The following list of Bishops are candidates for election to the office of Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church:

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?

Well, I can strongly recommend AGAINST Alexander.

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!
