Action Alert!

a complete thunderbolt thing

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 03, 2007

Episcopal priest #1 admits that he really wasn't interested, at first, in dating Episcopal priest #2:

“I was assuming he would be pious and narrow-minded.”

Now that's an odd prejudice, isn't it? After all, #1, you're an Episcopal priest, and you're not overly pious, are you?

As for narrow-minded, well... Just search through the wedding announcements in the New York Times until you find the joyous news of the Winslow-Lewis ceremony, in which there were 4 Episcopal priests at the altar (if indeed there was an altar), and the one woman among them was not the bride. You might find a lot of terms to use for this ceremony, but "narrow-minded" isn't one of them.

But I know you can't wait to earn what happened to our hero, who was reluctant to date a pious narrow-minded cleric. I can't give away the whole story, but he did say:

“Our eyes met from across the apartment..."

And you know how the story goes from there, don't you?

Oh, no. Believe me, you don't.

    You know, I tend to be judgmental; trying to quit, just cannot.

    Interesting how there was no mention of God in the description he gave about his choosing to becoming a priest, his choosing to fight for "civil unions," his choosing to become "civilly unioned" himself, or in the advice he gives to the "couples" that he has "married." Seems a little odd, don't you think, considering he is a "priest"? But, then again, he is obviously not narrow minded enough to be concerned with such things. Best, Andrew W
