Let's talk about arch bishops - it's a first

One of my major problems with organized religion is how low women of faith often place within each respective faith's power hierarchy (both here on earth and in the presumed afterlife). So it's with great joy that I see that Sweden's 70th elected arch bishop is, for the first time, a woman: Antje Jackelén.

Antje is into environmental issues and LGBT rights and claims that humor is very important to her. I feel respect and interest come rushing in. Go, Antje.

Since I'm on the topic of faith, this is how I personally view my existence:
Transmitter and receiver, perceiver, a hopeful non-believer.
