We wonder. Certainly things don't seem to be happy in Whoville. We remember that it was Louie Crew who was at the mic on the floor of the House of Deputies urging his fellow deputies to vote down B033 in the closing hours of General Convention last summer in Columbus. As he finished speaking, newly-elected Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, in an unprecedented move, walked into the House and took the podium, persuading the deputies to support her and support B033.
Louie's back at the mic - only this time the Presiding Bishop is sequestered with the Executive Council on her "home" turf in Oregon and he's back in Newark. We wonder, are they listening to Louie this time - or to Katharine? The Episcopal Church is at the crossroads - who will carry the day?
