At an interfaith inaugural worship service at Cascade United Methodist Church in Atlanta marking the beginning of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed's second term, the Episcopal Bishop of Atlanta Rob Wright made comments that fundamentally denied the Christian Faith and his ordination vows.

WRIGHT: Greetings to you in the name of Yahweh the Almighty, in the name of Allah the beneficent and merciful. Greetings to you in the name of the Eternal One who gave the Buddha his great enlightenment, and in the name of the Hindus' Supreme Being that orders the cosmos.

VOL: This is a fundamental denial of the uniqueness of Faith in the Holy Trinity. The First Article (of the 39 Articles) reads thus: "There is but one living and true God, everlasting, without body, parts, or passions; of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the Maker, and Preserver of all things both visible and invisible. And in unity of this Godhead there be three Persons, of one substance, power, and eternity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost."
