Female chief makes Church history

This, honestly is a non issue for me. I have no problem with women in ministry. This is however only one issue among many that is plaguing the Episcopal church. The homosexual agenda is the bomb that is going to blow up the convention. It's sad but in the US the Episcopal church is becoming irrelevant, they are down to only 2.4 million members with an average age over 65. Unless they actually reclaim christianity they will cease to exist within 2 generations.

The US Episcopal Church has chosen a woman as its next leader - making it the first church anywhere in the Anglican denomination to do so.

Katharine Jefferts Schori narrowly won a vote among her fellow bishops at a governing General Convention meeting.

The choice must still be approved by delegates at the convention, where the bishops' vote is normally backed.

The choice could prove controversial - most other Anglican Churches around the world do not allow women to be bishops.

The bishops voted 95-93 to back Ms Schori after a number of ballots, AP news agency reported. A total of seven candidates were in the running for the post. Read More.
