There are times when The Pink Flamingo is rather pleased to be an Episcopalian, even with all of our problems.
According to the Archbishop of York, John Setamu, we women are not good enough to be either priests or bishops, even though Christ was not exactly discriminatory when it came to calling women. Fact is, the very first Christian – the first person to see the Risen Christ was a woman!
The real problem is the hard-liners within the Anglican Communion who are from African countries who are dominated by women hating Muslims.
Yea – you got it.
The forces of Islam are pushing the Anglican Communion to pander to the hardliners who hate women. It’s that simple.
Now, quit complaining about we Episcopalians who may have our little problems when it comes to a gay or lesbian bishop. We are all sinners and Christ loves Gene Robinson as much as He does John Setamu.
How much longer is the modern, civilized world going to put up with the positively barbaric demands of the under-developed world ruled by Islam?
This is crap.
It is far from Christian.
Perhaps it would help the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of York to remember that the titular head of the church is a W-O-M-A-N.
