Episcopal Church’s Robinson, deposed Ugandan bishop call for sexuality without boundaries

Catholic World News - June 11, 2010

Joined by Bishop Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire, Christopher Senyonjo, a deposed Ugandan Anglican bishop, called upon Christians to repent of their opposition to homosexuality. “Human sexuality has no boundaries,” said Senyonjo during a June 8 press conference in Washington. “My litmus test is love.”

“Where I hope we are headed is to discover the enormous diversity in human sexuality,” added Robinson, who fathered two daughters before divorcing his wife and announcing his homosexuality. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there were as many sexualities as there are human beings?”

    Indeed, this SHOULD cause a stampede--one hopes, anyway. Chalk Robinson's statement up to the 'everything old is new again' category, under the title "Gimme that ol' time Perversion". Care to guess what 'the bish' would list among those many sexualities? Robinson isn't slouching toward Gomorrah, he's sprinting. Will the Episcopalians turn their backs on his ways before they become pillars of salt?

    "Human sexuality knows no boundaries"- isn't that precisely the problem? It NEEDS boundaries - like everything else. St Paul clearly believed that human sexuality needs boundaries - boundaries essential for living a good Christian life. Thanks be to God the Catholic Church continues to uphold the Apostolic teaching, to love the sinner and hate the sin, to hold fast to the law of God entrusted to it rather than pandering to the ebb and flow of secular morality.

    Go Robinson!!!!!The more you talk the more Episcopalians come home to the Church of Rome.
