Bishop (to be) Glasspool!

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.

Celebration time!
