... 2009 was a watershed year for the Anglican Communion and its U.S. branch, the Episcopal Church. In January, conservatives launched the rival Anglican Church in North America. Six months later, Episcopalians threw off pressure from sister churches in the Anglican Communion and lifted a three-year-old moratorium on gay bishops, and also voted to allow the blessing of same-sex relationships. By December, Episcopalians in Los Angeles upped the ante by electing a lesbian, the Rev. Mary Glasspool, as assistant bishop—a move that could jeopardize Episcopalians’ role in the wider communion.
