Amid talk of a merger between Catholicism and Anglicanism, The Economist takes a look at how the two businesses might fit together…

In a time when the anglican church is regularly in the news with stories about discrimination, I don’t think a majority of catholics would like to see their church being united with those bigots. Ratzinger already is a heavy burden on catholics, we don’t need more of his kind.
Looks like the economist can’t find more important topics to fill the pages. Merger? Ridiculous! Just think about what this would mean for Northern Ireland. UIt might even start a new civil war. Idiotic.
1.119 billion catholics, 0.08 billion anglicists? This would be even less of a merger than DaimlerChrysler…
Don’t the Anglicans ordain women? Also I recall that a certain sector of the American Anglican church broke away to join the “Gays should be dead” branch of the African of the Anglican Church (you will be known by the company you keep) while another was ordaining homosexuals. I don’t see anything wrong with this, certainly I favor better treatment of women and gays but since I really don’t believe in any of it, it’s mostly all the same to me. Still, if they were to merge how would that work? Would the catholic church have to start ordaining women? Would the Anglicans have to stop? Do Anglican priests marry?
Did President East, I mean Bush, have anything at all to do with this? I think it bears looking into
