Openly Gay Episcopal Priest Receives More Nods

From the Christian Post:

A controversial priest who has a lesbian partner has so far received more than half the votes she needs to be consecrated as an assistant bishop.

And the 120-day consent process began just a month ago.

The Rev. Canon Mary Douglas Glasspool has 29 consents to become bishop suffragan, according to a recent report by the Diocese of Los Angeles. She needs 56 to be confirmed as the second openly homosexual bishop in The Episcopal Church.

“Throughout her 30 years of ordained ministry, the Rev. Mary Glasspool has been faithful and consistent to the ministry, doctrine and teaching of the Episcopal Church,” Bishop Nathan Baxter of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania wrote in a pastoral letter indicating his consent.

“On the matter of her sexuality and life-style, the Rev. Glasspool is faithful to the spirit and prayerfully determined direction of our church,” he noted.

And there you have it: “Rev. Glasspool is faithful to the spirit and prayerfully determined direction of our church”. TEC has abandoned Biblical directives and, instead, has decided to go its own way, faithful to a spirit that is entirely unrelated to the Spirit and prayer that is entirely solipsistic.
