First things first
The Episcopal convention, having approved the appointment of a bishop who is engaged in a same-sex union, will now take up the question of whether same-sex unions are a good thing.
Leaving aside the objective merits of the case(s), doesn't it strike you that, logically, the questions should have been taken up in a different sequence?

The three books were: "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance," "Everything I Ever Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten," and, of course, Erma Bombeck's classic "The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank." Oh, and there was a John Chick pamplet on the urinal in the bathroom, but I don't think it was part of the collection.

I don't think logic is where we need to start with this. In order to fully understand what's happening with the Episcopalians we have to have a grounding in Christo-pagan theology. Having spent many days in the bowels of the Episcopal Theology Library (a large Gothic building with miles of bookshelves but, curiously, only three books) I have been able to distill the essence this theology and its ordering of human relations: "I get to do whatever I want and if you leave you lose your retirement!"
