Another Queer Challenge for Anglican Church

Six years after the election of the first openly gay Anglican Bishop, Gene Robinson, an LA diocese made history last night by electing the first openly Lesbian Anglican Bishop in the form of Rev Mary Glasspool. It will put further pressure on the world-wide head of the Anglican Church, the Archbishop of Canterbury,Rowan Williams. I suspect the Church will come up with another fudge and it will further fragment. In that context, I'm not sure how great news this is. If we have a small part of the church that is more open minded but the rest becomes even more determined in it's homophobia, that seems a shallow victory. We should also not forget that this election has yet to be confirmed. Still, a story to watch. Read the BBC report here.
