Superstitious organisation calls another a fraud.

United States: The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta is having trouble keeping up with the competition, and has filed a lawsuit accusing a rival (Spanish-language) church of falsely claiming to be Roman Catholic. It seems the Roman Catholic Church feels that Hispanic immigrants are too stupid to notice that Capilla de la Fe is somewhet different from the churches they are used to:

In downtown Atlanta, Capilla de la Fe holds services at a Stop Suffering Center, where pamphlets in Spanish tout the cure-all effects of holy water available with a donation.
Some Capilla de la Fe services are unlike anything offered at Roman Catholic parishes, including one focusing on strong prayer to destroy witchcraft, demon-possession, nightmares, curses, envy, bad luck or spiritual problems.

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

Allowed HTML: a href, b, br, p, strong, em, ol, ul, li, blockquote, q, pre. If your name has accents in it, things will (hopefully!) work better if you use the XHTML entities for those letters. The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them. Garbled comments usually get deleted.
