What could possibly be more ironic, more inherently hilarious, more filled with mental gymnastics than a Christian bishop calling for tolerance?

I mean, HELLO? We are talking about what is arguably the bloodiest religion in the history of mental disorders. I can't cite any studies or statistics, but where is there a religion that can even begin to compare to Christianity in terms of the important religious metrics like body count and heathen cultures destroyed?

I mean, let's face it, Christianity invented genocide. They turned mere murder into a pious act, a sacramental ritual, a doorway to heaven.

So here we have this gay man, I'm sure he is a very nice person, asking Christianity to give up it's holiest activity of all: condemnation.

Surely condemning others to Hell is the central core of Xianity. Nothing is more important than being holier than. As such, Christianity has always needed a fresh supply of others to be the ones that are unholy, evil, bad, spawn of Satan. For us gay folks, we're up, it's our turn to be Satan personified.

Bishop whatever his name is can be very proud of his own tenacity and perseverance, but if he thinks he can paint a human face on the biggest hate machine in history he has many disappointments in his future.

I wish him well though. At least he personally is not a hate monger, despite his religious affliction.

A gay bishop? Who ever heard of such a thing?

Of course the only reason he's calling for "tolerance" is because he himself is gay. I notice he's not calling for tolerance for atheists, or abortion doctors, or Wiccans, or any of the many other groups the RCC hates.

Point taken, and oh so true.

Bishop Vicky is Episcopal. That means he's part of the "Anglican Communion". Apart from some noteable exceptions the Anglican communion is known for its ecumenicalism, social awareness, "liberalism" and tolerance (once we got over that whole lady vicar thing). He's not the only gay bishop we've got, and he's certainly not the only "out" member of the clergy.

It has produced many noteably and generally tolerant clerics such as Vicky, John Robinson (author of Honest to God, coincidentally former Bishop of Woolwich, the area I live in.), Spong and the current Archbishop of Canterbury... off the top of my head. I could go on and on...

Indeed, we've even had open agnostics and atheists in our ranks. They make excellent clergy. :roll:

I heard about this fellow, Diego de Landa, last night on the History channel. He committed a heinous crime against humanity by burning every scrap of Mayan writings he could find. I sometimes wish there really were a hell, so bastards like this could burn there for their crimes - but, alas, no such luck!

We found a large number of books in these characters and, as they contained nothing in which were not to be seen as superstition and lies of the devil, we burned them all, which they (the Maya) regretted to an amazing degree, and which caused them much affliction.

Especially if you want people who actually know their way around scripture. :Happy:
