Jihadi Jills

What do Fatma An-Najar (the 64-year-old grandmother of 41, mother of 8, who on Thanksgiving Day went to the place where suicide bombers are rewarded), Katharine Jefferts Schori (the new Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, whose view is that there is no such place), Condoleezza Rice, and Scarlett Johansson (you know who they are) have in common?

They're the subject of Mark Steyn's column today.

The Presiding Bishop was asked by the New York Times if Episcopalians were interested in replenishing their ranks by having children:
"No," agreed Bishop Kate. "It's probably the opposite. We encourage people to pay attention to the stewardship of the earth and not use more than their portion."

Now, that may or may not be a great idea, but it's nothing to do with Christianity, only for eco-cultists like Al Gore. If Bishop Kate were an Episcogorian, a member of the Alglican Communion, an elder of the Church of Latter-Day Chads, this would be an unremarkable statement. But, even in their vigorous embrace of gay bishoprics and all the rest, I don't recall the Episcopalians formally embracing the strategy that worked out so swell for the Shakers and enshrining a disapproval of reproduction at the heart of their doctrine.
Oh, my.
