Straight from the Bishop's Mouth

March 30 update: Aw, shucks! As Saint Pat observes in the comments below, "The fun police are at it again." YouTube pulled the video. So don't bother to click on the video link. It was a good 'un, though. First Brother Causticus's eBay auction ... now this. I'm pretty sure both sites are owned by the IRD. Coincidence??

Dr. Peter Jensen, Bishop of Sydney, is very, very clear that the Bible "does forbid us to bless homosexual unions or practising homosexuals from joining the ministry of the church." He has Leviticus on his side, after all. See what happens when a biblically astute journalist poses some further Leviticus-compliant questions to the Archbishop.

This is truly rich. Hat-tip to Episcopalooza for finding this one.

The fun police are at it again. You Tube pulled the video, saying something about the Aussie TV network threatening copyright infringement or some such.

Darn.

The Archbishop of Sydney is most decidedly NOT a Primate. The Anglican Primate of Australia is The Most Revd Phillip Aspinall, Archbishop of Brisbane.

Thanks for the correction, Brian. I've edited the post accordingly. I guess I got snookered-in by the overwhelming sense of his rectitude ... which mostly comes from the primates these days. {sigh}
