The first openly-gay Episcopal bishop, Gene Robinson, has said he will 'divorce his husband' at the end of a 25-year relationship. Robinson, 66, is now retired and has long been regarded as a vanguard in the gay community for breaking down the integrity of marriage and opening the institution, in a legal manner, to same-sex couples.
If by undermining the integrity of the faith, yes, it's an accomplishment.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In a move that should come as little surprise, Gene Robinson, who made headlines by becoming the first openly-gay Episcopal bishop and by legally marrying another man, has announced his pending divorce.
Robinson, in a letter to The Daily Beast said: "It is at least a small comfort to me, as a gay rights and marriage equality advocate, to know that like any marriage, gay and lesbian couples are subject to the same complications and hardships that afflict marriages between heterosexual couples."
In other words, he is heralding the act of divorce as yet another victory for his deviant lifestyle choice.
No mistake should be made. Homosexual relations are the product of choice, not birth. Just as a person must make a choice to drink alcohol, they also make a choice to engage in sexual relations with a partner of the same sex.
These choices are the product of a disordered sexual appetite.
The scriptures are blatantly clear that homosexual deviance is sinful and wrong and is condemned by God. People who choose this lifestyle are likewise choosing sinful behavior. Many homosexuals are atheists, or they must be, because they are willingly choosing to engage in behavior that is fundamentally anti-Christian.
It becomes even more bizarre when they seek to hold Christian responsibilities, such as serving as a member of a clergy, while also pursuing homosexual relations.
The sickness is so pervasive that those who pursue homosexual relationships go so far as to define themselves by how they achieve orgasm. Instead of presenting themselves to society as defined by their work, or their values, they identify themselves as homosexuals as if to accomplish some gratification from the announcement.
That the United States continues down the road to perdition, choosing to legally endorse sexual deviance as though it were normal and consistent with moral teaching and natural law is absurd and contrary to the well-being of the nation's moral fabric.
Yet as a nation that continues to elect leadership with blatant disregard for moral principles and religious freedom, we get what we deserve.
