Celebrating diversity

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 21, 2003

The Telegraph (U.K.) has this report on our (intermittently) separated brethren:

One of the Church of England's most prominent advocates of gay rights, who has called for the ordination of practising homosexuals and blessings of gay marriages, has been appointed a bishop. In a development which will dismay traditionalists, Canon Jeffrey John ... was yesterday named by Downing Street as the new Suffragan Bishop of Reading. His elevation will give fresh impetus to the Church's gay rights movement and reflects the new mood since Dr Rowan Williams, who has admitted ordaining a practising homosexual, became Archbishop of Canterbury. ... Dr John, 50, who has declined to comment on his own sexuality, has been an outspoken campaigner for gay rights for decades, and last year contributed to a collection of prayers for homosexuals. It included prayers for same-sex marriages, sex changes and "fantasy and fetish".

I give up.
