Traditional Religious Group Opposed to Female Bishop

On April 13, a group of 60 members from the Concerned Parishioners of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington gathered outside of the National Cathedral to protest the local appearances of Jane Holmes Dixon, one of six female assistant Episcopal bishops in the U.S. The protesters oppose the Church's liberal policy towards ordaining women, and gay men and lesbians. The group claims the Church is more concerned with political theology than adhering to a traditional belief of the Holy Scriptures.
