Apparently, it makes some of them hysterical.
Having lost on virtually every theological and ecclesial front in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion for the past seven years, it seems the flappy jaws at ViagraVille were almost out of grist for their hysteria-mill. But wait! Not quite! In the desperate search for something about which they could again become hysterical in their effort to whip up the faithful, today they discovered my April 12 post about Bishop Christopher Ssenyonjo’s visit to the U.S.
Is that all they have left in their arsenal? A 6-week-old post of mine? LOL! Dear friends, it is clear we have won, if the StandFlabby crowd is digging six weeks back for something to fight about.
Six weeks after the fact, they have decided that I should not have called Ugandan Christopher Ssenyonjo a bishop. And why? Because the homophobic, schismatic Archbishop of Uganda “defrocked” Bishop Ssenyonjo a while back.
Of course, you don’t need to think very hard or dig very deep to remember that these same Viagrans insist on calling Duncan, Schofield, and Iker bishops … even though those clerics have been rightfully deposed.
Duncan, Iker, and Schofield were deposed because they are thieves.
Ugandan bishop Ssenyonjo was deposed because he didn’t hate queers enough to suit the Archbishop of Uganda.
I’ll let you decide which is the worse offense.
For the Viagrans, apparently, deposition only counts if it’s done by a homophobic African archbishop, and deposition doesn’t “take” if it’s done within The Episcopal Church.
It’s rather amusing to watch the Viagrans try to create a reality of their own making.
Unlike those folks who are dreaming up an alternate reality at ViagraVille, I continue to recognize the schismatic ex-Episcopalians [Duncan, Schofield, and Iker] as bishops … while I also recognize they are scoundrels and thieves. Apparently, StandFlabby isn’t bothered by any such need for consistency. To them, the thieving Episcopal bishops are still bishops, but the “deposed” Ugandan bishop is less than a cleric, and perhaps (from the tone of their remarks) even less than a man.
I seldom read the ViagraVille site, but a friend alerted me to their latest effort to create a tempest in a teapot. And now I see that Father Jake has offered his reflections. As usual, he is more temperate and more wise than I.
Of course, when did we ever expect sense or consistency of the Viagrans? Never in my memory.
Dear friends, when I am so desperate that I need to find a six-week old post from our worthy opponents in order to whoop up a fight, kindly shoot me and put me out of my misery, OK?
The StandFirm crowd has lost. Surely they know in their hearts they have lost. And all they have left is a desperate need to spawn hatred among their sycophants.
