Celebrating the upcoming rituals that will make Rev. Glasspool Bishop Glasspool in the Episcopal Church!
Funny thing: after hearing about the need for bodyguards around Bishop Gene Robinson because of death threats, I hear none of these "needs" for Rev. Glasspool.
Here's the story from the LA Times:
Mary Glasspool is the first openly gay bishop approved since 2003, when the election of a gay man as bishop of New Hampshire caused such an uproar that the U.S. church, under pressure from other members of the global Anglican Communion, imposed a moratorium on such elevations. The ban was lifted last year.
Glasspool is also one of the first two women to be elected as bishops in the 114-year history of the Los Angeles diocese. The other, Diane M. Jardine Bruce, won final approval March 8.
This guy’s response to homophobic straight dudes in the locker room is priceless - "This is one of my crowning achievements" in life and I feel nothing but pride," Cody Harpster says.
