L.A. Region's First Two Female Episcopal Bishops Are Ordained The two Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary Douglas Glasspool are ordained to applause and cheers. Glasspool is also the church's first lesbian bishop. Two protesters are removed from the ceremony.

There was a moment on Saturday when even the usually unflappable J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, held his breath. It was the point when the 3,000 people at the Long Beach Arena were asked if anyone had any objections to the ordination of the region's first two female bishops, one of whom is the first lesbian bishop ordained by the Episcopal Church.
"I don't think there's anybody in this place who was more nervous than I was," Bruno said a short time later in his sermon. But the moment passed in silence, and the two women Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary Douglas Glasspool were ordained to applause and cheers. Bruno said the church was "fuller and richer and more vital" as a result.
"Today, as we pray over these two magnificent women, bring into your hearts those things that you bear against any other human being and cast them away," Bruno told the assembly. "For we cannot be separated from each other if God is for us and with us. . . . There are no outcasts."
Bruce and Glasspool will be assistants to Bruno, a position known as suffragan. They are the 1,044th and 1,045th bishops ordained in the history of the Episcopal Church, but few previous clerical elections have attracted as much attention.

“But the moment passed in silence, and the two women Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary Douglas Glasspool were ordained to applause and cheers.”
Do we need any further proof that the ECUSA has jumped the shark?
no wonder I left that church
How does one look up the name of an Episcopal Priest who was once my pastor? ... I need to have along talk with him.
Ms. Hurtchu is likely a masculine lesbian type...
We have wealthy neighbors like that...Only wants the best...The other half of the two freaks stuck her hogshead over the fence and said her hairy mate wanted something for her birthday.... that went form 0-200 fast, and didn't care what color it was.
I suggested to hogjaws she buy a bathroom scale for her.
one by one the church’s are being targeted and infiltrated by homosexuals and far left loons
sad thing is that it is working, even on here a woman told me she had no problem with the homosexual agenda because she met a homo guy who joined her church and he is nice
er course he’s nice to you is a con man ever bad to you and why doesn’t she and others go to their freak parades and see how they really act and what they really are like
This is one of the reasons I used to be an Episcopalian.
ECUSA has sealed its fate. It is no longer a church, but a social experiment in vestments.
More like Cesspool now.
Oh well, this is LA. The nominally male Archbishop is named J. Jon, so what else could one reasonably expect? Perhaps the ECUSA hierarchy can find it in their hearts to draw the line at bestiality and devil worship, although I doubt it.
How does one look up the name of an Episcopal Priest who was once my pastor? Try Google. Or ask a a Lesbian.
If you’re an ugly lesbian there is hope for you in the Espiscopal “Church” Freak Show. Really, who takes this outfit seriously.
“one by one the churchs are being targeted and infiltrated by homosexuals and far left loons”
True - but not only the Episcopal Church but most mainline churches, the universities, government, etc., and it was all part of the social revolution begun in the 60’s and continues to this day.
Karl marx once said that for their agenda to succeed they would have to get into positions of power and influence, the commie manifesto says that they have to infiltrate groups opposed to them , to cause division amongst them.
The far left and homo's have targeted Church's, they tried it with the boy scouts and when that didn't work they then got them boycotted as they do with everyone who they cannot shut down.
schools, uni's, church,s , sport/gun/hunting groups, media even on here there is some causing unrest and trying to spread their agenda by using the libertarian view on things like homosexuals IMHO I'd say us on the right are about 40 years behind the far left with their agenda and we;re playing catch up we have to educate our kids, tell them what is going on, tell family , friends etc because if we do not then they have won and ruined this country I've got 3 kids , oldest being 12 and all of them are aware of the schools, teachers, what they watch infact I get my kids running up to me telling me about an AD on TV saying about diversity, green week again, once there was one saying tell your parents about getting those bulbs changed If people find it hard to tell others on what is going on then I despair at their lazy ass and ignorance
Sts.Sappho and J.Jon
'A social experiment in vestments' - well put. It's a shame to witness.
