Utterly as expected. One-dimensional totally unimaginative thinking, and therefore boring. More Pelagian-Arian theology. Although writing that just now it occurred to me that Pelagius and Arius would probably be horrified to be linked with Mrs Schori.

Very Funny “Senior Priest”! I’m curious about the meme she keeps repeating “...you are my beloved in whom I am well pleased”. She used that as a meditation when she met the clergy and people of the Diocese of Albany. Some of my friends who were there thought it a little strange and here it is again.

It is odd how she can’t even say, You are my son, the beloved.” If you are going to quote scripture as a weird mantra, at least quote what God said correctly.

RE: “the meme she keeps repeating . . . “

Honestly, I think she did sort of a stock little sermonette that all of her lib friends told her was Absolutely Awesome and, like, way contemplative and sorta Easterny meditationish-like, and she’s proudly wheeled it around TECusa quoting herself ever since.

If I cared about her credibility I’d be horribly embarrassed for her, but blessedly, I prefer that her credibility—and reputation for substancelessness—continue to take the massive hits that they have around the globe. 

So, save for the tedium for her present-day audiences, it’s all good. I’d be distressed if she were anything other than vacuous and preening.
