Worth repeating
You know that a church is freelancing when its website has a page called "The Apostolic Succession of [BISHOP'S NAME]." In that case, apostolic succession gives a certain bouquet of sanctity, of being grounded in tradition, without the tiresome requirement of actually maintaining that tradition.
- Jan Bear (with whom I disagree on some issues) on vagantes, fakers with mitres
