‘An earnest hope, desire or entreaty’

By ATWadmin On December 10th, 2006

rowan williams.jpegThe solidity of the world-wide Anglican Communion is in doubt, so we are told! With leaders like that, who can profess to be surprised! But the possibility of a schism grows ever nearer with communities such as these two, planning a vote on whether to leave the American bunch, and set up house with the Nigerians. Now the whole hoo-haahh was started by this guy here being consecrated as a bishop, despite being an open homosexual. Many Americans still regard homosexual acts as a sin, and in complete defiance to the will of their Creator, so they get kind of teee’d off when some guy who is living with another guy gets placed in a position of considerable moral authority in their Church. So they decide to have a vote on whether they should move out of the fold, as it were, and cuddle up alongside the Nigerian Archbishop who wants openly-homosexual people to end up in jail. This is perhaps one step back from the Nigerian Muslims, who demand the death penalty for homosexuals; and while many think that’s perhaps a little harsh, they also think that Archbishop Peter J. Akinola takes this stance in order to keep being friendly with the Muslims!

In Great Britain, we adopt a slightly lower level of care towards the shepherds of our various flocks, ‘care’ as in ‘who gives a damn?’, rather than ‘who will care for the sinner?’, which is what it seems to have been about in the first place. There are, however, ominous signs and portents that the homosexual cause is gaining ground, with the first record of a Civil Partnership in The Archers. However, just in case you worry about such tidings, check out this, as a possible antidote!

Aren’t you glad that you live in a society where we have true religious freedom, with this guy soon to be in the top slot on one side along with his wife, who is a definite advert for the wearing of the muslim veil, and that guy in the top slot on one of the others!

  1. Interesting in the Sunday Times Today:

    <Q>Homosexuality is described as the sin of sodomy that led God to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah after the inhabitants of Sodom threatened to rape three male angels sent to assess the situation. But biblical evidence that homosexuality was the sin of Sodom is weak. In Ezekiel 16, God said: “This was the sin of your sister Sodom. She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me.” </Q>

    and :

    <Q>Elsewhere in the Bible, loving relationships between men are described with approval. The most notable example is the doomed passion of David and Jonathan, a love that David said “surpasses the love of women” and which King Saul, Jonathan’s father, attempted to break up with tragic results. </Q>

  2. “This was the sin of your sister Sodom. She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me.”

    Seems we are doomed on all fronts, – a surfeit of female ‘celebs’,and their ‘lookalikes’, and an abundance of homosexuals…

    Meanwhile, as David was saying to Jonathon!…..

  3. Here’s an idea people. Why not abandon mindlessly following a religion and just think for yourself? If you decide in your own head that gayness is wrong then so be it. Just don’t bed someone with the same type of dangly bits. Result!

    These Nigerian religious types sound like maniacs. Perhaps they should be in jail or executed?

    Thinking for yourslef and adhering to a rleigon are not mutually exclusive.

    I get your point about the nigerians.

  5. Aileen,

    "Thinking for yourslef and adhering to a rleigon are not mutually exclusive."

    Well, true, but then many people who adhere to a religion really should NOT think for themselves and should instead seek outside assistance! 😉

  6. Frank is a theist in denial ;o)

  7. <Q>whether to leave the American bunch, and set up house with the Nigerians. </Q>

    I wonder did they get one of those e mails telling them their church could help the Nigerian Church by providing a bank account etc etc ?

  8. Go get him!

    Would that be the first ATW conversion/homecoming ?

  9. No Aileen: You are forgetting the mass conversion of the unionsists on this site to Catholicism when Pope Benedict denounced certain aspects of Islam.
