The Presiding Bishop and the royal baby

The Presiding Bishop and the royal baby

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.

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.
