Cardinal "Call Me Sean" O'Malley, of course!

But he had to pay the piper. Remember this one from back in January?

Near the end of an ecumenical service at Sudbury United Methodist Church Sunday (January 2013), Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Boston, dipped his thumb into a glass bowl of consecrated water and made the sign of the cross on the forehead of the Rev. Anne Robertson, a United Methodist minister who was about to offer the same gesture to the overflow crowd in the church hall.

And then O’Malley asked Robertson to do the same for him. She stood before this prince of the Roman Catholic Church, a prelate who is considered the closest American adviser to the pope...She traced a cross on his forehead and said the ritual words, a reaffirmation of baptism from the United Methodist hymnal: “Remember your baptism and be thankful.”

Robertson said she was so moved that she could hardly speak for hours afterward.

What a fool Bishop John Fisher -- SAINT John Fisher, that is -- must have been!  Right, Cardinal Sean?  If only he (like you) could have just lightened up a bit on all that 'scary heresy' gibberish he could have kept his head.
