Atheist minister in Christian denomination gets to keep her job leading congregation: ‘Wonderful’

No, this is NOT satire, even though it sounds like something from the Babylon Bee…

An atheist minister in a Christian denomination got to keep her job leading a congregation after several years of turmoil that could have led to a “heresy trial” later this month, the Toronto Star reported.

The Rev. Gretta Vosper — with the theologically liberal United Church of Canada — said in a Friday interview she’s free to minister at West Hill United Church in Toronto after a confidential settlement with the denomination, the paper reported.

“It’s going to be wonderful,” she told the Star. “We’ll be out from underneath that heavy cloud. Now we’ll be able to really fly.”
