White House appoints lesbian minister

Rev. Nancy Wilson
Rev. Nancy Wilson was appointed yesterday by President Barack Obama to the White House Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. She is moderator of Metropolitan Community Churches and one of my role models as a lesbian minister. I worked closely with Nancy when I was national ecumenical officer for Metropolitan Community Churches.

Watch out, White House, here comes a powerful voice for LGBT rights!

Rev.Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, was appointed to the same council. She appeared on this blog before when she riled up conservatives by choosing gender-bending art for Christmas card. See our previous post "Conservatives blast inclusive Christmas card."
