Episcopal Church Votes to Allow Transgender Ministers

A day after a legislative body of the Episcopal Church voted to sell the denomination's New York headquarters amid budget cuts and declining membership, church leaders on Saturday adopted legislation to give transgenders the right to become lay and ordained ministers.

At the church's ongoing week-long General Convention in Indianapolis, Ind., the House of Bishops approved proposal that would amend two canons to prohibit discrimination based on "gender identity or expression" in the lay and ordained ministry discernment process and in the overall life, worship and governance of the church, Episcopal News Service reported. ...

Speaking of signs, does anyone know what meaning the Episcopal Church has attached to the welcome sign in this news article? Specifically, I'm speaking of the rainbow colors. Do they carry the biblical significance of the sign of God's covenant of peace or do they signify open arms to the homosexual/transgender/whatever community?
It's a shame this question should even arise but I honestly don't know and it wouldn't surprise me if it were the latter.
I also believe it is the latter, bro. Just like Nick Clegg hoisting the rainbow flag over Whitehall. It's a first methinks.

If you were debating that the ordination of women in the pulpit wasn't unbiblical, and was harmless, go ask Rev. Susan Russell & Rev. Carolyn Woodall what's in store down the road.

Every cult, occult and paganism had godesses and high priestesses exalted in positions in mockery of Gods prescribed order.

Pentacostalism, which some of the undiscerning us are so affectionate towards, has as many women preachers and prophetesses as their dead that are raised, or the ones that have come back from a special tour of heaven, or ....

Sick!!

They may as well stick a chimp into the pulpit. I suppose because chimps are straight they wouldn't fit in.

The wealthiest, most staid, unflappable demonination of the early 20th Century has become a circus with literal high-wire acts during worship and now baffoon bishops orchestrating it all.
