Skip to comments.Episcopal Church Ordains Its 2nd Openly Gay Bishop : This Time, Bishop Is Woman.
Posted on 05/15/2010 5:41:03 PM PDT by george76
Seven years after the Episcopal Church caused an uproar by consecrating its first openly gay bishop, it has done the same thing again -- only this time with a woman.
The Rev. Canon Mary Glasspool, of Baltimore, was ordained and consecrated on Saturday, making her the second openly gay bishop in church history and one of the first two female bishops in the Diocese of Los Angeles' 114-year history.
Breakaway Episcopal conservatives have formed a rival church, the Anglican Church in North America.
Several overseas Anglicans have been pressuring Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of the world's 77 million Anglicans, to officially recognize the new conservative entity.
In 2004, Anglican leaders asked the Episcopal Church for a moratorium on electing another gay bishop while they tried to prevent a permanent break in the fellowship.

This saddens me for all those faithful Episcopal Christians who do not see the crisis of their church. At the same time, I am glad to be shut of this apostate branch of the Body of Christ as much as I am glad to be shut of California, a renegade state of the United States.
Why don’t they just go all the way and ordain Satan?
Did the Episcopal church originate in Sodom?
It’s simply amazing that a church could come to this end,this destruction.

I saw it over ten years ago, as I was senior warden at
a very small, but historic church in Tennessee.
I left the ECUSA.
It has gone the same way as the USA, now USSA...down the tubes.
The Episcopal church was the first church in America.
This is so sad. My family and I left shortly after the consecration of Vicki Gene Robinson.
I remain a member of the Anglican Mission in America.
Conservative Episcopalians, there is a home for you.
In this case, wouldn’t “church flaming” be more appropriate? ;-)
Let set the “gay” part of this issue aside for the moment... is the Episcopal church condoning infidelity?
Because if she is “openly” gay ... she has a partner.. which means she is committing sex out of wedlock, which isn’ even allowed among heterosexuals.
They are so open-minded, their brains have fallen out
actually, the Episcopals weren’t the first church in America.
The Catholics (in St Augustine Florida) beat them to it.
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
Matthew 7:15-16 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them.”
Romans 16:17-18 “Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them. For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.”
C S*A) Ping!

Alleluia! Christ Ascends with shouts of joy!
Sad to watch.
The LCMS holds firm to sound doctrine. Any fleeing ELCA’s are welcome. My brother’s ELCA church joined the Lutheran Church Mission for Christ, another conservative home for those fleeing the apostacy in the ELCA.
1st I was wondering why our Lutheran pingmaster was sending us here....then
“The Rev. Canon Mary Glasspool, of Baltimore,”
As a native, this stuck out at me right away. Great. More gays in welfare town. More liberalism. That’s what Balto needs.
May I suggest she have a name change to “Cesspool”?
Can’t be said often enough.
I hope you went to a faithful congregation as I did.
“I hope you went to a faithful congregation as I did.”
I left the USSA before the Obamination, and Marxist rule.
Here, I have only the Catholic church, no Anglican.
I do not expect to ever return to what once was America.
You might be prophetic there.
Like I posted above the ping banner...because the Episcopal Church is one of the ELCA's "Full Communion Partners".
A "rival" church only in liberal minds, and there is more than one. I left ECUSE for one such province 27 years ago, now part of a three-province Anglican communion in North America. We do not consider ourselves "rivals" with TEC (why would we want to be rivals with apostacy?) but rather the Church continuing.
