The COFE announces that you can be gay and a bishop.

Posted: January 4, 2013 in LGBT Issues

Sounds good doesn’t it?

Sounds like a step forward.

Well, I’m afraid it’s not. It’s conditional on your repenting of your past homosexuality and being celibate, being alone. I suspect they will put up CCTV in your bedroom to check it out.

Frankly, it’s like saying

GAY=BE ALONE and then you can be a bishop. Frankly I don’t think the price is worth it. Loneliness is a killer, I know, I feel it. Straight people asking gay people to be alone to keep their odd 6 verses misinterpreted out of context happy is not only unchristian, but just proves that some Christians do not understand or want to understand Contextual Theology (my own term), this is where you never take a verse away from the context which it is written, wether cultural or part of something else. For instance, Leviticus where it says a man shall not lie with a man as with a women, is in the context of the worship of Molech (check the verses before).

Frankly, yet again the love of Christ presented by the Church of England to people like me is not unconditional, the cross, is not good enough to cover our faults and sins (things that distance us from God), unless you are straight, if you are gay, God can only accept you if you behave in a certain way, according to the Anglican Church. Jesus, I’m sorry buddy but on the cross when you said “It is finished”, what you meant, according to the Anglicans is “It is finished unless your Gay and then we want to condemn you and make you feel unworthy unless you wear our cassocks and play our silly games”.

I don’t want a marriage that is based on some cock a hoot idea that it will fix the world, because it doesn’t, I don’t want to be a bishop, frankly, if it wasn’t for the love of my church that I go to I would not want to be in church. I certainly wouldn’t be seen dead in a cathedral, they are simply not places for LGBT people.

Jesus never once asked someone to be celibate. Not once. He majored on love and acceptance not conditional rejection.

In reality, they are doing absolutely NOTHING new, single males are already allowed to be bishops, they are just making sure they are the right “kind” of single.
