared close to beatification, the final stage before canonization. Bishop Daniel R. Jenky, Peoria’s leader, announced this month that the process had been suspended because New York would not release the body.
