Episcopalians to 'exercise restraint' in terms of gay bishops; to 'exercise abs' in terms of gym routines
Semi-reversing yesterday's rejection of a queer-unfriendly proposal, the Episcopal church today adopted a non-binding resolution asking that church officials try and avoid consecrating any more openly gay bishops.
Fully reversing our coverage of the topic from yesterday, we say:
The new resolution doesn't ban the bishops, it only asks that officials "exercise caution" in terms of their consecration. So basically the bishops become like that little girl in your third grade class who you'd possibly put on your kick ball team if you had to, but her inability to kick the ball more than two feet automatically placed her last on your list of eligibles. Except unlike in that case, where the only real fallout would be an awkward conversation should you and "Missy Can't Kick" find yourselves next to one another in the lunch line, this gay bishop avoidance has the potential to deeply wound loads of really good people.
