As New Hampshires’ Bishop Gene Robinson puts it, he always wanted to be a June Bride. And so it is that in but a few weeks time he will enter into a  civil ceremony with his "husband" Mark. From where I stand, Robinson is a man who obsesses over his sexuality and has precious little to say about the Christian faith. He is a divisive figure but one that is fawned over by the liberal media who love the idea of such a senior gay cleric.  Last evening he was given a very sympathetic hearing by the pro-Gay BBC, for example. Now it seems to me that his actions may well lead to a massive split in the Anglican communion which would be a very good thing as the godly residue within it moves away from the modern feel-good liberal section. God works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform! I do not condemn Robinson for his sexuality since that is his choice, but I do condemn him for the way in which he fails to uphold Biblical truths which are diametrically opposed to the lifestyle he chooses.

    No, it isn’t. Like most of us, the good bishop has little choice in his sexuality.

    Well, you hardly expect him to try to stone himself to death, now do you?

  2. Does the Bible require that gays be stoned? I know that gays are to be killed in islamic law – the paedophile ‘prophet’ said so.

    Actually it does. But of course such a suggestion is much more shocking if in the Koran!

  4. David,

    "Robinson is a man who obsesses over his sexuality"

    Not so. It’s others who do that. Fundie bloggers for instance :0)

    The Christian position on stoning was established by Christ himself.

    He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone

    That was the beginning and the end of the debate.

    Then Jesus lifting up himself, said to her: Woman, where are they that accused thee? Hath no man condemned thee?

    Who said: No man, Lord. And Jesus said: Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more.

    The message is the same for all of us. Do not condemn the sinner but turn from sin yourself. Most of us find it easy enough to manage one or the other.
