The Tortured, Homophobic Logic of His Grace, The Bishop of Durham
Scott Gunn, a priest from Rhode Island, tears apart the crap logic and homophobia of yesterday's editorial in The Times (and WaPo) by Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham, against a resolution passed at General Convention affirming that the LGBT baptized can have their calls to ordained ministry recognised. MadPriest, the vicar in Newcastle, reacts to Bp. Wright, too. Scott Gunn's blog post should be spread widely and printed in The Times and the Washington Post.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
