It’s stories like this…

that make me grateful to have a Magisterium and a bit of quality control due to being  part of a big old Church where certain stuff is Simply Not the Done Thing.  It is not (obviously) a system without flaws and, as kooks like Abp Milingo demonstrate from time to time, kooks can be put in charge.  But on the whole, it tends to select against erratic improvisers who tell people “Today let’s all go eat grass like goats because I say so!”

    The eating grass part is weird (If people can survive on whatever they choose, I’m choosing bacon, coffee, butter, and dark chocolate), but some of the later parts of the article get downright scary–that part about people falling asleep when he orders them to, especially.

    I always wonder if pastors like this one get a kick out of the power they wield over their congregations. And if he thought, I wonder if I can make them eat grass. Ditto on the lack of a lawn mower. This church would be handy in that regard.
