Oh, and one last thing
But I really feel offended at the way Native culture is being used by the Anglican Church. All this stuff of drumming, dancing, chanting, sweetgrass-burning, and smudging is purely for photo-op purposes. When it's time for business, surprise! "Our Native brothers and sisters" are rather conservative on the subject of homosexual marriage, and so suddenly they're just like those primitives in Africa - off to the back of the bus with you, and thanks for the bead-and-feather show. It's that same magpie instinct that Mrs. Schori has demonstrated so often - pick up the bright shinies from other religions and carry them back to decorate the nest. But that's ALL they are - decoration. It's not taking them seriously at all. I think it's more insulting to other religions than just leaving them alone.
