Turn About

In a thread below, Elizabeth Kaeton offered a link and challenged me to post it. I am happy to do so. At the 'Inky-Dinky' Diocese, she offers her reflections on the consent process of Bishop-Elect Forrester.

I disagree with a very few of Elizabeth's arguments, but I am truly glad that we on the "left" are not afraid of this kind of discussion.

Good on you, Elizabeth!

Oh, don't encourage her, Lisa. She's in one of her unbearable moods. For a lipstick lesbian she can be so butch sometimes :)

Ah ha! I knew I was causing you to rethink your position. Well done.

Lisa - I never challenged you to post a link to my blog. I only challenged you to read my blog.

See what I mean, Lisa.

It's like having a kid sister all over again.

Well, what is it Maddy: 'Lesbianism as the New Patriarchy' or 'having a kid sister all over again'?

LOL, you two!

Yes, Elizabeth, I may have been guilty here of a bit of overstatement. You only challenged me to read your piece. In the desire for broad discussion, I went further and linked it here because I respect your perspective on this.

At the risk of stirring up the fires, something middle children typically avoid, I feel I should mention that our Bishop, Greg Rickel of the Diocese of Olympia has posted a statement regarding his position. I hasten to add that he and the diocese would fit in the "progressive" camp.

Thanks for that link, KJ.

People I respect are coming down on opposite sides of this question. As I've tried to say, I have questions.

At this point, I'm offering it up to the Spirit to guide the bishops and Standing Committees.
