If you are going to embrace sin, do it all the way!

Here is a shocking bit of news. The Episcopal Church-USA has elected another homosexual as a "bishop" (well, an "assistant bishop" whatever that is). Open and unapologetic lesbian Mary Glasspool was elected by a sizable number of delegates in Los Angeles.

This was the most telling part:

"One of the reasons she is so the right person for this is that she knows who she is and she knows she belongs to God and she knows everything else falls in place when you keep that central," ("Bishop" V. Gene Robinson) Robinson said in a phone interview. "She's no stranger to people who think she shouldn't be a priest because she's a woman, or think she shouldn't be a priest because she's a lesbian."

Well that makes so much more sense than what Paul wrote about what someone the "right person":

The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil. (1Ti 3:1-7)

I mean who wants someone like that when you can have someone like Mary Glasspoool, someone who is so "self-aware". The whole point of the Gospel is for you to feel good about yourself, embrace your sin and find yourself. Kudos to the Episcopal Church for another courageous stand against that great enemy of Christianity: the Bible.
