Katharine Jefferts-Schori (KJS), baptized Catholic and raised by apostate parents, has led the TEC crew through several denomination shattering events. She has presided over the dwindling flock's increased dwindling while trying to slow her community's slide into oblivion by employing the failing strategy of greater conformity to worldly agendas, i.e., "relevance". Her foray into "relevance" has led many in her community to walk away to join various continuing Anglican bodies such as the Anglican Church in North America.
In the ten years between 2002 and 2012, the TEC lost 24% of its membership, echoing the trajectory of most if not all mainline protestant denominations.
(Curry) will serve a nine-year term that officially begins Nov. 1. On that date, Curry will succeed current Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schori and he will become the first person of color to hold that position.
A liturgy marking the beginning of Curry’s ministry as presiding bishop and primate will be celebrated Nov. 1, All Saints Day at Washington National Cathedral.
“This is a good and wonderful church and we are good and wonderful people (No whiff of self congratulation there, eh?) and I thank God to be one of the baptized among you,” Curry said, adding, “My heart is really full.” (Full of... himself?)
Look at me, Lord. I'm tolerant; I'm all about diversity. I'm not like those bigots who defend traditional marriage which You, Yourself, designed. I'm not a racist-bigot-homophobe. I give lots of cash to groups like Planned Parenthood. I support a woman's choice to end her unborn baby's life. So bless me, Lord. I'm a good and wonderful person.—cf. St. Luke 18:9-14 and St. Mark 2:17.
I believe in a god created in my own image and likeness. I believe in me. Despite his being raised in an evil patriarchal religion and society, I think Jesus is a swell guy who said some pretty cool things, but I pick and choose what I think applies to me and my truth.
Except for the decree that there are no absolutes, there are no absolutes.
I feel, therefore I am. Whatever I feel, I know I am right. Others can feel whatever they want as long as we agree we are both right on whatever we want to be right about.
As long as I am a good person I know god will love me because I am god, and I love me.
That's about it. Blessed be me.*
