Former NJ Governor Jim McGreevey Denied Priesthood for “Being a Jackass”

Well, at least we know the Episcopals are honest

Former New Jersey Jim McGreevey—who came out amidst scandal and eventually stepped down from office in 2004—has been denied his bid to join the priesthood of the Episcopal Church. Sources say he was denied because of the way he handled himself during his very public divorce.  “It was not being gay but for being a jackass—[McGreevey] didn’t come out of the whole divorce looking good,” said a source with the Episcopal Diocese of Newark.
