This is why I am proud to be Episcopalian!

Teresa Morrison at The has a great article about the Episcopal church and our Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.

Morrison writes:
In this age of gay bashing from all sides, it isn’t often we [the LGBT community] encounter a religious leader -- or any leader -- willing to bulldog for our rights, especially when faced with such a potentially high cost to herself and the institution she represents. What I wouldn’t give for such genuine representation in our elected officials.

And this is the reason I am Fr. Ben instead of Pr. Ben.
