In a stunning revelation that shocked no one, the world's first ever openly partnered lesbian bishop (OPLB), Mary Glasspool, said that the Bishop of Los Angeles, Jon Bruno, "scared the shit" out of her.
Glasspool's remarkable statement came to light during testimony given at Bruno's trial for misconduct regarding the sale of St. James, Newport Beach.
When questioned about her interaction with Glasspool, who "wanted a hug" in a woman's restroom, Canon Cindy Voorhees stated, “And then she [Glasspool] said, the bishop scared the shit out of her,” and that “she needed to get out of here and was just trying to make it through General Convention.”
The pioneeringly lesbian Glasspool left the Diocese of Los Angeles in 2015 following her opposition to Bruno's plans to sell St. James, and is new an assistant bishop figure in New York. Bishop Bruno, who has been described by some pundits as "a liar, a bully, and a cheat," is on trial for ecclesiastical wrongdoing, dubbed by some as "skulduggery and malfeasance."
Experts are divided on whether Bruno's shadow was seen occluding the earth from the International Space Station.
