I find this very distressing! Why is the church trying to integrate itself into the world?! The church is meant to be God's voice here on earth! How an earth can any minister work for a 'Christian' Organisation who openly support anything that is not entirely Holy!
I am deeply saddened when I read about this in the local news. The church never gets any good press anymore! What happened to caring for the poor and looking after the needy people in our communities. That is what God calls us to do. "Love Thy Neighbour". However before this, "Love Thy God, as the one and Only". How can we claim to love Him if we are actively living in sin?
To promote openly homosexual clergy to bishops (even if they are celibate) is totally wrong as it send out the wrong message, particularly to youngsters, that being a homosexual is OK. It is not OK.
If the Church of England chooses to put the law of the land above the law of the Word of God then it has lost its way and can not be relied upon for good spiritual leadership.
What happened to Bible standards. When the blind lead the blind both will fall into the pit. They are disgusting in the way they lead people.
