Katharine Jefferts Schori Tribute


Katharine Jefferts Schori, who has been called a "boy bishop," a "rock star," and a "bishop," got a stirring tribute the other day from the floor of her church's General Convention in Salt Lake City.

Here's what some of her admirers had to say, via Virtueonline:

Hot

The newly elected Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, declared, "She was the Presiding Bishop this church needed for the last 9 years," and not only "called us to maturity in Christ," but had a "forceful, prophetic voice." Curry went on to extol Jefferts Schori as "deeply wise, quiet yet strong. That word has become flesh in Katharine Jefferts Schori."

Sexy

The Bishop of Connecticut, Ian Douglas, was also glowing in his praise for the Presiding Bishop, saying that she had "deep wisdom, acuity, compassion" and worked for "reconciliation and restoration."

Not to be outdone, the Bishop of Los Angeles, Jon Bruno, described the departing leader of the Episcopal Church as "a woman of power, courage, and strength" as well as "vitality," and "wisdom."

Fraud

That's our Schori! You can read the whole thing here, and as you do, ponder the $40++ million Jefferts Schori has authorized in litigation during her tenure.

Your Friend,

What's $40 million to retain your empire? -- unless you loose the entire $40 million.

Nothing quite like spending other people's money. Didn't Vladimir Putin say that?

how low does the E church have to sink before you and you parishioners leave, will you be forced to do a "gay" wedding?

Maggie Thatcher said that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money.

I said that the mainstream E church is like a bunch of gay priests and priestesses indulging themselves in a homosexual whore house with somebody else's credit card. And the celebrated Katharine Jeffers Schori is the cheerleader for the orgy and the descent into satanic behavior. - not to put too fine a point on it.

"...That word has become flesh in Katharine Jefferts Schori..."
Did the new Presiding Bishop of TEC really say that? I note the lack of capitalisation, but surely that is, at best, an incredibly ill-judged use of language, and, at worst, verging on blasphemy...

Somebody else's credit card, LL? David Virtue says "Isn't that the truth!"

LSP said...

He really did say that, Michael (I was there). In fact I was being kind, it was hard to tell but "That" may well have been "The", which is even worse...

But I don't think it was intentionally blasphemous -- just a throw away gush of doctrinal illiteracy. So...

"a throw away gush of doctrinal illiteracy" - an excellent summing up of what we are faced with.

I'm afraid that's where we're at. Good luck in the UK -- next step for the COE? Gay marriage, and I'd expect that sooner rather than later.

I fear that you are spot on with your prediction ...
