It’s Sunday Funday! That means it’s a solid day to fake an engagement to get free champagne and read some good gay news, so let’s get to it!
The United Methodist Church has deliberately disobeyed its own doctrine and elected a lesbian Bishop. Sidebar, this seems like actually the perfect time to use the praise hands emoji.
The Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church, defying denominational doctrine against homosexuality, has elected an out lesbian bishop.
Rev. Dr. Karen Oliveto, elected Friday night in Scottsdale, Ariz., becomes the first openly LGBT bishop in the church’s history, the Associated Press reports. She has been pastor of Glide Memorial United Methodist Church in San Francisco. As bishop of the Western Jurisdiction, she will oversee churches in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.
“Today we took a step closer to embody beloved community and while we may be moving there, we are not there yet,” Oliveto said in a statement published on the denomination’s website. “We are moving on to perfection.” She is married to another clergy member, Rev. Robin Ridenour.
