Gay Episcopal bishop to preach at San Francisco Catholic parish

November 22, 2011

A notoriously 'gay-friendly' parish in San Francisco has invited an openly homosexual Episcopalian cleric to lead an Advent Vespers service.

Most Holy Redeemer parish asked Bishop Otis Charles, a retired Episcopalian prelate, to lead the November 30 service. After serving as the Bishop of Utah from 1971 to 1993, he publicly announced that he is homosexual. Divorced from the mother of his 5 children, he solemnized a same-sex union in 2004.

    Time to re-evaluate the the Diocese of San Francisco and its leadership. Also, take a close look at the clergy assigned to the parish.
