More vomit spewed out of the mouth of the gay christian movement’s hero.
The Episcopal Church’s first homosexual bishop believes its time for everyone to begin accepting different sexual expressions beside just the regular run of the mill “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender” ones we’ve become accustomed to. The statement made by Vickie Gene Robinson is outrageous in its concept, but thus far his church has been silent. No surprises there but at least the slippery slope they claim does not exist, now has a face.
Robinson made his remarks as he is preparing to enter a more politically charged arena
The Center for American Progress (CAP) said in an announcement that Robinson will focus on issues related to economic justice, immigration, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) rights, health care, and the environment, among others.
“I think Gene’s qualifications for this role probably approximate his qualifications for the role of prophet, which he has assumed in the Episcopal Church,” said William Murchison, a member of the denomination and author of Mortal Follies: Episcopalians and the Crisis of Mainline Christianity.
“Everything Gene does tends to be conditioned upon his absolute faith that he knows what he is talking about,” Murchison said. “He’s a man of some charm, but if you get beyond these somewhat basic and superficial credentials, I don’t believe there’s a whole lot of ‘there’ there.”
Robinson most recently drew attention from comments made last week at the Spring meeting of the Episcopal Church House of Bishops. Expressing dissatisfaction with two policy papers presented for and against same-sex marriage, Robinson said it was time to move beyond speaking of “GLBT” orientations.
“There are so many other letters in the alphabet,” Robinson said. “There are so many other sexualities to be explored.”
The Bishop did not elaborate as to what other sexualities might be, and to their corresponding letters of the alphabet.
Robinson knows full well what he means by “other sexualities”. A few of them immediately come to mind: pedophilia, beastiality and the deadly sexual practice called erotic asphyxiation, a component of the S&M world. And those are some of the more tamer practices Bishop Robinson is encouraging people to “explore” and experience.
