Jefferts Schori speaks on Pittsburgh, racism and more

The Columbus Dispatch reports on Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori’s visit to Trinity Episcopal Church–the site of her election as presiding bishop:

On Saturday in Philadelphia, Jefferts Schori apologized for the Episcopal Church’s role in perpetuating and profiting from slavery.

There is a parallel between the historic oppression of black people and the challenges that gays and lesbians face, she said.

“It’s an age-old human struggle over who’s an accepted member of the community,” she said.

Jefferts Schori’s appearance at the National Cathedral’s Sunday Forum is also online.
