From Our Department Of Amazingly Unsurprising Things…

…via Box Turtle Bulletin, comes this story out of Fresno California…

San Joaquin diocese will leave U.S. Episcopal Church

Delegates at the annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin voted Saturday in Fresno to withdraw from the U.S. Episcopal Church. With the decision, the diocese is the first to leave the U.S. Episcopal Church, which has 110 dioceses and 2.4 million members.

Delegates said they voted to break away from the church because it allows the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of gay bishops and the ordination of women.

Women and Gays and Liberals Oh My!  Women and Gays and Liberals Oh My!  That’s San Joaquin as in San Joaquin Valley…the sullen and resentful red heartland of California.  If the California coast and its coniferous mountain north are laid back, progressive wonderlands, the San Joaquin valley is Rush Limbaughville.  Agrarian, xenophobic, insular, it’s the Antebellum South, only with lots and lots of irrigation and Hispanics playing the part of the darkies picking in the fields.  The only surprising thing about this is they didn’t bolt back when women got the robe.  Oh…and they’re aligning with the South American church instead of the murderous Bishop Akinola.  But he was probably a shade too dark for them.
