The Presiding Bishop and the royal baby

by

Following the news of the birth of a son to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, at whose wedding he preached last year, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry tweeted:

Others on Twitter took issue with New York Times coverage of Bishop Curry’s relationship to the royal couple. According to commenters, the paper originally referred to Curry as “a freestyling African-American preacher.”

The copy has apparently been updated to read “bishop” rather than “preacher.”

The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry is the Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church.

I should have thought that they judged their description more 'inflated' and 'grad'n than being the PB of a denomination.

Regrettably most religion reporters in large outlets are quite ill-informed on their ostensible areas of expertise, hence the routine ignorance.
