Diocese Of Dallas Feels The Love

Do you follow Anglican church news? No? Who can blame you, but we're here to tell you that 24 gay marriages were celebrated, blessed or recognized in the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas last month. So what? So a lot.

The Bishop of Dallas, George Sumner, is against gay marriage because he's a Christian but he allowed it anyway. Why? Because his gay denomination told him to, it's their law, passed at General Convention last year.

Rather than go against his denomination's gay rules the Bishop of Dallas played along, declaring himself to be in "impaired communion" with the rainbow but in "full eucharistic fellowship with it." What does that even mean?

How are you in "impaired communion," Sumner and all the rest? You're still up for receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion from these people, so how's your communion impaired? In the mind apparently, you don't like what they're doing. 

Who can blame you, but it doesn't say much for your understanding of the communion of the church. This, apparently, has been downgraded to an affair of like and dislike, of mere relationship instead of the organic unity of the Mystical Body of Christ caused and evidenced in the Sacrament of the Altar.

Regardless, here's the advice of this mind-blog. Do. Not. Give. An. Inch. Instead, take the fight to the enemy. After all, they're doing the same to you. Just look at Bishop Love. But look, Communion Partners, don't fear the reaper.

Your Friend,

Too bad you can't impeach a bisho for having a linguine spine.

This is not the Episcopal church I was raised in and that saddens me.

Linguine spine? Love it.

That's a sad article you linked to, LSP. The two poofs who run the choir at my old parish are friends with a couple of Seattle Episcopalian "married" poofs. They're very prominent in their Seattle parish. Weird - to say the least.

On a lighter note, I was working at Creative Drum in Phoenix when Donna Summer played a concert there. We provided the drums and I was in charge of getting them there, getting them back, and seeing that they didn't get damaged. Donna Summer was one of the nicest and loveliest ladies I'd ever met. She was delighted that we shared a birthday (Dec. 31.) RIP, Donna.

I 2nd the motion, Pewster. They should all be put in a cage.

LSP said...

Same here, Jim.

Well said, Adrienne, it is sad and all the sadder for the poofs trying to pretend it's so gay and happy. Sadder still the Church's devolution into feelz.

What a great Summer story! She was most talented unlike our current crop of pop genius superstars.
