The following list of Bishops are candidates for election to the office of Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church:
The Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander, Bishop of Atlanta
The Rt. Rev. Francisco Duque-Gomez, Bishop of Colombia
The Rt. Rev. Edwin F. Gulick, Jr., Bishop of Kentucky
The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Bishop of Nevada
The Rt. Rev. Charles Jenkins, Bishop of Louisiana
The Rt. Rev. Henry H. Parsley, Jr., Bishop of Alabama
The Rt. Rev. Stacy F. Sauls, Bishop of Lexington
In an article for the Witness, Louie Crew interviews the candidates. Two of the questions that he asks each bishop are:
1. If a gay or lesbian person is elected on your watch, would you consent to the election?
2. If a gay or lesbian person is elected on your watch, would you be willing to serve as key consecrator?
A quote from thewitness.org says "The Witness has served for decades as the communications and organizing vehicle for progressive Episcopalians in the U.S. Readers can find out more about this publication, including the revisionist Bishops on its board of directors by visiting this page: http://www.thewitness.org/about.php

He used to be my bishop, and a worthless hireling shepherd he was.
Although I guess instead of the pretty (if somewhat blowsy) farm girl in Hunt's painting, in keeping with the general tenor of things it ought to be a boy . . . yechh!
