Jackson Named ‘Presiding Bishop’ of Organization He Created

Jackson Named ‘Presiding Bishop’ of Organization He Created July 3, 2012

In an incredibly surprising move, the International Communion of Evangelical Churches has named Bishop Harry Jackson the “presiding bishop” of that organization, which he founded himself a year ago. Right Wing Watch links to the video of the incredibly elaborate and, presumably, expensive elevation ceremony.

  • You ain’t seen nothing. Wait until he makes pope. After all, if his craving for adulation is such that he needs this after only a year, the sky is the limit!

  • John Hinkle

    His shoulders must be double jointed, what with all that self back slapping.

  • Not that anyone should be surprised, but their web site reveals the true purpose of his organization:

    Member Churches are to give a tithe of a tithe to the International Communion. Apostolic Council Members give a tithe to the Presiding Bishop plus their churches give a tithe of a tithe to the International Communion.

    Reminds me of how Randy Paul created his own accrediting organization and then used it to declare himself accredited.

    They are trying so hard to look like Episcopalians.

    @tacitus:

    The actual purpose of this organisation is for US-style evangelical churches to kid themselves that they haven’t left Christianity.

    If you’re not part of one or more ecumencial communions (and there’s no shortage of them to choose from), you’re not part of the major world religion. The SBC, for example, left its last ecumenical communion (the Baptist World Alliance) in 2004, because even that was insufficiently wingnut for their post-fundamentalist-takeover-era tastes.

    I predict that this “communion” will implode from infighting, or stay tiny because for reasons of ideological purity. Most likely, it will be both.
