I have to admit I expected Thew Forester, the would-be Buddhist TEC bishop, to get the necessary consents. But apparently he will not. Since I enjoy beating up The Episcopal Church, it is only fair that I note that.
Now I could take a rather jaundiced view or note that a number of the votes against him did not directly address his Buddhism and various heresies.
But TEC just said no to a heretic. And that is a good thing and amazing to behold.
