The most interesting part of the story was that once he came out, his old church closed. Progress ! I wonder how many of the congregation will then say "You know, there are lots of things I could do on a Sunday if I don't have to sit on a hardwood pew for two hours."

The second most interesting part was that lots of congregations will now be starting to doubt that their cleric/minister will be among those losing their faith, and that he/she has just not come out yet.

Divide & conquer, to coin a phrase. Or, sowing dissension in the ranks. Too bad the announcer could not get the web site straight. Dot ORG, not dot COM.
