Bishop ready to defend herself, Episcopal Church

[] 12 Feb 2007--At a book party last week at the New York headquarters of the Episcopal Church, a line of more than 100 fans waited to have the church's new presiding bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, sign copies of her new book of sermons, A Wing and a Prayer.

"'We have had gay bishops and gay clergy for millennia,' she said. 'The willingness to be open about that is more recent.'

She said opposition came primarily from a "handful of primates," led by Archbishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria, with support from those in Uganda and Rwanda. She said they had made it appear as if the bulk of the Anglican Communion was arrayed against the Americans, when that was not the case. "

Oh, I am dizzy from all the spin. Or does she believe what she is saying?
