It's never wise to satirize the Episcopal Church. Four years ago, after the appointment of the "openly gay" Bishop of New Hampshire, Scrappleface offered the following headline:
Episcopal Church Appoints First Openly-Muslim Bishop
Today The Seattle Times brings us this story:
Shortly after noon on Fridays, the Rev. Ann Holmes Redding ties on a black headscarf, preparing to pray with her Muslim group on First Hill.
On Sunday mornings, Redding puts on the white collar of an Episcopal priest.
She does both, she says, because she's Christian and Muslim.
John Hindraker at Powerline notes:
This story gives us a clue as to why the Episcopal church is not exactly thriving these days.
