Ah yes, what would a pre-consecration dinner in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland be without BOOZE – and lots of it!
The timeline, which the Diocese of Maryland said Monday it had added to its Web site, says the head of the national Episcopal Church was made aware that Cook may have been drunk during her installation celebration. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was the leader of the Sept. 6 service that consecrated Cook, or made her a bishop [or something].
Bishop Eugene Sutton — who oversees Episcopalians in much of Maryland aside from the D.C. suburbs — suspected Cook was “inebriated during pre-consecration dinner,” the timeline says, “and conveys concern to Presiding Bishop. Presiding Bishop indicates she will discuss with Cook. Cook consecrated.”
You’re darn right she was consshhecrated! You can’t separate an Anglican from her BOOZE, and that goesth double for Heather Cook!
Katharine Schori and Heather Cook and ALL (hic) good Episcopalians agree! BOOZE – It’s what’s for dinner!
