The Diocese of Northern California recently elected the Rev. Canon Barry Beisner as their next bishop. Beisner has been married three times, his first two marriages having ended in divorce.

From last Saturday's Sacramento Bee: "It's not a big issue that is being discussed by a lot of people. Only a small group of conservatives are making an issue out of it," says Jan Nunley, director of communication for the Episcopal Church.
