Thanks, Huffpost, for the highlight of my day if not my whole adult life, ever!

How you like THEM apples, churchladies? Hrm... not so much apples as ... you know what, I got better places for my foot than my mouth.

When the local church down your street makes a point of protesting your gentlmen’s club all the time, take down people’s license plates, and stalk them with questions about “does your family know you come here?”, you could cower and close shop.

Or you, as a gainfully and legally employed individual can tell them to go to the same hell they think anyone but their narrowminded asses is headed for. My favorite part about this story is how sympathetic even some of the congregation is and brings the ladies cookies! Even the church further up the road thinks their brethren and sistren are outta line here.

Jesus is so BIG… It’s a little uncomfortable

Lutheran Church ends anti-gay policies

One can only hope someday others will follow suit. I optimistically envision a large rainbow snowball rolling down a mountain…

(From HuffingtonPost) “After twenty-five years of deliberation, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Church Council has abolished its anti-gay policies, effective immediately. Following from discussions at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly last summer, the ELCA will now allow people in same-sex relationships to serve as rostered leaders. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) human beings are no longer considered abominations but blessed church members with full standing. Same-sex partners and families can now fully participate in the ELCA Pension Plan.” Read more

In December, Rev. Canon Mary Douglas Glasspool was elected Bishop by the Episcopal Church’s Los Angeles diocese. On Wednesday she was confirmed!

That makes her the second openly homosexual Bishop (along with Rev. V. Gene Robinson) and also one of two female Bishops (along with Bishop-elect Diane M. Jardine Bruce) in the church’s history. Woot!

(From CNN) “The Episcopal Church confirmed its first openly lesbian bishop on Wednesday, six years after its first openly gay bishop took office. “I am profoundly grateful for the many people … who have given their prayers, love, and support during this time of discernment,” Bishop-elect Mary Douglas Glasspool said after learning she’d won support from the majority of her church’s standing committees and diocesan bishops” Read more
