continuing Roman Catholic— Anglican dialogue

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Nov 07, 2005

In his latest contribution to constructive ecumenical dialogue, Anglican Bishop Gene Robinson told a crowd of gay activists in London that the teaching of the Catholic Church is "vile."

Robinson, the openly gay New Hampshire bishop, is in London making his Anglican colleagues uncomfortable. But he didn't make London's militant homosexuals uncomfortable; he told them that a bid to eliminate homosexuals from Catholic seminaries is "an act of violence."

Oh, but it wasn't all negative. Robinson said that “Pope Ratzinger may be the best thing that ever happened to the Episcopal Church.”

That's funny, because Uncle Di sees how Bishop Robinson just could be the best thing that's happened to the Roman Catholic Church recently. If he'll just keep talking, and Bishop Akinola just keeps thinking about which side of the Tiber looks more like home...

"An act of violence"
