Rejoice with the American Episcopal Church

American Episcopalians have elected a woman as the Presiding Bishop for the
first time in their history. My response: rejoice and again I say rejoice.
The Americans are leading the way in what it means to be a truly
life-affirming church. Read about The Rt Revd Kathrine Jefferts Schori here

It was also reported in the press this week that she refereed to Jesus Christ as a woman...

In fact Bishop Schori referred to Jesus Christ as "our mother" which is a quote from the writings of the English mystic Mother Julian of Norwich from the 14th century! So not exactly novel.
