    CONCORD, N.H., June 7 — In a national first, New Hampshire Episcopalians on Saturday elected an openly gay man as their next bishop.


    2 Peter 2:
    12: But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
    13: And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
    14: Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
    15: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
    16: But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
    17: These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    18: For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    19: While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    20: For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21: For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22: But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    I saw this on the news tonight also. I must admit to have been surprised to see this. I was under the impression that the Episcolian Church already had openly Gay people on their payroll in leadership positions.

    They have lots of gay priests, not any gay bishops.

    They call themselves "progressive". Sad. They believe the lie of satan and I would call that "regressive".

    The Anglican Church, otherwise known as the Church of England, and the Episcopalian Church here in the U.S. are basically the same. The Church of England recently installed an openly gay man (who also claims to be a modern pagan) as the Archbishop of Canterbury. Sad! :( [​IMG] :(

    Fortunately, from what I have seen on mission trips the Anglican Church of Kenya seems to be fairly conservative. I believe the same can be said of the Anglican Church in most African nations based on the news reports from the BBC. The African Bishops generally take a strong stance against homosexuality and maintain a fairly conservative evangelical position on the inerrancy of the Scripture.

    Throughout the Bible, The Lord speaks about homosexuality and how it is an abomination.

    My father told me a long time ago, that "rainy day" christians read the Bible just like we do. However, they skip over the parts that they either don't like or are too hard to live by. Wouldn't that be considered taking away from His word?

    Sad, Sad, very sad.
