The Times ordains a porn star to the priesthood.
If you just about choked on your Cheerios reading the New York Times Style section this morning — "From Man of the Flesh to Man of the Cloth"! — be sure to read the followup report at the Episcopal News Service blog, EpiScope, which debunks all the parts of the story about Ronald Boyer (who until recently performed as "Rod Fontana") becoming a priest. The rector of the Episcopal church Boyer and his wife have been attending, Hank Mitchel, tells EpiScope that Boyer "has a long, long way to travel and a lot of spiritual growing to do before we can even think about thinking about a leadership role."
Update 7.22.07: The Times acknowledges the errors.
