Mirror, Mirror

Thanks, AnglicanInk, for the infographic

Just when you thought that the venerable Church of England had slid off the abyss and into the icy void of deep space, up comes this. The shrinking denomination's College of Bishops have formed a "reflection group on sexuality." What will they see in the mirror?

Giles Fraser and Aleister Crowley

Perhaps they'll see the famous Aleister Crowley lookalike, Rev. Cursitor Doom, popularly known as "Giles Fraser."

Nice Looking Sex Change, Rachel

Then again, they might see Rachel "Heavy Metal" Mann, the curiously named trans Canon of Manchester Cathedral.

The Bishop of Norwich

Or maybe just themselves.

Bohemian Grove

The official teaching of the Anglican Communion is that marriage is something that occurs between a man and a woman. Humans have always believed that, unless they're channeling the artistic Emperor Nero. Perhaps the reflecting Divines will see his spirit in the mirror?

Scry on,

"Marriage is between a man and a woman" will not fly in Hillary's America. And when you think about it, in Barack's America it took a substantial hit as he tried to "fundamentally transform America". The woman of the year was a 65 year old guy.

Why so much focus on sex? Sexual intercourse between a husband and wife to produce the next generation is a fairly common occurrence. It went on for hundreds and hundreds of decades without everyone talking about it, studying it, or being "taught" about how, when, and why to do "it."

I find it bizarre that people have made this the center of their existence.

LL, there's most certainly been a transformation as they've worked to remake humanity in their own image. But what's behind the mirror?

Adrienne, some argue that it's just the perennial attempt to play God, or to put it another way, the natural outworking of the liberal project to achieve radical self-autonomy. Sure, you may have to "work for the man" but he can't stop you becoming one if you feel like it, dammit!

Others simply write it off to neronian degeneracy.
