from South Whidbey Record:

"'The Bishopís Daughter' is a story of a complex, visionary man; a chronicle of a daughterís turbulent relationship with her father, who privately struggled with his sexuality, while she openly explored hers, and a searching account of the consequences of sexual secrets ...

"Moore felt that one of her fatherís most courageous acts was ordaining Ellen Marie Barrett, the first person of openly gay orientation to become an Episcopal priest.

Moore recalled her fatherís excitement during that period.

"'How much richer that story becomes when we understand more about the man who performed that ordination,' she wrote.'It never occurred to me when my father and I talked about Ellen Barrettís priesthood that he identified with her, that in ordaining her, he was retrieving part of himself.'"

Only in TEC has ordination become a form of self-therapy.

“Plays well with others.”

The layfolk are the one's taking the risk when an Episcopal bishop ordains candidates based on sexual preference for his own "theraputic" purposes.
