Times Union on Bishop Bena

An Episcopal switch reflects divisions in church: Former Albany assistant bishop joins group that opposes policy on gays

The TU article prominently displays the bias its writer has previously shown toward the Diocese of Albany. And, the issue is still incorrectly characterized as being only about gays, while Bishop Bena’s clear and gracious letter (which is quoted in the article, and below) makes it very clear this is not the case.

How very sad, also, that while there are none here in Albany “happy” about the state of the church, there are many who understand Bishop Bena’s new call as a good thing for the Kingdom of God in spite of any personal sadness at the need for him to minister elsewhere and the article does not contain that aspect of the story.
