My Doctrine-O-Matic has spit out the following revised Bible passage for the Episcopalians.
Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband of one wife and no more than one committed relationship with someone of the same sex, temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher. –1st Tim 3:2
Heh-heh. I trust you.
But that was written Wednesday, and now it’s Thursday, so there’s nothing that fusty old stuff can say to me and my noble “co-adjutor”, Fluffy.
I can’t believe you are using that Triumphalist, hegemonic, patriarchal translation! Haven’t you heard? It is now “life-intentioned” relationships. Please get with the program or I will report you to the intolerance police. We can have no one out there interpreting scripture for himself, especially if his interpretations vary the slightest from the Agenda.
This is a New Age of Compassion, and it is time for people like you to get with the program. Sheesh, you people!
