It’s not uncommon for one corporation to buy out another. But it is uncommon when those corporations are church denominations. The Catholic Church is in talks with the Anglican Church to essentially buy them out. This may have something to do with a growing schism in the Anglican Church wherein conservative reactionaries aren’t happy with the church’s liberalizing its policies on women and gays, I think particularly that the church is acknowledging their rights to exist. So who better to unite with against this common enemy of women and gays than the Catholic Church.
