Pomp and Circumstance Signifying Nothing: "Bishop" Harry Jackson's Consecration As Something, Something, Something

Proclaiming yourself "Bishop" of anything these days is old hat: "Bishop" Eddie Long joined of a group and proclaimed themselves "bishops" - even though they were supposed to be Southern Baptists - a denomination which does no have a hierarchy as such. And there's "Bishop" T.D.Jakes, another prosperity preacher who needed the moniker to give cache to his ministry.  According to wikipedia: This usage is especially common in African American churches in the USA.

Now "Bishop" Harry Jackson has been declared International Presiding Bishop of the International Communion of Evangelical Churches. 
The ICEC, however, is something that Jackson dreamt up in his own little homophobic and mysogynistic mind.
