'Wimpy Award' goes to Bishop Michael Sheridan

(AP) COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Bishop Michael Sheridan has apologized for remarks by his assistant that Roman Catholics shouldn't attend Protestant worship services because they could "confuse" some Catholics.

Sheridan's executive assistant, Peter Howard, also told The Gazette of Colorado Springs this week that Catholic participation in Protestant services denigrates the Catholic faith. He made similar comments in an Oct. 7 article in the diocesan newspaper.

In a letter regarding Howard's comments to The Gazette, Sheridan said Howard is free to express his views but said he doesn't agree with them.

The L.A. Catholic 'Wimpy Award" should not be confused with THIS.

Maybe Bishop Sheridan should read

I don't understand why anyone would want a "snack" when they can have a 7-Course Meal.

Amazing. After his very Catholic stand against moral evils during the election, Sheridan suddenly seems to forget that he IS a Catholic.
