Rev. Cannon Mary GlasspoolFrom the New York Times

A majority of bishops and dioceses of the Episcopal Church have approved the election of the church’s second openly gay bishop, the Rev. Mary D. Glasspool, a decision likely to increase the tension with fellow Anglican churches around the world that do not approve of homosexuality.

Congratulations Bishop Glasspool

A BIG congrats to Rev. Mary D. Glasspool! And the Episcopal church!

Even though I’m an atheist. Congrats anyway!

Equality anywhere is equality everywhere!

Those who have been persecuted and at the heel of societal opression will surely make The Best Of spiritual leaders, not those white old straight men who have arrogantly controlled it in the past without an ounce of compassion nor understanding.

Unless I’m missing something, this was announced/confirmed last December 6th (2009) – not new news…….

She was elected in December, but that selection was confirmed by the Bishops and dioceses this month.

This confirmation is the Biggie, the action that will really piss off the anti-gay Anglican leaders.
