From Bovina Bloviator:

An RC friend sent the pic above, taken in front of the Episcopal church in his suburban New Jersey neighborhood (in Bp. Spong’s vibrant Diocese of Newark), expressing bemusement. Well, dear Brother, it’s like this: the Episcopal Church is desperately trying to attract younger membership because the actuarial tables are stacked against her. By incorporating the music of the likes of U2 into the Mass (as do ageing Catholics thumping for the Post Vatican II reforms), they hope to lure more young people into the churches; young people who won’t be turning fifty for at least a couple of years.
