Friday Squid Blogging: Former Squid Researcher to Lead Episcopal Church
Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori of Nevada was elected as presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church:
A former research oceanographer who studied squid, octopuses and creatures living in marine mud, she was a second-career priest who was ordained in 1994.
The jokes have begun:
One wag noted that the study of invertebrates makes Bishop Schori supremely qualified to rule the ECUSA. She’s studied oysters and squids…this is a mental picture that I really did not need. Is this a case of ‘squid pro quo’?
Do you suspect that ECUSA elected an oceanographer as its primate in recognition that it is floundering?
