Re “L.A. diocese elects first lesbian Episcopal bishop,” Dec. 6, and “Anglicans admonish U.S. leaders on lesbian bishop,” Dec. 7
It was a joy to be present in Riverside to witness this historic moment in the life of my church. To its credit, the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles neither denied the Rev. Canon Mary D. Glasspool the opportunity to apply her prodigious skills to the office of suffragan bishop nor its communicants the benefit of the same.
Regarding the Archbishop of Canterbury: Has he forgotten that the very existence of his office is the result of bold dissent against the Catholic Church in Rome some 500 years ago?
Kenneth Wesley Livingston
If the leaders of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles claim to be the disciples of Jesus and believers in the Bible, they have committed a sin against their belief. Please read this Bible verse:
I Corinthians 6:9 -- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
