(Anglican Ink) Presiding Bishop will not rule out possibility of a second term run

The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori has not ruled out seeking a second nine year term as Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church of the USA.

Her comments came amidst a wide ranging interview broadcast on 25 Feb 2014 interview Kansas City National Public Radio affiliate station KCUR.

Asked about the sharp decline in membership since the 1960s, Bishop Jefferts Schori said the decline did not worry her. While there were fewer Episcopalians today, they were nonetheless better Episcopalians. The “membership levels of 50 years ago are not reflective of the faith” of the people in the pews she noted.

    I’m thrilled to hear the pb say that my relatives who attended the Episcopal Church a half century ago are not so much “faithful” but that they are merely “departed.”

    Wow, what a surprise!

    The PB has to grab another term in order to keep a tight rein on the affairs of the Episcopal Church and head off any questioning of a number of things done under her leadership. Like a dictator, retiring is not an option for her.

    The incredible amounts spent on law suits and the raiding of trust funds are only part of it.

    The PB will run for a second term. What a surprise! In other news it has just been discovered that Texas has a xxxxxhouse in it.
