Action Alert!

There are limits...

By Diogenes (articles - email) | Jul 06, 2007

Perhaps you remember Rev. Ann Holmes Redding, the Episcopalian priestess who hass discovered that she is also a Muslim. We are pained to report that Bishop Geralyn Wolf of Rhode Island, who ordained Redding, has now suspended her from public ministry.

Bishop Wolf explains carefully that she wants Rev. Redding to spend some time reflecting on "what I see as the conflicts inherent in professing both Christianity and Islam." [emphasis added]

During her one-year suspension Redding will not be able to preach or teach at any Episciopal institution. But don't worry; all is not lost for the cause of religious diversity:

Redding is scheduled to start teaching part time as a visiting assistant professor at Jesuit-run Seattle University this fall.

Richard Cross holds a doctorate in psychology, who has taught at the university level, including at Franciscan University. He is currently an educational researcher and consultant in the field of psychology and related disciplines.
