But ain't we gonna "live into our Baptismal Covenant"?

One of the Episcopal Whatever's "Peace, Flowers and Justice" leaders recently spoke about "living into our Baptismal Covenant." That usually means, "Forget all the parts about Jesus, and about rejecting the devil, evil forces, personal sin and the like. It's all about 'social justice', peace and human dignity (cough * political correctness * cough)."

So, if that's the case, then what's up with the Episcopal leaders' aggressive and probably illegal efforts to get rid of Bishop Bob Duncan of Pittsburgh? Asks a friend by email:

"So what is with this bit in the baptismal covenant: 'Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?' as it applies to Bob Duncan? A trial behind his back, a deposition without a trial or inhibition -where is justice? where is dignity? Apparently this only applies to some people!"

Will wait with bated breath for a peaceful, just and respectful reply from The Episcopal Whatever.
