On to new business. If you run a site like this, any story about the consecration of an Episcopal bishops is like Christmas. You don't know what's in the package but there's a pretty good chance that you're going to love it.
Of course you're going to get socks or a tie once in a while. Granted, I haven't seen many pictures of it but the recent consecration of Mary Glasspool, the Episcopal Church's second homosexual bishop, out in Los Angeles, has to be considered a major disappointment.
But the Diocese of Upper South Carolina just made up for it. Um...Upper South Carolina, Gracie? Yup. For those who don't know, there are almost as many Episcopal dioceses as there are Episcopalians and, as Andy Warhol might have said, in the future, everyone will be an Episcopal bishop for 15 minutes.
Anyway, Upper SC just consecrated a new bishop. That's him in the middle, the Rev. W. Andrew Waldo. I'm not sure what's going on there. I guess it's a variation of that flames theme. Once again, it's kind of not a good idea if they look like they're coming from that direction.
The woman to Bishop Waldo's right is rocking a stole with the names of women from the Bible signifying, of course, that there were...women...in the...Bible. I don't know about you but I didn't know that so I appreciate this woman communicating that fact.
I don't know what's happening on the stole on the woman to the Bishop's left. God's in charge of the weather? A tribute to the cold front? Go Iowa State Cyclones?
