So +Peter Jensen is still an Asshat…

Here’s the proof: Australian archbishop – approval of female bishops ‘shaky’

Just in case you were worried:

To address those who are aggrieved about the issue, a new organisation, known as the Association for the Apostolic Ministry, was set up jointly by both the Bishop of Ballarat and the Sydney Anglican Archbishop in October to help them.

Some of the activities the new ministry will undertake include locating people who have objections, representing their interests, and educating the Church about the biblical teachings on this issue, reported the Sydney Anglican media portal.

Meanwhile, Dr Jensen is negotiating a national protocol to protect congregations that do not recognise female bishops as representatives of their diocese, and is following the footsteps of his predecessor, Archbishop Harry Goodhew, in declining to recognise women’s Episcopal bishop orders and their priestly duties.

Feh. Asshattery.

    Is that what the thing on top of his head is? I’ve been calling it a mitre all this time!

    Where’s the national protocol to protect people from and educate them on the dangers of Dr. Jensen? Sigh.

    All that”s missing from this little pronouncement is what kind of wood they will be using to burn “those heretics” at the stake. Can’t we get some calendars to the Aussies to let them know the dark ages are over? No, I guess not, since we can’t even get them to Jackie Boy.
