Woman may become 2nd openly gay Episcopal bishop
AP

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - An openly lesbian priest is among the candidates for assistant bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. If elected Saturday, she would become the second openly gay bishop in the national church and the global Anglican fellowship.

Two rounds of voting at the diocese's annual convention late Friday did not produce a winner. Balloting resumed at 9 a.m. Saturday.

When voting ended Friday, the Rev. Mary D. Glasspool of Baltimore, who has a female partner, was drawing a large share of votes. Another gay candidate, the Rev. John L. Kirkley of San Francisco, withdrew late Friday, winnowing the original field of candidates to five.

The Episcopal Church, which is the Anglican body in the United States, caused an uproar in 2003 by consecrating the first openly gay bishop, V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire.
