Oakland Catholics Get Their Nasty On



What is it with Catholics and their morbid fascination with the dead? Now that the new Lake Merritt cathedral is up and running, the Oakland diocese celebrated it on Sunday by digging up the corpse of its first bishop, hauling it down the aisle, and burying its mouldering bones in the church floor. "It's very moving," parishoner Annabella Lolohea told the Trib. Yeah, as in moving our bowels in the wrong direction. You don't see us digging up our uncle every time we pick up and move, do you?
