Adventures in Liberal Religion

The Rt. Rev. John Bryson Chane, the Episcopal Bishop of the nation’s capital and Dean of National Cathedral, delivered a real lulu of a Christmas sermon this year. Excerpt:

And what was God thinking… when the Angel Gabriel was sent by God to reveal the Law to Moses? And what was God thinking… when the Angel Gabriel was sent by God to reveal the sacred Quran to the prophet Muhammad? And what was God thinking… when the Angel Gabriel was sent by God to reveal the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God?

It will come as news to many Christians that an Anglican bishop believes that the Islamic revelation was true, not false, as Christianity teaches implicitly. Nevertheless, a Michigan lawyer friend suggests that Bp. Chane has opened up a new and exciting area for exploring ecumenism/syncretism. Now, the Episcopalians of Washington can have a gay wedding in the church, and push a wall over on the two grooms at the reception.
