Comments: reactions to CP statement

"Looking distinctly uncomfortable in announcing the policy, the Right Reverend Graham James, Bishop of Norwich . . . The bishop glowed pink when asked what would constitute a sexually active relationship and whether just kissing would qualify."

Uncomfortable and glowing pink?

I wonder why. ;-/

But nevermind that. This is what gets me:

"A House of Bishops' statement said: 'Partnerships will be widely seen . . .'"

In Christian perspective, everything that follows is IRRELEVANT.

Christians are NOT to judge by the way something is "seen"!!! ("Whited sepulchres", Hello?)

If the CofE Bishops can't wrap their heads around this---one of the most basic ethical instructions of the Gospel---it's no wonder they're making "glowing pink" fools of themselves.

Feel *dreadfully* sorry for my English Anglican kin (Praise Christ for North American Anglicanism!)

Usual silliness, which will be ignored and makes the CofE look daft.

Nothing new there.
