Episcopal church says no to McGreevey
« on: April 25, 2011, 02:00:17 PM »
Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey — who shocked the nation in 2004 when he announced he was a “gay American” and stepped down from office — has been denied his bid to join the priesthood of the Episcopal Church, The Post has learned.

Church leaders, who have long embraced gay parishioners and clergy, were bothered by McGreevey’s bitter divorce, sources told The Post.

“It was not being gay but for being a jackass — [McGreevey] didn’t come out of the whole divorce looking good,” said a source with the Episcopal Diocese of Newark.

Some leaders also were wary of McGreevey’s sudden embrace of their faith after his scandal and feared the church was being used, the source added.

I see.  It's not because he's a thief and a liar, and a DEVIANT; it's because of his messy divorce.

Wow, turned down by a bunch of apostate Episcopalian's...ouch, that's gotta hurt!


And uhh, the church feared being used?  But they are OK using loose morals standards to fill their collection plates?

Yeah, uhh huh.  I think latter day Episcopal leaders will find they and many of their collegues are well represented in hell.  Misery loves company!


Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

I see. Leaving your wife for another man qualifies you to be a bishop, like Gene Robinson. A messy divorce is too much, though?
