California Episcopals could elect gay bishop SaturdayMaybe, just maybe, we're starting to get Jesus' real message out there. Love. Tolerance. Peace.
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The Episcopal Diocese of California began voting on Saturday to elect a new bishop and could widen the rift over homosexuality within the global Anglican Communion of 77 million if it selected one of three openly gay candidates.
No gay or lesbian cleric has been elected bishop since the consecration of Eugene Robinson in 2003 as bishop of New Hampshire threw the U.S. church and the worldwide family of Anglican churches into turmoil.
