    On Thursday, the College Fix reported that students at the Union Theological Seminary in Manhattan confessed their sins to plants during a chapel service that a campus spokesman described as a “beautiful, moving ritual.”

    “Today in chapel, we confessed to plants. Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor. What do you confess to the plants in your life?” the seminary said on Twitter, prompting a great deal of ridicule nationwide.
