Episcopalian Vote for Bishop

If you read my post below titled: "Episcopal Church Loses Collective Mind", you'll know that the Episcopalian church members were to vote on 7 different candidates for the position of Bishop of the Diocese of California. And you'll remember that 3 of those candidates were openly gay, living in an openly gay relationship. I complained that it seemed that the members of the Episcopalian church in even nominating such people violated God's word as laid out in his Holy Book and as such thumbed their collective noses at our Father.

But, as outlined here on CNN's website tonight, the members actually have a brain and decided to at least elect a Bishop who isn't gay.

In fact, according to the report, the three openly gay electees received only a "handfull of votes" each.

So to the brave memebers of this denomination who voted for a non gay bishop and to keep their denomination whole and not splintered, I commend you.
