Episcopal priest says she's Christian and Muslim

[Christian Examiner] 29 June 2007--Ralph Webb, director of the Institute on Religion and Democracy's Anglican Action program, noted that the "Episcopal Church continues to find new, creative ways to allow for heterodox faith variations at the local level. First, there was a 'local option' for same-sex blessings in the Episcopal Church. Now there's apparently an unofficial 'local option' for clergy who profess dual faiths."

The idea that a person can become a Muslim while remaining an Episcopal priest in good standing trivializes both faiths, Webb said.
