Virginia episcopalian foolishness

From Stand Firm in Faith Anglican blog, regarding recent Virginia episcopalian foolishness:

BabyBlue has the story here and here.

The entire resolution reads as follows:

R-4a Integrity of Committing Relationships

RESOLVED, that the Diocese of Virginia recognizes our responsibility to respond to the pastoral needs of our faithful gay and lesbian members in a spirit of love, compassion and respect, and in doing so seek to fulfill our baptismal commitment to respect the dignity of every human being; and be it further

RESOLVED, that accordingly the 214th Annual Council of the Diocese of Virginia affirms the inherent integrity of and blessededness of committed Christian relationships between two adult persons, when those relationships are “characterized by fidelity, monogamy, mutual affection and respect, careful, honest communication, and the holy love which enables those in such relationships to see in each other the image of God.” (Resolution 2000-D039 of the 73rd General Convention of the Episcopal Church).

The significance of this resolution cannot easily be overstated, because not only does it affirm same-sex behavior, not only does it effectively nullify the significance of the sacrament of Holy Matrimony, but it comes out of what has thus far thought to be a moderate-to-conservative diocese, institutionalist though it has behaved for the last few years. . . .

    Don’t the people who promulgate these rules and regulations ever read the Bible? How can they put forth such blatant proposals if they do?

  2. Thomas says:

    Well, if the admonition against adultery is ignored, then various other individual and institutional sin follows.
