Nevermind the Word of God...

(AP) Being a practicing homosexual is no bar to becoming a priest, the Scottish Episcopal Church says, a stance that puts it at odds with the Anglican Communion in other parts of the world.


The Scottish bishops expressed regret at the decision to request the withdrawal of U.S. and Canadian Churches from the ACC.

"We are conscious that as a church we are much indebted in our life both to a significant presence of persons of homosexual orientation, and also those whose theology and stance would be critical of attitudes to sexuality other than abstinence outside marriage."

"We rejoice in both," the bishops' response said.

Alright, gay priests now! Hey, it's only forbidden in the Good Book, but what do I know, right? I mean, homosexuality is genetic anyway...

1 Corinthians 6:9-10
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
