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.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    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
