This is too nutty for words - the Roman Catholic church is bring back "indulgences", you know, one of those crazy ideas of purchasing forgiveness that helped spark the reformation.
The Church has done so many crazy things lately I could nearly keep a blog just pointing them out but this one really made me slap my head. Even the recent business of offending every Jew and 'fact based' person on the planet didn't really surprise me.
What's next? Geocentricism?
