WOW! that lasted a long time. Probably not enough sexual perversion variety in his f’d up, sorry life.

Doesn’t anyone stay married anymore? /sarc.

To “marry” another? On what basis?

The disgusting pervert, Vicky Gene Robinson, is celebrated by leftists because he advances their agenda. The pervert was married with young children when he met another pervert, and his daughters were 7 y/o and 11 y/o when he left his wife and children so he could satisfy his carnal desires without family responsibility inconveniencing him. If he had done this for another woman, the far left would have condemned him as enthusiastically as decent people do, but since it was for perverted purposes, the left celebrates Vicky Gene Robinson’s decision to abandon his wife and leave his young children with only one parent.

Gene, Gene, Gene, the drama queen. Making the announcement in an e-mail and in an article to The Daily Beast (how apt).

Wonder if he closed with, “position now available, interested parties welcome”.

My first thought was “How do they determine which one was the ‘husband’ in a homo relationship?” My second thought was ‘Nevermind, I don’t wanna know.’

The first openly gay bishop in the Anglican church has announced he is divorcing his husband.

So he's the wife? This is so confusing.

About the same time Bishop Robinson was leaving his family, our local parish priest was removed from his job for having an affair with a married woman, while he, himself, was married. He eventually had his Orders revoked, because he refused to break it off. A punishment handed down only twice in the history of the ECUSA.

Not to say he didn’t deserve it. He did defy his bishop and the national church. But his pattern of behavior was exactly the same as Bishop Robinson’s, save the one small fact that he took up with a married woman, while Bishop Robinson took up with a married man.

So while my parish priest gets drummed out of church, they make Robinson a Bishop.

Interesting. I didn’t know he had a wife and children. So let’s see: he’s an adulterer, sodomite, and a twice divorcer who abandoned his family.

If he didn’t bother reading the Scripture that talks about how a man will leave his parents and become one with his WIFE and that homosexuality is a sin, I guess he didn’t notice Malachi 2:16: “I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “because the man who divorces his wife covers his garment with violence.”

The more his garment is covered with violence, the more the left adores him.

Perverted thought: This could spawn a whole new trend - if you want to have an affair with a member of the opposite sex, get a "beard" of the same sex for cover.

It’s more likely that Gene’s “partner” passed his expiration date, and he’s ready to go shopping for some fresher meat. Even though Gene looks old and decrepit, there are still young twinkies in search of a sugar daddy.

having an affair with a married woman

None of us are without sin. The question is whether we will wallow in sin and celebrate the rejection of God's word or resist when we have the strength and repent when we fail. When a bishop is the one publicly wallowing in physical pleasure over God's word, and those actions are praised, that worries me.

In nearly all gay marriages, both partners cheat. Unrestricted sex with other mean is an inherent facet of the gay lifestyle that “marriage” will not change on iota.

Was there a “wife” in this arrangement, or were they both “husbands?” It’s hard to keep up with the definition extensions.

well, I share your disgust at the lawyers that fan the flames. There are however, those of us in the practice that advise these cheaters what their neighbors, pastors, parents and colleagues are too weak to say: You need to understand, your children do NOT care about your “happiness”, they will be mortified and embarrassed by your ridiculous conduct, and you will rupture the relationship with them forever even if they play along. What kids want and deserve is an intact family that bands together against an uncaring and cold world and provides them a safe haven in which to grow up and develop.

It strikes me, that, the whole gay agenda is to make available a larger segment of the population. The current crop of fags, just, isn't cutting it.

You’re right. For example, the story of David Tuterra, that wedding planner guy on tv. He “married” his partner then the partner decided he wanted a divorce. Seems he was sick of Tuterra’s constant need to bring a third man in to their bedroom. A pervert sick of perversion, if you will. Problem is, they had a surrogate pregnant with twins. The perverts got their divorce, surrogate had twins, they split them up and now each degenerate scumbag each got a baby to play with. We are so lost as a civilized society to let something like this happen. Also, notice how this story got buried by the media?

“None of us are without sin.”

This isn’t the point. The point of homosexual unions, in general and specific, is the attempt at redefining what is sin. It’s not a sin if you love each other is the trope that the homo/pedi crowd has devised, and everyone has bought into.
