Homosexuality isn't the only issue, bishop tells interviewer

[Episcopal News Service] As Episcopal Diocese of Northwest Texas Bishop C. Wallis Ohl recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of his consecration, he sat down with the religion editor of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal newspaper to reflect on his tenure.

Ohl, 63, told reporter Beth Pratt that not the least of his challenges has been the Episcopal Church's continuing quarrel over homosexuality.

"It doesn't matter what the issue is," Ohl said. "We're going to have something to argue about as long as we have human beings. How do we treat one another in the midst of all that is, for me, more important than anything else - as brothers and sisters in the Lord or with 'no, not as long as you disagree with me.' "
