correct me if i'm wrong but are not bishops supposed to live a moraly upright life as an examle to the faithfull? How does someone who disregards the moral teaching in the bible and lives a sinfull life make her qualified to lead a church?
Its easy when you forget what is in the bible.
I tend to agree with Lujack on this one, the reason they chose a lesbian woman as a bishop probably has more to do with the why the Anglican Church is split in the first place than anything the Pope has said or done recently.
The worldwide Anglican Communion had agreed to a freeze on the election of gay clergy to stem a possible major rift within the church, and Bishop Forsythe says a split now seems inevitable.
"The Anglican Communion as a united body is now history, and now we are seeing a complete restructuring of relationships," he said.
"I think that is what the event is showing. Communion as a united body is now history.
"I am not saying this one event changes everything. It just continues to cement the trajectory towards a restructuring of the Anglican Communion in the world.
"I think it (a split) was inevitable before this frankly, but yes, I think it is inevitable now."
