The news from California: it’s Andrus

The Diocese of California hasn’t elected a bishop yet, but I think it is safe to say that it will not choose one of the gay candidates. On the first ballot, Mark Andrus the suffrgan bishop of Alabama got 45 percent of the clergy vote and 24 percent of the lay vote. Eugene Sutton, canon pastor of Washington National Cathedral got 40 percent of the lay vote and 16 percent of the clergy vote. No one else is close.

Update: The Rt. Rev. Mark Andrus, suffragan bishop of Alabama, has been elected the next bishop of California on the third ballot.
