English Schismatics Pick Up the Tune

Now they're getting in line with the Global South and the crazy American schismatics.  A group of English Anglicans now have their panties in a wad over gay clergy and homosexuality. Imagine that. LOL.

A site called CrossMap reports that a gaggle of Anglicans in England are threatening a coup over the issue of gay marriage and homosexuality.  They are aligned with the silly fringe sects in Africa and the U.S.  Oooo ...!  My bones are just shaking at their power.  Not.

A gigantic tidal wave of twelve (yes, just 12) parishes in England are  incensed and threaten they will bring  the Anglican Communion to its knees.  Hmmm ...  Where have we heard that before in the past 13 years?

And what's the great travesty?  They are livid that "senior leaders are watering down the teaching of the Church of England on key issues like homosexuality."  

Give me a minute.  I need to read the Gospels, Epistles, and Hebrew Scriptures again. 

OK.  I've done that.  Nowhere do I read that homosexuality is a key teaching in the Bible.  I read about justice, hospitality, generosity, compassion, and love of Jesus as "key issues" in the Christian Bible.  I missed the part where God or Jesus made homosexuality a "key issue."  Which Bible are they reading?

Yes. You are right. It's not a key teaching, barely a teching at all.

Almost a dozen according to news reports- not really 12 at all.

Yes, your comments echo mine. They are a dying remnant. The only thing they have on their side is press releases. They don't have the numbers. And they certainly don't have the theology.
