Archbishops To Ask Clergy: 'Are You Having Gay Sex?' Openly gay clerics will be questioned about the intimate detail of their sex life on behalf of the Archbishops of Canterbury or York before they can be considered to be a bishop, the Church of England has disclosed.
Dr Jeffrey John, who is in a celibate civil partnership, was twice in line to become a bishop but his appointment was blocked because of opposition from conservatives within the Church By John Bingham 14 Jun 2013 A legal briefing sent to members of the General Synod reveals that under a new policy any priest in a civil partnership will have to convince an archbishop that they are not sexually active before their name can go forward.
It was drawn up in light of a u-turn by the church last year which lifted a blanket ban on anyone in a civil partnership becoming a bishop.
The House of Bishops voted in December to allow priests in same-sex unions to be considered as long as they claim not to be sexually active. The decision was met with criticism from both liberals and traditionalists alike and triggered open calls from some clergy for their gay counterparts simply to lie. Gay rights campaigners derided the new policy questioning how the Church of England planned to police it.
A briefing paper drawn up by the churchs legal office, assessing the implications of the new policy under the Equality Act, says that sexual orientation should be irrelevant in assessing someones suitability to become a bishop.
But it maintains the requirement for celibacy adding that bishops' private lives must be in accordance with official church teaching and that they must set wholesome examples to the flock of Christ.

amazing how the homostapo has infiltrated the church and got idiots to think of them as Christians.
Now the homostapo wants to bring more turd pokers over in an immigration bill.
Evidently this is what passes for "standards" in these people's religion.
The grievous wolves got in and did not spare the flock. Subsequently, of their own number men arose, speaking some really perverse things, and drew away disciples after them.
If you have to ask someone in the clergy that question they shouldn’t be in the clergy.
They could get around the criticism of discrimination by quizzing all unmarried priests about their sex lives.
The Bible, after all, condemns all sexual activity outside marriage, not just the homo variety.
now they want in to the boy scouts and here is why they shoud not.
Sandusky, Catholic church but here is a local story
He;s a homosexual with another homosexual who both drive the school bus, who were caught hosting a party for young boys and now caught again trying to have sex with a boy in an under cover sting
THAT IS WHY THE HOMOSTAPO AND HOMOSEXUAL WANT IN , get access to boys and to force their perversion on the rest of us and then call people zealots if they oppose.
I;m past the point of being called a name, I could not careless anymore bring it on I say to them
1 Corinthians 5 shows that the sexual acts prohibited in Leviticus are to be resolved in NT times by expelling sexual offenders from the congregation (as opposed to putting them to death). So we're seeing gay "christian" clergy who evidently haven't read the Holy Bible.
I think that the "Do not be deceived" warning of 1 Cor. 6:9 is key to understanding major faith problems with same-sex sexual relationships.
Mankind was created with God-given sexual urges. Common sense regarding God’s creation demand that the natural order be honored.
This article is a perfect example of the twisted thinking that results when normalcy is ignored.
Same sex clergy is a perfect cover for perverts.
Not far in the future, the coprophiliacs, aka gays, will have full rights to your male children. Laugh now, but this is a gay agenda item.
Obama has just nominated Ken Hackett for Ambassador to the Vatican. He is the former CEO of Catholic Relief Services.
No word yet on whether he’s gay.
Perhaps you recall what they did For the RCC, then placed the blame on the church hierarchy.
Oh, the grand old Archbishop of York,
He had ten thousand vicars,
He marched them up to the top of
The hill and he marched
Them down again.
And when they were up they were up.
And when they were down they were down.
And when they were only half way up,
They were neither up nor down.
(with apologies to the formerly morally straight BSA.)
They’re probably being forced to ask by the government. Have to make sure the “gay” quota is upheld at all times, right?
“Hi, I’m a pedophile and I want to be a priest. Don’t be alarmed. I’m celibate. “
Archbishops To Gay Clergy: ‘Are You Having Gay Sex?’
‘Is it hot in here, or is it just you?’
‘Are you the dominant, the submissive, or go both ways?’
‘Where are some good places locally you can go to get lucky?’
‘Is it true what they say about black guys?’
‘Do you have any friends who are in to older guys?’
