Here’s the NYT’s coverage of the big religious news of the weekend: Woman Is Named Episcopal Leader Amongst the reporting is this nugget from one of those who is unhappy:
“In many ways the election speaks for itself,” Bishop Robert W. Duncan Jr. of Pittsburgh said in a statement. Bishop Duncan is the moderator of the Anglican Communion Network, a theologically conservative group of Episcopal dioceses. “For the Anglican Communion worldwide, this election reveals the continuing insensitivity and disregard of the Episcopal Church for the present dynamics of our global fellowship.”
So the Episcopal Church should deny the truth it knows (that women can be priests and bishops) for the sake of fellowship with those who still haven’t got it? Let them turn to Rome.
And this from the other side of the pond: The Guardian.
