Burning Question

When Bishop John Shelby Spong dies, will four million people throng Newark? Maybe Christianity needn't "change or die."

[UPDATE from Mr. T.: Great minds think alike.Uwe Siemon-Netto notes: "'We need a visible church, and the Catholic Church is it. The pope is the leader of all the world's Christians,' agreed Robert Benne, a Lutheran theologian heading the Center for Religion and Society in Salem, Va.

'When in the history of the world did 4 million people ever show up anywhere voluntarily?' asked Benne. 'Who on the other hand would come for a funeral of Bishop (John Shelby) Spong?'"]
