from virtueonline:

"In July 2006, VOL first broke the story http://tinyurl.com/475zrno raising troubling questions about PB Elect Katharine Jefferts Schori's ministry.

"An investigation into the background and credentials of incoming Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori listed her major qualifications as: Pastoral Associate and Dean, Good Samaritan School of Theology Corvallis, OR,(six years) and Priest-in Charge, Good Samaritan, Corvallis, OR.

"However, on examination of her credentials, VOL concluded that none of the sources showed any evidence that the 'Good Samaritan School of Theology' existed as an independent organization with staff or facilities. There was no mention of the school or of the titles or positions (Dean, Pastoral Associate) associated with the school."

The good thing about Wikipedia is the ability to correct factual errors once they are identified. Revisions are a common occurrence.

For example the reference to the present Bishop of Rome contains this information in Wikipedia.

Following his 14th birthday in 1941, Ratzinger was conscripted into the Hitler Youth as membership was required by law for all 14-year old German boys after December 1939[9] but was an unenthusiastic member who refused to attend meetings, according to his brother.[10]

Joe you have argued vigorously in the past that Bishop Ratzinger was never a member of Hitler Youth. One wonders how objective his brother is a source since he himself is priest in the Church of Rome. The bracketed numbers are the source references listed in the article.

What does Wiki have to say about the Good Samaritan School of Theology?
