BELIEVE IT OR NOT! HALF CROCODILE AND HALF ANGLICAN BISHOP, MAKING CROCODILES LOOK SILLY AND BAPTISM DOWN RIGHT DANGEROUS!

This speaks for itself! Anglicans should immediately rid themselves of silly mitres but I like the versatile copes and dry or wet use!

Story is sad…but true, ”Tanzanian police have detained a pastor after two worshippers drowned while being baptised in a river near Rombo in the north of the country.

The two victims were overwhelmed by the current of the River Ungwasi, a police spokesman has told the BBC.

It is not clear how the pastor and the other worshippers involved managed to survive, the BBC's Odeo Sirari says.

They are members of a local church, Shalom, which is part of the charismatic Christian movement.

Baptism in a river rather than in church is seen as a way of re-enacting the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan.

The ceremony is a symbol of washing away sin and the start of a new life.”

I saw a similar story here in the USA a few years ago. The congregation was cheering for the person being baptised so the priest kept dunking the poor soul until he drowned.

A new theology of Baptism in which you wash away both the sins and the sinner. Cool...
