One Down…

So it looks like Rev. William Melnyk one of the two Episcopal priests accused of being secret Pagans due to their membership with a Druid group has resigned from his post (his wife Rev. Glyn Ruppe-Melnyk is still serving and awaiting word on what her punishment will be).

“It’s like a death. This is a parish that’s been flourishing, and we owe a lot of that to Bill Melnyk.” -Barbara Monaghan, a 19-year parishioner

I doubt his resignation has anything to do with the ongoing barrage from orthodox and conservative Chrisitans. I’m sure having his faith questioned publicly over and over again just strengthened his love for Christ.

Needless to say, we Pagans would be happy to embrace them both. We need leaders who can inspire and lead as they obviously could. I anxiously await the fate of Glyn Ruppe-Melnyk.
