Bashing The Bishop

‘WE are used to arguments along the lines of “My god is bigger than your god”, but now we have to listen to arguments such as “My god dresses better than your god”.

‘Have you got anything in pink?’

Yesterday, Gene Robinson became the first openly gay bishop in the history of modern Christianity when he was consecrated by the US Episcopal Church in front of 5,000 worshippers and 54 bishops on a New Hampshire ice rink.

But the decision has angered many in the Church and, says the Guardian, threatened a split in the worldwide Anglican congregation.

Some episcopal parishes have already arranged to join other churches, while others are withholding diocesan money.

And the ceremony itself drew a small group of protestors who gathered outside “bearing banners of graphic and virulent hatred of homosexuals”.

There were even protests inside with one priest, Rev Earl Fox, being cut short by Bishop Frank Griswold when he started describing the sexual practices of homosexuals.

He had just finished rimming and was embarking on a long explanation of felching when Bishop Griswold stepped in.’
