Queerty Reports on Gay Nominees

"Great!" says I when I see the pictures of the three gay nominees for the episcopacy on the the gay "news" blog Queerty. At least the secular blog noticed. Queerty is more gossipy than some of my favorites, but I do follow it.

Well that didn't take long. Just weeks after opening up the clergy ranks to gays, the Episcopal Church is seeing three homos nominated for the job. This is certain not to cause any controversy!

Two priests from from California and one from Minnesota join three heteros in nominations to become assistant bishops. Which means from here until December, where two new bishops will be selected,, liberals Episcopalians will be having it out with conservatives who don't want no gays in their church!

Also, maybe we'll hear from the global Anglican Communion, and its growing power base in Nigeria, about how the Rev. Canon Mary Douglas Glasspool of Baltimore, the Rev. John L. Kirkley of San Francisco, and the Rev. Bonnie Perry of Chicago (pictured, L-R) will bring eternal damnation upon their souls!

It was disappointing to read the article with it's sarcastic tone.

My response:

As a voting member (deputy) to the recent convention in Anaheim it is GREAT to see that the a secular gay sight is reporting this at all. Maybe some of your readers might be looking for a church and want to join one that is putting a lot on the line to be inclusive.

If they want the real story, accurately reported and without the stereotypical gay snark, please google this story. We really are moving faster than most main-line churches to get the Gospel right.
