comment Can a Catholic priest take Anglican services?
This means that it is possible that a bishop was ordained a priest invalidly but a valid bishop was there for the consecration. Since a man must be a priest to be a bishop these lines start getting very muddled very quickly.

comment Can a Catholic priest take Anglican services?
@brasshat Anglicans recognize RCC orders. RCC view Anglicans as "maybe they're ordained, maybe they aren't." This is because of a change in the rite of ordination (which invalidated their orders) combined with the fact that the Old Catholics (a group from the Netherlands I think) later started participating in the consecration of Anglican bishops. Since the Old Catholic had valid orders, then a bishops ordination is conditional on whether he was ordained by a valid bishop and consecrated by a valid bishop.

comment According to Catholic tradition, why doesn't God the Father punish ISIS?
@JimG. Not a chance. Christ, the ruler of the universe, was subjected to pain and torture. He then asked forgiveness for the perpetrators. I think the people killing God rank pretty low, possibly lower than ISIS. Yet Jesus forgave. And that forgiveness was purposeful. And Christ's death was the greatest good. Ergo: evil does happen in favor of a greater good. QAD.

My understanding is that they are conditionally ordained, as the apostolic succession is ambiguous at best.

comment Catholic Church's History Reflects The life of Christ?
Late middle ages – You mean like when Thomas Acquinas and Francis of Assisi preached? No? What about Catherine of Sienna? Or perhaps you refer to the Renaissance writer Thomas Moore? The hierarchy had its failings, but saying the "Church was corrupt" is a generalization of the worst kind.

comment What is the difference between AME and AME Zion Churches
But how are they different? Are they different? I've read the Wikipedia entries and am still wondering.

comment Why are wise men common in contemporary [American] nativity scenes?
@MattGutting The Nativity set is attributed to St. Francis Assissi. He most certainly would have expected a 12 day liturgical season.

comment Why isn't the Eucharist of protestant churches considered valid by non-protestants?
@thedarkwanderer Ok. My point is that Leo XIII's bull is of dubious relevance here.

comment What is the biblical argument against baptism by sprinkling/pouring?
I don't think it was obvious that the eunuch would have been carrying water at all – he might have had wine.
