Episcopal Bishops Give Democracy the Ring Finger

Granted, this is rather predictable. But I still find it irksome that the Episcopal Bishops of Los Angeles and Northern California have chosen to give democracy and a majority of California voters their ring fingers.

They prate about “rights” in calling for the arbitrary overturning of Proposition 8. But to say the “right” of gays to marry each other trumps democracy is fatuous at best. Further, to use ecclesiastical office to push such views and to undermine democracy is an intolerable abuse of said office.

CORRECTION: A helpful commenter at the above link has pointed out that the AP article is mistaken. The bishops in question are California (Andrus) and Los Angeles (Bruno).
