The Daily Standard has a post about the fact that the Episcopal Church elected its first female presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori. She’s a rather typical modern Leftist, although her casual dismissal of Jesus as the path to Heaven, as well as her referring to the “Mother Jesus” are both a little surprising coming from a Christian prelate.
I really have nothing to add to the article itself, but it did remind me of a young woman I met many, many years ago when I was a young professional in a fairly major metropolitan area. She had just been ordained as an Episcopal priest. She was nice enough, although she had a somewhat “holier than thou” attitude. I had that attitude turned on me one day when I opined that I thought rubbing cocaine on your gums was a bad idea. She impaled me with a gimlet glare, opined that it was a very pleasant feeling indeed, and then returned to the guy she was chatting up at the bar. I didn’t realize it then, but I think I was witnessing the beginning of the end of the Episcopal Church.
