Episcopalians React to Inhibition of Bristol Priest

Connecticut's Episcopal Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Andrew D. Smith, "inhibited" the Rev. Mark Hansen of St. John's Episcopal Church in Bristol over a dispute stemming from Bishop Smith's approval of the consecration of an openly homosexual man as a bishop. The inhibition has the effect of barring Rev. Hansen from performing the duties of a priest for six months. The Courant reports that locks have been changed and another priest, the Rev. Susan J. McCone, has been appointed to perform pastoral duties. Parishioners are also none-too-pleased and weighing their options.
