The first openly female gay bishop is announced

In a country where talks of “first” is still high on the social ladder, we have another “first” to talk about for the gay and lesbian community.  First, a little back story.  It has been seven years since the Episcopal Church created a firestorm of controversy when it decided that indeed a gay man could be a bishop.  Fast forward to today and we find that yes a lesbian woman can be a bishop as well.  The Rev. Canon Mary Glasspool, of Baltimore, was ordained and consecrated on Saturday, making her the second openly gay bishop in Episcopal church history and one of the first two female bishops in the Diocese of Los Angeles’ 114-year history.  The fact that it has taken 114 years for a woman to become a bishop is amazing – the fact that it is a lesbian women is nothing short of amazing.

While I will never understand the politics and angst that comes with the Church and their politics, many are happy to see Rev Glasspool take her position in history.  She was installed at Long Beach Arena before 3,000 people and according to a church spokesman, the arena erupted in applause after the installation ceremony.  The Rev was quoted as saying to the media: “the church’s willingness to ordain women and gays shows a commitment that goes beyond mere inclusive language.”

Let’s here it for the Episcopal church that continues to show that their is a place for everyone in God’s world. – Thomas (Click Click Expose)

Have a vodka and a good laugh…..

Filed under: click click expose,GLBT,homosexual,religion — ccevideo @ 2:43 pm
I am always on the look out for a good laugh.  Here is one to get your day going….ENJOY!!

A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done. The monsignor replied, “When I am worried about getting nervous On the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervous, I take a sip.”

So next Sunday he took the Monsignor’s advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink. He proceeded to talk up a storm. He felt great!

Upon his return to his office after the mass, he found the following note on the door:

1) Sip the vodka, don’t gulp.
2)
There are 10 commandments, not 12.
3)
There are 12 disciples, not 10.
4)
Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.
5)
Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.
6)
We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.
7)
The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior and the spooky.
‘8)
David slew Goliath, he did not kick the sh*t out of him.
9)
When David was hit by a rock and was knocked off his donkey, don’t say he was stoned off his ass.
10) We do not refer to the cross as the “Big T.”

11) When Jesus broke the bread at the last supper he said, “take this and eat it for it is my body” He did not say ” Eat me”.

12) The Virgin Mary is not called “Mary with the Cherry”.

13) The recommended grace before a meal is not: Rub-A- Dub-Dub thanks for the grub, Yeah God.

14) Next Sunday there will be a taffy pulling contest at St. Peter’s, not a peter pulling contest at St. Taffy’s!

I hope that made your day… Make a good one.

Thomas
