Katharine Jefferts Schori Gets Given a Honorary Doctor of Divinity

From Huron University College:

From here:

The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, received an honorary doctor of divinity degree from Huron University College, London, Ont., as part of its May 5 theology convocation. Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, delivered the citation, and the Right Rev. Robert Bennett, Bishop of Huron, hooded Bishop Jefferts Schori.

In her address to students, she appeared to believe she was on a quest to unknown lands and had discovered dragons. This must be a reference to New Hampshire and Gene Robinson:

The faithful are all on that kind of journey into the unknown, she said. “We’re like the explorers who went looking for the places on old maps beyond the known world labelled ‘There be dragons.’”

She obviously sees herself as an “intrepid leader” as she heads the charge of Western Anglicanism down a metaphysical latrine:

She called journeying an ancient image for honing leaders. “Leadership asks us to be agents of change and to take others with us,” she said. “The voyage is rarely calm these days.

And believes that Jesus had internal demons with whom he wrestled:

These are times for courageous and intrepid leaders, for those who will try seemingly impossible things, and, like Jesus, wrestle with internal demons and more worldly dragons.”

No wonder she received a Doctor of Divinity from Huron University College.

No wonder indeed!

A Doctor of Divinity for rendering asunder the Anglican Communion it should be, yes.
