From the U.K. Telegraph.

The other day, the Rt Rev Victor Manuel Rivera laid hands on his daughter Nedi - not in violence but as part of her consecration as Bishop of Olympia, in Washington state. Oddly enough, Bishop Rivera had opposed her ordination as a priest, and she remains unsure of his opinion now. "If I can receive half his blessing, that's great," she said. "But I feel I've received it all."

Isn't that how Esau got started?
