English Bishops In A Betrayal Of The Church

As a member of the Church of England my whole life, I must admit to a feeling of my faith being betrayed by a number of leading clergy who recently claim that ‘gay’ church marriages should be welcomed. I must admit that I find the current wave of liberation of homosexuality to be disgusting, degrading, and downright offensive to ordinary people. Now that high-ranking members of the church have voiced their opinions it makes me shudder to think of where we are heading. They are blatantly undermining the core values of Christianity and the Anglican church, and as clergymen have taken a step that could prove devastating in years to come.

Advocates Christian Marriage For Homosexuals

It does not surprise me that the leading figure in this controversy, Dr Jeffrey John, dean of St Albans is himself a homosexual, and that along with the Bishop of  Buckingham and the deans of Portsmouth, Norwich and Guildford has said that ‘gay marriage is nothing to fear’. Sorry, I do not agree!

There is no place for homosexuals within the sanctity of marriage, which is a sacred union between a male and a female before God. Homosexuality is unnatural and brings with it all kinds of problems. In some countries it is now legal for homosexual couples to become joined in a civil union, i.e. outside the church, but they are not satisfied with that. In some countries it is legal for homosexual couples to adopt children, which in my view is recipe for disaster.

I Want My MUMMY!

Considering all the new freedoms these people have been given they are still not satisfied, and will not be until they, in their words, obtain the same rights as heterosexual couples. I suppose there is some solace in the fact that they are physically incapable of producing their own offspring and I suppose we should be thankful for that lest they breed like flies. But there still remains the thorny question of their right to adopt children.

How can any intelligent person, and I stress intelligent, imagine that the adopted child of a homosexual couple will have a normal life? What do they call them, Daddy 1 and Daddy 2? As such a child grows older they are going to find out that all their friends have a father and mother and begin to wonder why they don’t. Once they get to school age they will become a target for any bully that comes along, for we all know that bullying is one of the scourges of being young. What are they going to think when they start to learn all about sex? Do I like girls or boys? These are serious questions, the answers to which will not be known for perhaps another fifteen years.

Who Thinks Of The Children’s Well-Being?

Any child growing up with two ‘fathers’ is going to feel sexually insecure, which could lead to permanent psychological damage. It doesn’t matter how attentive and loving the homosexual ‘parents’ are, they can never fulfill the role of a true mother. What effect for example would it have on a young girl who begins her first menstruation and cannot learn about and share the experience with a female mother.

All those human rights and ‘gay’ rights protesters that infest our land have been campaigning for homosexual freedoms, marriage and adoption, but it seems to me they just have not thought it all the way through.

Bah! Humbug!

There can be little doubt that time will tell if the union of homosexual couples in a church of God is a good thing, but I have the feeling that C of E church attendances will fall much more rapidly than they already are. Your average Christian will not accept homosexual marriages in the eyes of God in their church, and all  this will do is speed up the decay that has been taking place in churches across the country for many years as we see more and more atheists on our streets. Once the current generation of old folk have passed on our churches will be empty relics of a bygone age when people were brought up with Christian ideals and morality. It’s enough to make you want to become a catholic, for they at least are fighting against it.
