Latest news roundup

August 29, 2007

Of course things have been busy in the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church lately…

Many others in the blogiverse have been on top of it quite better than I can, but for Reuters take, see this article on +Gene Robinson’s interview, and this one on the slate of nominees for Chicago’s bishop which includes a lesbian.

In other news, I found this article in the Washington Post on the GLBT movement in black churches interesting.  This quote from a black woman about gays was particularly daunting, and reminded me of anglo racism against blacks during integration:  “They’re taking over. I’m sick to my stomach over this mess. It’s not right. Why should we have to leave and let them come in and take over the church?” 

And finally, this AFP article from Malaysia— not a place we hear about GLBT equality very often, but one where an inclusive church is trying to emerge. 

We keep moving forward as the Spirit wills, and She won’t be turned back!
