Two homosexuals nominated for Bishop of Los Angeles.

Amongst the six nominees for the job of assistant Bishop of Los Angeles two gay Episcopalian priests were selected. Both reverend John L. Kirkley from San Francisco as well as Mary Douglas Glasspool from Maryland have a relationship with someone of the same sex. The nominations come two weeks after the Anglican clerics in the United States rejected the proposal to not appoint gay priests for the next three years.

We will hear who will become the new assistant of the Bishop sometime in December.
Also in the community of Minnesota a lesbian is candidate for Bishop. Reverend Bonnie Perry from Chicago is one ofthe three candidates for the vacancy. She is in a twenty-year relationship with another woman.

The Episcopal church almost fell apart in 2003 over the appointment of gay bishops. Recently ordained Bishop Gene Robinson was the centre of this commotion.

His appointment almost caused a fisure between the traditional African branch and the more liberal Western branch of the community.

The last three years there have been no new gay Bishops ordained.
