Bishop’s sermon shows her spirit

I was saddened and appalled, but not surprised, by the vindictive and mean-spirited language Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori used in her Jan. 26 sermon in Charleston. Alluding to Bishop Mark Lawrence as a “tyrant” and comparing him to “citizens’ militias deciding to patrol the Mexican border for unwelcome visitors” was unconscionable. Going on to equate his actions with “school shootings, or those who want to arm school children or the terrorism that takes oil workers hostage” was despicable.
