New Archbishop of Canterbury Makes Compelling Case For Gay Marriage (Caution: Satire)

ENGLAND–The Most Reverend Justin Welby was formally enthroned earlier today as the Anglican Church’s 105th Archbishop of Canterbury. The ceremony took place in the 900-year-old Canterbury Cathedral in southern England, where Welby told those in attendance that he hoped to usher the Anglican community toward a more “Christ-liberated courage” in regards to acceptance of all lifestyles. Dressed in a cope, stole, and ornate, golden mitre, Welby symbolically struck the cathedral’s west door three times with his staff to formally request admittance into the cathedral. During the enthronement address, the archbishop challenged opponents of gay marriage to find exactly where in the Bible it said, “a man can’t marry another man.” “I say to you today, that it cannot be found,” the archbishop went on after a few minutes of silence. “But rather, let us look to 1 Corinthians 1:10, word 9, ‘Homosexuals’…then to Colossians 2:23, word 3, ’May’…then to 1 Corinthians 7:28, word 5, ’Marry’…and finally to Jeremiah 23:35, words 8 and 9, ‘One another.’”

Ah, now it’s clear that the is a Biblical basis for supporting queers marrying one another. ;-)
