    Hurrah. This will hopefully cause even further damage to the anglican church. Anything that damages religion is to be celebrated in my opinion

  2. Oh dear; wot will the Arch Druid of Canterbury make of this one then!!!???

  3. “The Episcopal Church will only ordain gay and lesbian bishops in committed relationships, rather than those who are single.”

    Bravo! That’s an even bigger slap in the face for Williams and Nazir-Ali.

  4. The Episcopal Church has decided to move boldly into the latter twentieth century and may even make it into the 21st sometime soon. Meanwhile, the “Mother” church boldly marches toward the dark ages with Akinola and the third world “Sinners in the Hands of and Angry God” crusaders.

    Episcopals are coming of age and bidding Good Riddance, to the King/Queen, Arch Bishop and the Church of England as they should have done centuries ago.

    Bishop Gene Robinson helped to blaze this trail they are beginning to take up in these Gay noninations. I have always been proud of being a Gay Christian and these Gay Clergy nominations fill me with satisfaction.

  6. Why must they be in ‘committed relationships’, whatever that means? I am straight and single, which means I could be appointed Bishop. Why not a single Gay priest? There’s still work to be done…

    Hah. Another nail in the coffin.

    It’s such fun watching Canterbury and Akinola whine and writhe. They know that their chances of being accepted by jebuz cristos Inc., the roman cult, are getting slimmer every day.

  8. I don’t know where you’ve got this idea that only gay clergy in partnerships can become bishops in the Episcopal Church: I think your reporter has mis-read something somewhere. There’s been no document that says that non-partnered gay people could become bishops, in any church – there are several in the Church of England, for example.

  9. Sorry, I meant “…that non-partnered gay people COULDN’T become bishops…”
