Should The Episcopal Church Now Embrace Threesomes?
Virtue Online ^ | 4-24-14 | David W. Virtue

Posted on 04/28/2014 5:55:50 AM PDT by ReformationFan

Here comes the bride. And another one. And another one! Meet world's first married lesbian THREESOME . . . and they're expecting a baby in July. Doll, Kitten and Brynn, all from Massachusetts, married last August. Kitten is expecting a daughter in July.

The world's only "married" lesbian threesome are expecting their first child. Kitten, 27, is pregnant after undergoing IVF treatment using an anonymous sperm donor. The trio eventually plans to have three children - one for each of them, according to news reports.

Apparently, there is a word for this: throuple.

When asked what the benefits are to having three people in a marriage, one of the ladies notes that chores are much easier when distributed among three people. Good point. She went on to say, “poly-fidelity is not something seedy…. it can be a perfectly acceptable choice of life and love.”

The obvious question for the Western Anglican Church is, since blessing same sex married couples is now de rigueur, what possible reason could our trendy bishops have for not blessing - for excluding - committed poly-monogamous threesomes? After all, Jesus said absolutely nothing about poly-fidelity.

The so-called "throuple" worked with a specialist family lawyer who drew up the paperwork and drafted the ceremony so that all three of them are obligated and bound to each other.

While Brynn and Kitten are legally married, Doll is handfasted to both so the threesome are as equally married to each other as legally possible.

One wonders if the Episcopal Church will develop a liturgy for threesomes. Heavens! Why stop at just gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered when there is now a whole new level of poly-fidelity as yet liturgically unexplored? Of course to do so, would confirm that TEC is the church for absolutely all people, loved by a God who clearly endorses threesomes which means all that is left is a Rite to go with it all.

There was no word from lesbian Episcopal Seminary Dean Katherine Ragsdale nor her partner, the Rev. Mally Lloyd, as to what they thought of this new sexual arrangement. Ms. Ragsdale is the president of Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass. a loyal Episcopal pansexualist.

Remember when the libs said stuff like this was "never going to happen"? Ideas do have consequences and I'm surprised that liberal theologians haven't been more vocal in supporting it.

The whole thing is ridiculous. Our government is stupid. Marriage is one man, one woman...and everything else is people doing anything they want to do.

I’m having a hard time discerning whether it’s

arrogance,
ignorance,
or
deceit

that makes a liberal think or tell us they can re-define something and have redefinition stop there.

I have no problem with people contracting a relationship as long as the contract is in accordance with applicable laws of the relevant jurisdiction. That means of course a clear procedure for breaking the contract, that is divorce in most cases although I suppose annulment and separation might also apply.
As for the holy sacrament of marriage, churches differ on rules about this. Since I am free to pick my church, I can associate where and with whom I share common belief.
The question of what government finds worthy of a contract is for the people through their representatives to decide as modified by a judiciary which has forgotten it's constitutional role, but that's another story. The question of whether a relationship meets the threshold of marriage is for the clergy and perhaps God, if he has a preference, to decide.

At least these weirdos didn’t wait for the state’s permission. To my understanding the Episcopalians won’t marry anyone unless the state they are in pats them on the head and says it’s OK, even if they actually believe ‘gay marriage’ or whatever other impossibility is the current trendy marriage combo is theologically possible.

The threesome a church should embrace is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

If a church's focus starts there and stays there, it should do well.

If not, it's not the sort of church where you would find what you need.

The big goal for evil will be the celebration of incest.

The destruction of the family will be complete.

How is it that human interaction has devolved to the stimulation of genitals and lust in our civilization as its highest concern?

When you step back to the BIG picture, that’s what it’s all about -

Christ vs those who oppose Him.

There is no other real conflict.

these rubettes are simply displaying their PRIDE in the most confrontational manner possible.

As PRIDE seems to be at the core of the homosexual “movement” what could be more “natural” for them.

Dogs bark...psychologically impaired deviants act out...

they want ATTENTION...and we have given it to them.

IIRC it was Selwyn Duke who observed that they weren’t
“redefining” but “undefining”.

And in computer land, one cannot predict what “undefined”
behavior will be, or how damaging.

There was ample warning about this though; see Jennifer
Roback Morse’s “The Case of the Incurious Economists”

I agree that what they’ve done is “undefining”,
but I was using their terminology to point out the illogic of saying it could stop there.

Have a man marry them all and call it good. It’ll make the Muzzies in the UK happy.

“I’m thinking the tall one is a man.......”

I’ve wondered the same thing.
Plus the article states: “The trio eventually plans to have three children - one for each of them, “

Let’s just see if the tall one gets pregnant.

Given the way the Episcopal Church has acted/performed for the past two or three decades, the headline is absolutely appropriate. Gay Bishop Robinson and Gay Seminary Dean Ragsdale should be speaking out now on various and sundry forms of “love” and “marriage,” including “throuples.”

For all intents and purposes, the liberal Episcopal church (as well as the CofE) is not only no longer Anglican, it barely passes muster as Christian, but only because they have not yet voted on whether God exists, which in their “wisdom” they would probably find against.

Seriously, from the moment the Archbishop of Canterbury became a Druid High Priest, he ceased being Christian.

Likewise, with the appointment of the practicing sodomite Gene Robinson as a bishop, the Episcopal Church, USA, left the realm of Judeo-Christianity and became just another snake cult, like the other trendy schismatic faiths in the US.

Why don’t they go all in and embrace the DEVIL?

After all if the scriptures treat the HOMO’s unfairly, stands to reason of humanist thinking the devil is treated unfairly to.
