A recent article came out where Gene Robinson speaks about the problem of homosexual clergy (unfortunately Christian Post.com lost the link). One of the things that he points out is that there are many "gay" clergy actively working. I don't doubt it, clergy are sinners, too. Some, he says have active live-in partners. Apparently, something that is occurring in England according to his statements. Just to make it better their Bishops know about the situation and won't do anything. Yet, at the same time, if it ever comes out the bishop will be their worst enemy. Robinson laments the horrible pressure these poor homosexual priests face because of an unloving intolerant church.
The problem I see is not the church being unloving, it is the bishops engaging in active hypocrisy. Their public face says they are against active homosexuals serving but, they knowingly allow them to continue serving in secret. Oh, what tangled webs we weave.
If only they would wake up and realize that God doesn't change just because we find Him inconvenient. If these bishops really want to do their job they should be upholding the office of the keys and not condoning these sinful actions by their priests. But they don't, for they really do not believe in the Bible, instead they follow the ways of the world so they can seem loving. Then they add hypocrisy to their list of crimes against God by publicly condemning the very priests they supported in their homosexual lifestyle.
