View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Episcopal Church continues self-destruction?

Jim Brown

A conservative Anglican leader says if one of the two openly homosexual priests who are candidates to become bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California is elected, the fallout could rival that of the controversy over the denomination's 2003 ordination of homosexual Bishop Gene Robinson.

Bonnie Perry of Chicago and Robert Taylor of Seattle -- both of whom have longtime same-sex partners -- are among the five nominees for the position of Episcopal bishop of California. …

After Bishop Robinson's ordination, an emergency panel of the global Anglican Communion called for a moratorium on installing bishops in same-sex relationships.

California is apparently ignoring the request.

The article notes: Canon David Anderson, president and CEO of the American Anglican Council, says the nominations are no shock to conservatives.

"This is not surprising to most of us in the Orthodox part of the Episcopal Church," says Anderson. "We understood that there is an agenda within the Episcopal Church for trying to subvert it into a 'holy homosexual' kind of a church. So we anticipated that they would do this again and again."

The diocese is scheduled to select its new bishop May 6 – prophetically in San Francisco?

The selection then has to be approved by the Episcopal Church’s General Convention in June.

Let us thank God that we are part of His true Church and won't be seeing this fallout in our own Church. I hope that out of this more people convert to Catholicism.

Let us pray...
