"In this century it is one of the most important decisions the Church of England has had to take."

MINNEAPOLIS - Despite warnings of a split by tradition-minded congregations around the globe, the American Episcopal Church took a major step yesterday toward confirming the first openly gay bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion. By a healthy margin, the House of Deputies at the church's national convention ratified the election of the Rev. V. Gene Robinson as the bishop of New Hampshire. The matter now goes to the church's House of Bishops, which is expected to make a final decision on Robinson's confirmation today.

Matthew Hay Brown's fine article about the election of my colleague, the Rev. Canon Mary Glasspool, as a bishop suffragan in the Diocese of Los Angeles ("Annapolis cleric's election is making waves and history," Dec. 9) adds to the joy felt by those of us those in Maryland who have been graced by her ministries since 1992. She will take office when approved by a majority of the other dioceses and consecrated by our presiding bishop, the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori. Our loss is California's gain.

The humbling thing, for the Rev. Canon Mary D. Glasspool, has been the e-mail. The election over the weekend of the Annapolis priest to be the first openly lesbian bishop in the worldwide Anglican Communion drew a stern rebuke from the Archbishop of Canterbury, spiritual leader of the 70 million-member church. Struggling to hold together a denomination divided over homosexuality, Archbishop Rowan D. Williams warned that Glasspool's confirmation could jeopardize relations in a church already in turmoil after the consecration of an openly gay bishop in 2003.

The Vatican's just-announced effort to recruit unhappy Anglicans away from a church that has embraced female priests and elected an openly gay bishop provides the Catholic Church with a way to deal with its shortage of priests - without allowing Catholic women to be ordained and without ending the celibacy rule. If Anglican clergy and seminarians are among those who convert, the Vatican potentially gets more married men in its ranks of priests while continuing to forbid Catholic priests and seminarians to wed. In fact, this very thing has been happening on a small scale for years.

WOODBRIDGE, Va. -- The Anglican archbishop of Nigeria, Peter J. Akinola, installed Bishop Martyn Minns of Virginia yesterday as the new leader of a diocese that would take in congregations around the country that want to leave the Episcopal Church, rejecting requests by leaders of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church to refrain from taking part in the ceremony. Akinola's role in the installation celebration for Minns forged another tie in an increasingly confident alliance between theological traditionalists in the United States and church leaders overseas who are opposed to the Episcopal Church's liberal stance on homosexuality.

An Anglican Communion panel in London rebuked the Episcopal Church yesterday for approving its first gay bishop, but the Episcopal leadership showed no sign of retreat in a simmering dispute that has threatened to split the global church. The report, issued by an advisory commission of the worldwide Anglican Communion, called for the Episcopal Church to express regret for consecrating Bishop V. Gene Robinson, who leads the Diocese of New Hampshire, and place a moratorium on similar promotions.
