The Episcopal bishop who has been the source of much of the bitter division, vindictiveness and darkness clouding that denomination now wants people to pray away an insurmountable gay rift. Oh, and use discernment too.
In Dallas, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefforts-Schori told the Associated Press that the church should respond with “prayer and discernment” after she opened the door and ushered in doctrines of devils disguised as tolerance and acceptance.

The queen witch appears to be attempting to play spiritual after years of punitive edicts against Episcopal bishops who refused to bow to Ahab aka Vickie Gene Robinson, the first open homosexual consecrated by the US Episcopalians to the bishopric.
Last month, the church set in motion the consecration of a second homosexual bishop.
The Episcopal Church is the Anglican body in the United States. In 2003, it caused an uproar by consecrating its first openly gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire.
The following year, Anglican leaders asked the Episcopal Church to hold off on electing another gay bishop while they tried to prevent a permanent break in the fellowship.
But in July, the U.S. church’s top policy making body affirmed that gay and lesbian priests were eligible to become bishops despite pressure from other Anglicans.
The Archbishop of Canterbury called for gracious restraint on the matter, but Jefferts Schori said Saturday that “there was never any time frame attached to that request.”
She added that she didn’t know whether six years was long enough to wait but “the church is in the process of discerning that.”
The liberal-leaning Jefferts Schori spoke at a news conference with the more conservative Rev. William C. Frey, the retired bishop of Colorado who is now assisting bishop of the Diocese of the Rio Grande.
So far, Jefforts-Schori has rejected all efforts to halt the spread and approval of heresy and sexual immorality in the church.
