Confusing Messages... Gee, ya think?

The Vatican has put a stop to a joint Pentecostal service planned by ... Catholic and Anglican bishops [in Australia.]

The confirmation service was scheduled for May 31 at Christ Church Cathedral, and was promoted as a "very exciting and special" event.

Parishes encouraged church members to consider being confirmed on that day.

But Rome intervened, forcing its cancellation, citing the possibility of "confusing messages" being given to churchgoers.

It is unclear how the headquarters of the Catholic Church learned of the service, as no formal notification was given.

Another sad story, I'm afraid.
