The Episcopal Church needs many more women bishops, according to Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, and it has neglected available methods to accomplish that goal...The next P.B. is really going to have to try hard to top this gal.
Jefferts Schori said that resistance to women in top leadership roles tends to come not from clergy, who are largely supportive. It comes instead from laity in an Episcopal Church she described as “too white, too old, too female” in comparison with the general population. When asked if laywomen are to blame for the scant number of female leaders, she said, “I don’t know that,” and instead placed the problem broadly at the feet of laypeople empowered to cast votes. Read the rest at the Midwest Conservative Journal.
If the blame is placed on the laypeople who vote, then logic would tell us that the blame must rest on old white females.
That makes about as much sense as saying that white female democrats won't vote for Hillary Clinton if she runs for President.
So how do you solve the gender gap problem in the Episcopacy?
One has to wonder if the rules for electing a bishop might be changed at some point in the future to reduce the impact of the old white church lady vote.
In case you missed it, the dumbest thing she ever said was probably in her worst sermon ever...
