Anglican Church May Split Over Gay Bishop

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: The Black Kettle)

(Grand Folks Herald) "This is at least as much about power and control as it is about theology and Scripture," New Hampshire Bishop V. Gene Robinson told The Associated Press in an interview. "It's about who's going to be calling the shots, and who's going to be in and who's going to be out."

At stake is how 77 million Anglicans around the world, including 2.3 million members of America's Episcopal Church, define their religion and their relationship to one another. Robinson said he underestimated the opportunity his election gave conservatives to organize within the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion of which it is a part.

What the gay Bishop fails to realize is the denomination's reputation which is at stake. By accepting a life style that contradicts the church's holy text, the whole denomination is threatened to being labeled as apostate in nature. If homosexuals want to be homosexuals, then that is their own business, but if they desire to be counted as Christ's disciples then they should at least adhere to the principles laid down by Him. If a person objects to certain criteria, they are more than welcome in joining the local cult next door, after all, disciples of Christ are not defined by what they say but by what they do.

(Grand Folks Herald) One participant was Pittsburgh Bishop Robert Duncan, leader of the Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and Parishes that rallies the conservative minority of Episcopalians.

"This is not a power play," Duncan said in a telephone interview Thursday, "except in the sense that Bishop Robinson's position in the church is a total innovation in the life of the church and what we face are two positions that can't be put together."

It seems that there is some reasoning within the Anglican denomination, as many seem to realize that the oxymoron "Gay Christian" does not sit very well with the biblical faith, much less than "praying atheist" does to the non-religious Darwinist. According to the article it appears as if the Nigerian church is severing ties with their western friends.

If the Anglican church insists upon condoning this lifestyle then the other major denominations should simply blacklist the entire as apostate and place along side of the other cults that have sprung up since Christ walked the earth. If one can not affirm the basic tenets of their faith (whatever it might be) then they are wasting their time convincing the public of their loyalty and might as well take their place amongst the foolish. After all, if you can not ascribe to your faith's main beliefs, why join it in the first place?
