Our Mother Jesus?

This is from an ex-Episcopalian and it is amazing. He makes the point that women in preistly orders is pretty much a done deal for the Episcopal church. That acceptance of homosexuality is a foregone conclusion. So when R. Andrew Newman saw a woman appointed to head the ECUSA he didn’t bat an eye.

Till she opened her mouth and said:

Colossians calls Jesus the firstborn of all creation, the firstborn from the dead. That sweaty, bloody, tear-stained labor of the cross bears new life. Our mother Jesus gives birth to a new creation – and you and I are His children.

Newman rightly responded “Our mother Jesus?”
