Alabama bishop defends Episcopal Church statement in support of ordaining homosexuals

Many observers, both conservative and liberal, say the 2006 moratorium has been essentially overturned by the new resolution.

[Henry] Parsley disagrees.

"My view is that it doesn't overturn the resolution from three years ago," Parsley said. "It reminds the larger church where we are in terms of valuing the gifts of all our members.

"This does not repeal the moratorium; it says we're open to all people. It affirms our relationships with the Anglican Communion and acknowledges that there are many who don't agree. It's very respectful. We continue to seek the mind of Christ."

Read it all.

We continue to seek the mind of Christ.

With all due respect, it is revealed in the Holy Scriptures.

ECUSA is like a child who has been told "no" by both parents and is now seeking permission elsewhere.

Vaclav, actually, I think ECUSA is more like the child who is told "Don't touch the stove top! It's hot and will burn you!" but they touch it anyway.

They're not looking for permission, they're willfully doing whatever they want when they know better.

Hopefully, the ABC left the burner on...

I would respect people like Bishop Parsley more if he would drop the spin and just admit what everyone knows anyway.

This wink and a nod is very troubling. Bishop Parsley only needs to read Integrity's website to realize what has happened. But, really he knows.

Have the courage of your convictions and move ahead full steam. People like Parsley are driving with their foot on the gas to the floor while trying to brake at the same time. Won't work.
