Episcopal Church Appoints First Openly-Muslim Bishop

Bishops in the Episcopal Church today approved the election of the first
openly-Muslim bishop in the church's history. The Islamic cleric, who rejects the deity of Jesus Christ, received an overwhelming majority of the vote.


A spokesperson for the Episcopal Church said the move demonstrates, "Our church is open to all people, regardless of their beliefs, or whether they accept the teachings of the Bible."

The election of the Muslim bishop comes as the church stands ready to
approve its first homosexual Bishop, V. Gene Robinson. Later today, the
bishops plan to vote on the election of the church's first openly-atheist bishop.



David Virtue's satirical piece doesn't seem satirical to me at all. Anglicanism has traditionally included people in the fold regardless of their beliefs; and frequently rewarded those who most consistently deny the teachings of the Bible with a bishop's mitre. I thought there were a number of openly atheistic bishops in the Anglican Chuch already. Certainly there are any number of clergymen in the Church who are indistinguishable from atheists. At least a Muslim would affirm the one true God.
