The nominees for the next bishop, the bishop ordinary, the chief honcho and hierophant, have been announced. The news, of course, is that one of the candidates, Tracey Lind, is married to someone of the same sex. Nothing about her extraordinary competence. Her reputation is of someone who gets things done, a woman of high expectations.
I’m not sure if she is the best candidate for this diocese or not, but she should be judged on her talent and the quality of her public relationships; not on her partner’s gender.
