Father Cutié Joining Episcopal Church

That was father Alberto Cutié in the corner. That was him in the spotlight. And now he's losing his religion. 

The celebri-priest got caught in a tabloid scandal when pictures surfaced of the holy man getting awfully cozy with a lady on the beach. He soon confessed to dating the woman for years and that he would like to marry her. Unfortunately, the Catholic Church doesn't allow that kind of thing. 

So now Cutié is joining the Episcopalian Church, a church that came into existence, in part, because some English king wanted to get divorced, and ironically Cutié is joining it in order to marry. He will not automatically become a priest but will have a special place as a lay minister. It should be interesting to see how many, if any, followers also make the switch. 

The Herald reports the official ceremony will go down this afternoon, and shortly afterward, Cutié will announce his wedding intentions. 

Unlike the Catholic Church, the Episcopalian Church doesn't care whom its priests sleep with, as long as it's in a responsible, respectful way. Episcopalians even have a gay bishop and lady priests.
