Pretty much everything Fr. “AKMA” says goes for me too. I was going to write up my own response, but his is much more eloquent than mine.
“I’d have thought it went without saying, but since ‘speaking out about the alleged Episcopal priest-Muslim combo’ has become a litmus test in some quarters, I will say that I dissent emphatically from the Rev. Ms. Redding’s understanding of Christian faith and priesthood, and from her bishop’s sense that her situation entails an ‘exciting opportunity.’ Indeed, I take it that only by falsifying that which has historically constituted both of these ways of life can one arrive at both/and approach.”
There is a quote from the article where the priest in question talks about how much easier she found it to come close to God when Jesus was taken out of the equation. (Or something like that.) That to me points out the real core problem.
