This video is captioned. Hooray!

It’s sort of like the United Nations. If we’re talking, we’re not fighting.

As I understand it, this is a meeting of primates. Yea, there are very few females in that group. But no one can say that Bishop Curry is insensitive to women’s or gender-identity issues.

Rod Gillis

Not just Primates, but a sending out of “pairs” of bishops. There are no female bishops in the “pairs” that were sent out. The Canadian bishop is Bishop of Quebec Dennis Drainville, the American Bishop is Bishop of Tennessee, John Bauerschmidt.

Its a kind of solicitous politics that has shrouded Anglican women in the episcopate.

Rod Gillis

The original “Jesus Movement” was supported by the largesse of women, who as far as I can tell, are completely invisible in this event.

Not to mention the rest of us of whom the Roman Church doesn’t approve. Bad bed-fellows Bishop Curry. You cannot serve two masters, for you will love the one and hate the other.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
