Six Nuns Excommunicated

LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (AP) -- Six Catholic nuns have been excommunicated for heresy after refusing to give up membership in a Canadian sect whose founder claims to be possessed by the Virgin Mary, the Diocese of Little Rock announced.

The Rev. J. Gaston Hebert, the diocese administrator, said he notified the nuns of the decision Tuesday night after they refused to recant the teachings of the Community of the Lady of All Nations, also known as the Army of Mary.
Let's play What's Crazier:
  1. The Catholic Church is still using excommunication (i.e., God said "I'm not gonna be your friend anymore.")
  2. There's a cult leader who claims to be possessed by the Virgin Mary.
  3. Nuns from Arkansas believe the Canadian crackpot.
  4. There is any group anywhere that goes by the name "Army of Mary."
Personally, I'd like to see the Army of Mary, the Kiss Army, the Salvation Army, and Dick Armey have at it with a fierce couple rounds of Hungry Hungry Hippos. And then the cat o' nine tails comes out. Absolute madness.
