This has left me speechless. You will NEVER guess who these guys are:
Backers say promotion helps value leadership”
The title of bishop, accompanied by such emblems of authority, was uncommon among hierarchy-spurning Baptists until recently, but it is being adopted by a growing number of Baptist pastors, most of them African-American. Borders and other new bishops have acquired some of the ceremonial garb — croziers (pastoral staffs), zucchettos (skullcaps) and chasubles (robes) — that their spiritual forefathers left behind when they broke from the Church of England in the 17th century. Some, including Borders, have even embraced the doctrine of apostolic succession — the belief in an unbroken line from Jesus’ apostles to today’s bishops.
This is quite a development. Well. I don’t see how they can continue to be critical of the authority issues in the Catholic Church. Perhaps this will be a step towards unity. I can hope.
Nothing is impossible with God.
