Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jane Holmes Dixon is a retired American Episcopal bishop. She served as Bishop of Washington pro tempore from 2001 to June 2002 in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. Previously, she had served as Bishop Suffragan from 1992 to 2001. She was the second woman consecrated as a bishop in the Episcopal Church. During her tenure as Bishop pro tempore, Dixon sued in federal court to remove a priest, Samuel Edwards, from a rectorship in Accokeek, Maryland. Dixon had refused to approve Edward's appointment early in 2001, since Edwards opposed the Church's beliefs about female and homosexual ministers. Following several months of acrimony, Dixon and the Episcopal Church filed suit to have Edwards removed. The court ruled in the Church's favor in October. After several appeals, the lawsuit was dropped. Bishop Dixon retired following the election of Bishop John B. Chane.show more
