Pointless debate results in amicable compromise. Sounds like an Onion headline, don't you think? Well, I guess the good news here is that after 500 years, two divisions of the Christian church that are almost indistinguishable to many people, have finally agreed on a compromise position and that "Catholic beliefs about Mary, revered as the Blessed Virgin, are compatible with Anglican traditions and that division over doctrine could end".

Heady stuff, no? With this kind of healing power, surely a solution to the rifts between Christianity and Islam can be found, oh, within the next 6,000 years or so.
