ROME, June 8 (UPI) — A 76-year-old Catholic archbishop who strayed and married a Korean acupuncturist, but later returned to the fold has released a CD of Zambian soul music.
Monsignor Emmanuel Milingo will perform songs from it with his band, The Emmanuel Milingo Experience, at the four-day Porretta Soul Festival outside Bologna beginning July 22, Italy’s ANSA news agency reported.
He’ll be in the company of some big names in Soul music, including the Neville Brothers, Irma Thomas and Bobby Purify, the report said.
The Emmanuel Milingo Experience? I guess they won’t be doing The Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are you experienced." Though you could slightly alter the lyrics to Christianize it.
Ohhh, but are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Not necessarily atoned, but beautiful
Wish he were coming to the Chicago Blues Fest. Or Taste of Chicago. Would love to check out his “Ecclesiastical Purple Haze.” There’s still RibFest in Naperville….
Let us just hope Sr. Joan Chittister is not able to find his body of work available at the next karaoke bar.
This reminds me of how the current Abbot Primate over the Benedictine Order is also in a rock band. (And a pretty lame one at that).
Man, that ain’t working. Get your money for nothing and your Korean chicks for free.
When Vegas was betting on the papal succession, were there odds on Archbishop Milingo?
Its not Purple Haze its his incense.
Well, he might just sit next to Judas in Hell.

OOOOH!How TERRIBLE…. I cant think of something more cruel than a bishop who sings or a monk who plays guitar. If someone has to sit beside Judas, then massmurderers like those guys.
I hope someone know what sarcasm is.
Bishop Milingo has been missing from the Vatican for sometime. Anybody know if they have found him yet?
