Gay clergy are a gift from God

According to Gene Robinson:Add an Image

Gene Robinson, the Episcopalian bishop of New Hampshire, criticised the policy of the Church of England towards gay and lesbian clergy. Alluding to the significant number of clergy who are gay, he said: “I think gay clergy in the Church of England are thought of as a problem to be solved or at least lived with, rather than a gift from God.”

If gay clergy are a gift from God, it is a very strange gift, not unlike the Greeks’ gift to Troy. Once the gift is unwrapped and the clergy have come out, chaos will run amok leaving destruction – at least of the western Anglican church – in its path. Which leaves one wondering which god has given the gift.



  1. How could Jesus possibly be right? He died on a cross, after all!

  2. If Gene had his way we would all be gay, can’t say how the next generations would handle all this but it would certainly make the next few decades interesting
