What? A character flaw?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 04, 2003

Associated Press Monday, August 4, 2003 MINNEAPOLIS - Episcopalian leaders delayed a vote Monday on whether to confirm the church's first openly gay elected bishop after allegations involving "touching" and "pornography" emerged against the clergyman, a church spokesman said.

Could it be? If they chase down this lead aggressively, the American mass media might discover that some homosexuals are not prudent, chaste, and otherwise altogether admirable.

In much the same way, if you relied exclusively on "B" movies for your knowledge of world affairs, you might be unacquainted with the category of whores who don't have hearts of gold.

The difference is that "B" movies are understood to be fiction, whereas the news media... Oh, never mind.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Don't sell the Episcopalians short! Having surmounted the mountain-sized obstacles in Scripture to ordain women, accept homosexuality and even bless homosexual "unions," touching and pornography are but the smallest pebbles--hardly worth mention. However, should this involve pedophilia of some sort, I think it may take even the Episcopalians five or six years to first accept, then lovingly embrace with the acceptance and tolerance Jesus somewhere--but never in Scripture or Tradition--commanded.
