say it loud

I’m especially proud to be an Episcopalian today, after the confirmation of Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire, the first openly gay bishop on Anglican history. All very exciting, the more so for happening right here in Minneapolis. As you’ll see from the story there were a couple of 11th hour allegations made against him, but they were investigated and found to be baseless, and his nomination was successfully passed.

From what I’ve heard he is definitely the best qualified for the job, and it’s a great message to the community about what our church believes and who they welcome and minister to. It would have been a great shame to have to tell people that they had to hide who they were, how they are made, for the sake of appeasing a conservative minority and against the spirit of reconciliation, hope and caring.
