Episcopal Church takes another great step forward!

On the Saturday, the Episcopal diocese of Los Angeles chose the Rev. Mary Glasspool as its next assistant bishop. If approved by the larger Council on Bishops, Rev. Glasspool will become the demonimation’s first openly gay female official. The previous appointment of diocesan bishop Gene Robinson, who is also gay, sharply divided the American Episcopal Church and continues to be a topic for discussion and dissent. Glasspool later commented on her election and called it a victory for anyone who is gay. She says “Any group of people who have been oppressed because of any one, isolated, aspect of their person yearns for justice and equal rights.”
