This just keeps getting more and more interesting...

Fr. H tipped me off to this aspect of the appointment of Bishop-Elect Swain which I had overlooked. I find this really interesting in that it is conventional wisdom, at least among a certain segment of the clergy with which I speak, that being a convert is an automatic "veto" on being named a bishop. As the last 20 years has seen a dramatic uptick in the number of converts amongst the clergy, it will be interesting to see how this shakes out.
