Dual profiles: Lee and Minns

Michelle Boorstein of The Washington Post has written profiles of Bishops Martyn Minns and Peter James Lee. Minns, I think, gets the easier treatment. There is no blustering voice from the left in his profile, but David Anderson is allowed to take a cheap shot at Lee, and Bob Duncan manages to be both unctious and condescending at the same time. On the other hand, Boorstein paraphrases many of the criticisms that I think Minns’ detractors from the left and center would have made, so maybe it’s a wash.

I am quoted in the profile of Bishop Lee. I was attempting to explain that while many of us who support he full inclusion of gays and lesbians in the Church admire Bishop Lee, we don’t always consider him an ally.
