the shot heard 'round disney world

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 07, 2009

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles just elected a lesbian suffragan bishop. The Archbishop of Canterbury, thoughtfully stroking his chin, ponders the ecclesiological implications:

The election of Mary Glasspool by the Diocese of Los Angeles as suffragan bishop elect raises very serious questions not just for the Episcopal Church and its place in the Anglican Communion, but for the Communion as a whole.

Serious questions indeed. At a state dinner, does the live-in partner of a lesbian suffragan bishop have precedence over the divorced daughter of a transgendered viscount? After Sesame Street debuts a gay puppetess with a crosier, does Lambeth Palace get a cut of the royalties? Can we rewrite the first chapter of Romans in time for the papal visit? The future of the Communion is at stake.

    It poses "questions"? How about "PROBLEMS"?!?!

    I am shocked -- SHOCKED -- that you would denigrate and demean Disney World by comparing it with the Anglican Communion! Is nothing sacred?

    To borrow a line from General Pickett - "General Lee, The Communion has no future."

    Some of your questions are real posers, Diogenes. But the answer to whether we can rewrite Romans is, sure. Easy.
