I’d like Episcopals to consider this question.

First consider the words of St. Paul, in his letter to Timothy:

“If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?” (1 Timothy 3:2-5)

In this light then, ponder an Episcopalian minister, who is married, with two children. This minister leaves said wife and kids, and is now living with another woman. Would such a person be then seriously considered for elevation to the office of Bishop?

So, along comes V. Gene Robinson. Married, two kids. Leaves them for another MAN. This, the Church leaders think is OK.
I said it in my long-form bit of last week:

….a whole new front is opened, with homosexuals attacking Chruch policy and teachings ostensibly from *within* the church and some church fathers agreeing with them. How, in the face of the teachings of the Church, can one take up such a pro-homosexual argument, and call one’s self a member of that body? This is nothing less than an attack from within the Church. The enemy within, after all, is always the most destructive. Apparently the only ones who understand this are the ones doing the attacking.

Again, I say louder….Those who tolerate everything, stand for nothing. So, the question now becomes: Do the teachings of the church stand for something, or do they not?
