On Saturday, the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles elected Mary Glasspool to be suffragan bishop. Bp-elect Glasspool is a lesbian.
The Archbishop of Canterbury issued a brief statement wringing his hands about the implications of this election in the midst of tensions in the Anglican Communion. We may strain the bonds of affection, he says.

What has happened to him?
