Question of the Day
Baltimore church joins Catholic Church
BALTIMORE | A Baltimore church has decided to leave the Episcopal Church and join the Roman Catholic Church, citing concerns over the ordination of women and homosexuals as well as fundamental religious differences.
Warren Tanghe, a former Episcopal priest now preparing for ordination in the Catholic Church, said parishioners voted Sunday at Mount Calvary Episcopal Church. Mr. Tanghe said members were also upset with clergy who questioned beliefs such as the Holy Trinity.
An archdiocese spokesman said the Catholic Church would welcome the congregation.
However, church members will have to negotiate with the Episcopal Diocese to keep their church building. Under Episcopal canons, the property is held in trust for the diocese and national church, but the parish holds the deed.
Drugmaker to pay $750M in pill case
BOSTON | Federal prosecutors say British drugmaker GlaxoSmith-Kline will pay $750 million to settle allegations that its subsidiary manufactured and sold adulterated drugs, including the popular antidepressant Paxil.
U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz on Tuesday announced that GlaxoSmithKline has agreed to settle civil and criminal charges related to the subsidiary in Puerto Rico.
Miss Ortiz said the London-based company will pay $150 million in criminal fines and $600 million in civil penalties.
In 2005, GlaxoSmithKline agreed to fix deficiencies at its now-closed plant in Cidra, Puerto Rico, that allowed tablets of Paxil to split apart before reaching consumers.
