Anglican and Roman Catholic bishops “sent out” for united mission
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Pope Francis have commissioned 19 pairs of Anglican and Roman Catholic bishops from across the world to take part in united mission in their local areas. The bishops, selected by the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (Iarccum) were “sent out” for mission together by the Pope and Archbishop from the same church were Pope Gregory sent Saint Augustine to evangelise the English in the sixth Century.
“Fourteen centuries ago Pope Gregory sent the servant of God, Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury, and his companions, from this holy place, to preach the joyful message of the Word of God,” Pope Francis told the bishops. “Today we send you, dear brothers, servants of God, with this same joyful message of his everlasting kingdom.”
Archbishop Justin Welby told them: “Our Saviour commissioned his disciples saying, ‘Peace be with you’. We too, send you out with his peace, a peace only he can give.
Hate to say it, but Christian bishop hats are way cooler than Atheist bishop hats.
The arc of the moral universe bends towards chaos.
People who believe God or History are on their side provide the chaos.

They're all a bunch of fucking idiots. Doesn't really matter now, what with Climate Change being all up in our face and everything, but, damn all those fucking sonsabitches straight to hell where they belong. If only such a place actually existed in order to send them all there... If not for them and their kind, we might have avoided a lot of this misery, including our own extinction.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
