Buddhist/Episcopal Bishop?

It was bound to happen. First they started ordaining bishops who thumbed their nose at traditional morality. Then they started pushing out those who protested. Now they seem to think it OK for a bishop to mix Buddhism and Christianity.

An Episcopal priest who has received a Buddhist lay ordination has been nominated for the position of bishop in the Diocese of Northern Michigan. The Rev. Kevin Thew Forrester, who has served in the diocese since 2001, will be the only nominee for the vacant position.

  1. If I am not mistaken, a year or so ago an Episcopal female priest declared that she was also a Muslim and conversely worships at the Mosque on Fridays then leads Christian worship in her church on Sundays.

    Is the Episcopal church on its way to becoming merely a pseudo Christian community?

    • I think it is following in the path of the Unitarian-Universalist Association: open to any and all traditions (just so long as you use the BCP).

  2. thankfully there are still pockets of bible believing episcopals (we call them anglicans over here in australia).
    Check out sydneyanglicans.net for some solid teaching.

    I was about to say that why doesn’t someone stand up to this, but if they’re already ordaining openly gay bishops, it was only a matter of time before they started ordaining bishops who didn’t believe in the exclusivity of christianity
