Making the Headline Perfectly Clear

Reading about the consecrations that took place in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles Saturday, I ran across the headline “Episcopal Church ordains openly lesbian woman as bishop” on a story dated yesterday. The same Web site, Examiner.com, also has a story titled “US Episcopal Church ordains first lesbian bishop” carrying the same date. The stories are written by different reporters; I don’t know who writes the headlines for Examiner.com. In any case, the second headline is the more inviting. After all, was the first headline really intended to clarify that the lesbian made a bishop in Long Beach was a woman and not a man?

  2. Off-topic, but certainly welcome. It is refreshing to see a politician who can read the writing on the wall and take a hit for the country.
