Mary Glasspool (photo from ENS)Great news this morning: “L.A. diocese elects first lesbian bishop” on the front page of the L.A. Times! Finally a reason to be proud that I live in Los Angeles. Bishop Mary Glasspool is the first lesbian Episcopal bishop in America! Here’s a link to the whole article -- it has a wonderful photo of Bishop Glasspool shouting for joy: http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-bishop6-2009dec06,0,4273553.story The article says, “Glasspool is the first openly gay priest to be elected bishop since Rt. Rev. V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire in 2003.” Welcome to L.A., Bishop Glasspool!
