Congratulations to Pope Benedict on His Apotheosis

GetReligion contributor tmatt laughed out loud at this howler from The Toronto Star (now MIA from their website), and so did I:

Though most in the Coptic Orthodox community send their children to Catholic school, they are not Catholic themselves. The differences are slight ā€” they use the same liturgies, though Orthodox Christians differ from Roman Catholics in their belief that the Pope is a human being, not a divine figure ā€” which has meant Coptic Orthodox children most often are sent to Catholic school.

So, maybe Jack Chick has been right all along? Or maybe he wrote this article?

Of course, I’d never send my kid to a school that tried to shoehorn the pope into some kind of Trinity-plus-One arrangement, either.
