The noghty vicar who won our appreciation.

Well this is a follow up to my criticism of Marcus Bradshaw for calling the Archbishop a…well let’s not go there.

I did not realise that this guy is an advocate for LGBT people and actually he bravely got angry with the religious leadership of his day. (Oh hang on, Jesus did that). If you check his Facebook profile you will see message after message of SUPPORT from LGBT people and I added mine. Although perhaps calling the Archbishop a, w****r might be a bad way of expressing it it had a wonderful effect. It made people sit up and listen.

Jesus, turned over the tables in the temple and caused equal uproar, he was ALWAYS winding up the religious leadership and getting in trouble for it.

However, Jesus, he attracted to him the poor and needy, the rejected and down trodden.

Being like Christ is not about obeying rules and making people feel rejected and down trodden. In fact, it’s about standing in the gap for those who cannot stand for themselves. I know for myself I have felt so terrible about the way the archbishop and others put down us LGBT people. Without good reason, crushing our spirits, the Bible does say about Jesus, a bruised reed he will not break. How much reed breaking has been done by the religious right.

Sometimes Jesus got angry, it’s called righteous anger. I doubt he swore but he was quite straight forward about those who “shut the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces”.

What is more like Jesus, to stand for the oppressed? or to be the oppressor.
