unblushing brides

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 03, 2011

The dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was married on January 1, in a ceremony held at St. Paul’s cathedral in Boston and witnessed by Bishop M. Thomas Shaw of the Episcopal diocese of Massachusetts. 

The dean’s spouse is a woman. That would be remarkable, given the current state of affairs in the Episcopal Church in Massachusetts, except for one thing: The dean is a woman, too.

Party A to the happy union (or perhaps she was Party B; you can’t tell the players without a scorecard) was Very Rev. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, whose name should be familiar to loyal readers. Party B was also a member of the Episcopal clergy. Mally Lloyd is listed as a “Canon to the Ordinary.” That sounds just about right.

    Are there any Episcopalians left who are not scandalized by this?
