Bishop Corletta J. Vaughn Defends Bishop Wayne T. Jackson’s Unusual Consecration, But Not for Herself

Original post from Jan. 28, 2013:

We want to thank GCM Watch for this update. There is a woman who goes by the name Bishop Corletta J. Vaughn and she had some interesting things to say about Bishop Wayne T. Jackson‘s, what some are calling a ‘full body consecration’.

It seems that after Bishop Wayne T. Jackson’s video recording of his unusual consecration ceremonies became public news recently, he has one fan on his side in the matter. Let us mention firstly that Bishop Corletta J. Vaughn was not always a fan of the particular consecration and let’s find out what she called it before the news broke and folks went against him.

She once called the consecration of bishops “pageantry” yet admittedly refused to allow it performed on her, she is now defending the practice. Bishop Vaughn made it public when she posted this on her Facebook page:

“I will attempt to help some of you understand this procedure. Because the Episcopacy has been so cheapened and people are BUYING the bishopric, true pageantry has been lost and most of you who are watching and talking have NEVER attended a REAL “Consecration” service. Bishop Wayne T. Jackson is a MAN OF GOD! You don’t have to understand this type of “investiture” for the new bishops, but you have NO RIGHT to make it ungodly, or unholy; or give reason to make Bishop Jackson unclean or give rise to rumors or suspicion.

GCM Watch stated when later questioned on the issue, Vaughn admitted the practice was ‘controversial’ and again would not allow it performed on her.

“When I was consecrated as a Bishop, My Chief Presider did NOT lay on me! I was asked if that’s the format I wanted and I said NO. Obviously these men agreed and said yes. Its their experience and their elevation. I have NOTHING to say about it being right or wrong.”

GCM Watch also noted that Vaughn called full body covering an “ancient rite” but could not provide any evidence of its origins, practitioners (outside of Jackson’s “reformation”) or if such an “ancient rite” was sanctioned by scripture.

We wonder why she is now defending the practice of ‘laying on men’ as an acceptable consecration practice that  she can not even comprehend?
