inter-religious dialogue with a mirror
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jun 19, 2007
From the Seattle Times comes this edifying story about Rev. Ann Holmes Redding, an Episcopalian priestess who is a Muslim.
Confused? You shouldn't be.
Redding's bishop, the Rt. Rev. Vincent Warner, says he accepts Redding as an Episcopal priest and a Muslim, and that he finds the interfaith possibilities exciting.
Very exciting. You can schedule an interfaith dialogue, and just ask Rev. Redding to talk with herself. Saves on the catering bills.
But while I'm happy to hear that the Episcopalian leadership in Seattle accepts this groundbreaking religious figure, I wonder how her dual-loyalty act would play in Riyadh.
