In a historic meeting, nearly 200 Episcopal Church General Convention deputies gathered here March 18 to begin a churchwide consultation on same-gender blessings.And, fellow 'Piskies, if you think they are even pretending to base this twaddle in anything, y'know, Scriptural... from that Bible thingy... think again:
When evaluating materials proposed for blessing same-gender relationships, the SCLM says, they "must above all be consistent with the implicit theology and ecclesiology of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer"Since when did the Book of Common Prayer become equal to the Bible? Is it now, an Even Newer Testament?
One other thing, dear readers - take a look at the images at the link. The lower image shows three African-American women, implying that this well-intentioned heresy effort has support across diverse groups. But look at the image of the overall gathering - notice anything interesting? Those three African-Americans appear to be the only ones in the crowd of 200. I've seen more racial diversity at Tea Party events.
UPDATE: I actually threw away 5 minutes of my life and went through the high-res image all blown up, and, there do appear to be two more definite, and one maybe, African-American women in the crowd in the background - and one man. But even with that, my 'whiter-than-a-Tea-Party-rally' conclusion seems confirmed.
