American Bishop Gene Robinson condemns Rick Perry’s anti-gay promotion
ATV Today ^ | Dec. 16 2011 | Ian Westhead

Posted on 12/27/2011 9:00:00 PM PST by WilliamIII

The USA’s first openly gay Episcopal bishop, Gene Robinson, has responded to presidential hopeful Rick Perry's anti-gay TV promotion suggesting that "it must break God's heart to see religion used in a political campaign like this."

Bishop Robinson of the Episcopal Church showed his distaste in a TV interview with MSNBC and also by writing an opinion piece in the Washington Post newspaper.

Perry had stated in his commercial that “You don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.”

Bishop Robinson responded with, “I think it must break God’s heart to see religion used in a political campaign like this” adding “There is something wrong in America, he [Perry] got that right. But it’s when we denigrate our brave soldiers. Those gay and lesbian people, who are risking their lives for us.”

Now gayness has to trump even religion in importance. We all warned that this was trouble.

Perry gets the common sense award for this. Who knows, maybe this kind of moxie, telling the truth when nobody else dares to tell it, will propel him back up in the polls.

As a former senior warden, I was devastated when the church went gay and Marxist.

You know what breaks God’s heart? When those who impersonate bishops of Jesus Christ flaunt their filthy and profligate behaviors for the world to see—and are actually proud of them.

+5 for Perry.

My only problem with what Perry said was using the term "gay". They are not gay in the true meaning of the word. These depraved creatures are anything but gay -- they are miserable and twisted -- far from being joyful and happy since they are deliberately opposing Almighty God.

I'd have given a +100 to Governor Rick Perry if he had courageously called these vile beings what they really are: sodomites.

That aside, I support Perry's principled stand on this matter.

It is obscene that this person has the title “Bishop” in front of his name. He is a disgusting person who parades and brags about his evil sin. He needs to get on his knees and repent and apologize to all rational, thinking human beings for his lies and embracing Satan. Such a sick example for children and families.

What must break God's heart is to see this modern day Pharisee proclaim that God Himself is a liar. God's word is very clear regarding the practice of homosexuality. With his deception Robinson is leading many people on a path straight to Hell and he will be held directly accountable on judgment day. Robinson will pay a severe penalty for all of eternity where 1,000 years of torment will be like a forever now.

What must break God’s heart is a pro-gay man like you in a pulpit Gene Robinson or whatever your name is. You’re a sign of the Last Days. Wake up before it is too late.

(Book of Deuteronomy)
Chapter 22

A woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whosoever doeth these things is an abomination unto HaShem thy G-d.

(Book of Leviticus)
Chapter 18

22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination.
23
And thou shalt not lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith; neither shall any woman stand before a beast, to lie down thereto; it is perversion.

I don't think it would be possible for the MSNBC interviewer to have fawned or flattered Robinson to any greater extent. He clearly and openly made every effort possible to demonstrate that he was in full support of Robinson and his position. Another Journ-O-Lists in action.

I think it’s more likely that God’s heart is broken by seeing Bishops who pack fudge and then claim to speak for him.

Robinson is a self-promoting sex pervert and alcoholic who has done more to hasten the decline of the Episcopal Church and other (formerly) mainline Protestant denominations than any leftist windbag on the planet.

Well Mr Robinson I would suggest that it breaks God’s Heart to see the Church have unrepentent homosexuals as priests. Explain to me Mr Robinson how you would go about convincing a person to not do some sin when?

Once these gay blades get into the churches, what do they do? Of course, start weighing in politically for homos using their status and position.

He dumped his wife and kids for another lover and the church promoted him to Bishop.

It was a humorous expression. “You rang?” was the trademark line of the late Bob Denver’s Maynerd G. Krebs character in the 1950s sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. I was responding to one who had suggested burning Bishop Vicki Gene at the stake. See my tagline for the rest. BTW, I would do the same for offending “Catholic” bishops.

Thank those "conservatives" and Libertarians who said, "we don't care what two people do behind closed doors." That attitude has spawned this metastasis.
