Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles elects openly gay bishop
Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles elects openly gay bishop.

This was taken from the L. A. Times website today: Article dated December 5, 2009 | 3:07 pm.

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles today elected the first openly gay bishop since the national church lifted a ban that sought to bar gays and lesbians from the church's highest ordained ministry.

Clergy and lay leaders, meeting in Riverside for their annual convention, elected the Rev. Canon Mary D. Glasspool, 55, who has been in a committed relationship with another woman since 1988. Another gay candidate, the Rev. John L. Kirkley of San Francisco, withdrew late Friday.

Glad to see a church being postive, lets hope the other dioceses follow the policy of appointing more gay bishops.
