Anglican Bishop Calls for 'Gay Christianity'
Catholic Online ^ | 5/20/08 | Hilary White

Posted on 05/20/2008 5:14:16 AM PDT by tcg

The Anglican Church is the perfect vehicle for creating a new “gay” Christianity by virtue of the fact that it is the only church that accepts the logical contradiction of asserting both the sanctity of human life and the existence of a right to abortion.

Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson, whose ordination to the episcopate has precipitated the ongoing schism between traditionally Christian Anglicans and its ultra-liberal, secularized branches, is in London to talk about his vision for the homosexual future of the Anglican Church.

He was visiting and promoting his cause in preparation for the upcoming Lambeth Conference in July.

No such thing as “homosexual Christianity.” Joyful Christians...maybe...”gay” ones...never.

Haven’t we already seen the results of homosexuals invading the priesthood to destroy the Catholic Church? Do we really want another round of boy raping by homos masquerading as priests?

The “homosexual future of the Church” doesn’t and can not exist. The Anglican / Episcopal Church in the West will disappear in the next decades.

Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson is probably gay himself. Either that our he doesn’t know the bible at all. Or even worse knows it but is defying God anyway.

The traditional family is the basis of our culture.

Those seeking to destroy our culture and replace it know they must destroy the traditional family first.

Use this lens whenever examining issues such as this.

Yes, and in a new language, of his own invention: gobbledygook.

Let's say he's right that the ‘sanctity of human life” and “a woman's right to choose”, are both moral principles. There might be some dispute about the second. But so what? When two principles come in conflict, and they contradict each other, then one will prevail. there is no compromise between two contradictory principles.

In other words, not all “principles” carry equal moral weight. In his case, he wants the woman's “right to choose” to carry more weight. He is not looking for compromise. My position is that a woman's right to choose has been exercised when she chooses to engage in unprotected sex that results in her pregnancy.

There simply is no compromise available. Whenever you hear a liberal talk of 'nuance', you know they still hold their misguided opinions and are just trying to fool you.

Where have you been? His ordination is what brought this entire mess to an ugly head. He's openly gay and flaunts it every chance he gets.

Wow. Where’ve you been.

Yes, Bishop Vicki Eugenia Robinson is a gay man. According to my wife who met him back in her Anglican days, flamingly so, like every day is Friday Night on Fire Island. He is also a drug addict and an alcoholic, who divorced his wife and abandoned his kids. And they appointed him bishop anyway. The national church affirmed his ordination, asking, “what can we do? We can’t reject a bishop!”... and then went about sacking the bishops who complained. Then the national church appointed as its leader the most in-your-face heretic you can imagine, a pagan priestess who prays to the “womb of Christ,” who had been Anglican only a few brief years before being appointed bishop of Las Vegas.

Perhaps this is Vickie Eugene Robinson's gay version of the Anglican via media. An ancient doctrine with a new twist?

also, the headline “Anglican Bishop” probably causes many in the Anglican Communion to feel nauseated as most have neither approved of or accepted Robinson as an Anglican Bishop - only the Americans.

It’s unfortunate and somewhat misleading that the author chooses to empahsize the term “Anglican” vs. “Episcopalian” in referring to Robinson. Vicky Gene (along with his “prophetic” theology) is persona non grata with the vast majority of the Anglican Communion. I can only assume that the author had an agenda which was reflected in the author’s choice of terms.

Yes, lots of them. Were you Episcopalian in a liberal church when you attended? Did you realize where the church left orthodox Christianity? Were you aware of orthodox Anglican churches? Did you seek one out (or another orthodox denomination) and attend one for a while to counter the heresies that you were hearing from the pulpit? Etc.

He's going to have a lot to answer for. I am a sinner, as are we all. And we all have to answer for that. But this man is saying that "sin is not sin", and that's a real no-no.

You don't call good evil and evil good, according to Isaiah. And Bishop Robinson is definitely calling evil good.

Oh, well then that makes it OK.

Which part of the Bible endorses sin?

I was in the same boat, but then I found a great Bible-believing Presbyterian church. Unfortunately, it’s part of the PCUSA, which is also rapidly going down the tubes. We’re growing, but the presbytery is crumbling around us.

Actually, I believe the Episcoplal Church’s math is less people = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Gays tend to be wealthy, die young, and lack heirs. And there’s that heritage of real estate, annuities, and wills. But the more people in the church, the more they want to have the money spent in support of spreading the gospel and ministries.

Don’t get me wrong: the Church Establishment profits off of more people in the pew, but this comes at a sizable loss of control over how to spend (and save) the money.

It’s not even so much the unrepentant that bug me. I really wouldn’t mind hypocrites as much as I mind those who boldly proselytize wickedness.

Any other parts of the Bible this “Bishop” wishes to ignore?

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
