Bishops Pt. III - Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Schori?

In a recent visit to All Saints of the Desert church in Arizona, Jefferts Schori, leaderene and "Boy Bishop" of The Episcopal Church (TEC) spoke out in favor of Islam.

“There are many strands of Muslims that share a great deal in common with the Episcopal Church. God will use us if we are willing to work closely with each other. There are great possibilities,” stated Schori to parishioners.

Great possibilities - for what? Interfaith pilgrimages to Mecca? Joint basket weaving workshops? Shared disbelief in the divinity of Christ? And just who are these multiple "strands of Muslims" who have so much in common with Schori's TEC? Would they be the ones that do the beheading, or the ones attacking Christians in Egypt and throughout the Middle East?

After her enigmatic comments on The Religion of Peace, Schori told listeners that, "Weapons of violence should not be freely available to just anyone who wants them.”

Evidently Arizona is a free firearms distribution zone. Who knew?

Well done Schori, you get a robust eight Alien Heads.

Reverend: Far be it from me to tell a man of the cloth what to do, but you need to get out now.

This is not a church. It is an agitprop abomination. Even I, a wicked man*, can see that.

* - I am a Catholic who is trying, but like Peter, I would be driven to my knees at the sight of Jesus and compelled to say "Depart from me, I am a sinful man!"

Sound advice, Silverfiddle; "agitprop abomination" is especially good and quotable.

But not to worry, my diocese has left Schori's TEC - they're suing us for the effort - perhaps before too long we'll be in communion with the Holy See.

Thanks for the petrine thoughts - all good pre-Lent stuff...
