one sometimes wonders
Read the wikipedia article about the Rt. Rev. James Pike, fifth bishop of California. He was one of the first bishops bold enough to deny the virginity of the Blessed Virgin, trinitarian orthodoxy, and a number of other denials that are now rather pedestrian within ECUSA. Grace Cathedral, in San Francisco, calls him a "Spiritual iconoclast and theological pioneer, [who] helped to prepare the way for the church in the new millennium."
Was he a prophet? Well, he died prophetically... of hunger and thirst, wondering around lost in the Judean Wilderness. Sad.
