Gay Bishop Says No to Ultimatum

The first openly gay Episcopal bishop, whose consecration has brought the world’s Anglicans to the brink of schism, said Tuesday that the Episcopal Church should not give in to demands that it roll back its acceptance of gays.

We all tend to pick and choose what we want to believe, or follow, in the Bible. We’re in the wrong, plain and simple. There are some rules that were laid down that had more to do with the times, the lack of sufficient hygiene, and no USDA. However, there are some laws that were not meant to be dismissed with the passage of time.

I find it disturbing that those in the clergy are doing some picking and choosing of their own. Shouldn’t those we look to for guidance be held to a higher standard? The more secular they become, the more lost we become.

A couple of passages came to mind:

Deuteronomy 12:32 See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

Leviticus18:22 Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

It’s not my job to pass judgment on anyone, casting stones would get ’em coming right back to me. I honestly don’t care if there are gay clergy, although I find it odd that they would be pushing such an agenda.

Robinson said gays and lesbians were being asked to sacrifice much more than others. He compared Anglicans who oppose full acceptance of gays and lesbians to the Pharisees, and said Jesus would never have been asked to halt his ministries out of sensitivity to them.

An odd reaction, in my opinion.  Pushing for acceptance of a practice that was stated as being “detestable” is rather bizarre.

  1. What it shows is the hypocrisy that MANY in the clergy try to push off as ‘normal’ so that they can indulge in their favorite perversions…

    Sick SOB’s in my opinion…
