LONDON (AFP) - Gene Robinson, the world's first openly gay bishop, said that Pope Benedict XVI's attitude toward homosexuals might be boosting membership of the Anglican Church in the United States.A telling statement from one who has rejected God and the natural law...
"We are seeing so many Roman Catholics joining the (Anglican) church," said Robinson on a visit to London. "Pope (Joseph) Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) may be the best thing that ever happened to the (US) Episcopal Church."
"I cannot imagine how discouraging it would be to have a church hierarchy doing what it does.One cannot help but wonder how "vile" God considers homosexuality? One would think that the 'man' would know the facts before he opens his mouth...but then, facts lead to truth, which he apparently rejects...preferring instead, the lies of the evil one. Despite how openly defiant others are toward God and His revelation, we must remember to pray for them - especially if we find it difficult to do so. If reason does not work with people such as this - and it rarely seems to do so - we must recall that with God, nothing is impossible.
"I find it so vile that they think they are going to end the child abuse scandal by throwing out homosexuals from seminaries. It is an act of violence that needs to be confronted."
