beleaguered

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 02, 2008

Anglican Bishop Gene "Don't Change the Subject" Robinson, while launching his autobiography, puts aside his customary reticence and submits to an interview:

"I've met, what, probably 300 gay, partnered clergy here in the Church of England, and I could tell you stories that would make you weep about what life is like for them, and the fear with which they live."

Fear of a book contract?

    Fear of hell fire? I wish! The clergy I know don't fear persecution, suffering, ridicule or trials -because they are conformed to Christ. They also don't fear exposure, because they have nothing to hide.

    First it was Henry VIII wanting a divorce. Then it was the Lambeth Conference of 1930 allowing contraception (and quietly abortion). Now it is same sex marriage. Why not? It doesn't matter. All Reformation "religions" are man-made.

    The faithful don't need Gene's stories to make them weep; the Chuch of Don't Ask/Don't Tell is tragic enough.

    Well, I'm sure he _could_ tell me stories that would make me weep!

    Fear that there might really be a "final judgement?"
