You can't have it both ways!

Last month, Skye Puppy posted a piece about an Episcopal priest who claimed she was both a Christian and a muslim. Today in CAIR's daily whine-o-gram, they lamented the Episcopal decision that she will not be able to serve as a priest for a year, according to her bishop.

Redding was scheduled to teach part time as an assistant professor at Jesuit-run Seattle University this fall. Needless to say, plans have changed. One can just imagine how confused her students would be upon hearing her rhetoric?

The Seattle Times reported in an email, from the Rt. Rev. Geralyn Wolf, to Episcopal Church leaders; Redding is expected to "reflect on the doctrines of the Christian faith, her vocation as a priest, and what I see as the conflicts inherent in professing both Christianity and Islam," .

It's about time someone stood up to this nonsense and I applaud the church leaders, however, I see a lawsuit in their future.

Wow! I've been a little out of touch, so I didn't see the latest on the Islamo-priest. Good to see that somebody in the Episcopal church has a functioning brain on his shoulders.
