This morning I posted this photograph that appeared to be pictorial evidence of Gene Robinson wearing a mitre bearing the symbol of planned parenthood. It turns out that the image may have been faked?? If so I , of course, apologise, I took it on good faith.
However all that I wrote still stands for a quick search on the Internet, mitre or not, proves beyond doubt that he is indeed an outspoken supporter of planned parenthood a group that advocates abortion.
Here is what I wrote. Do you think the point stands even if no outrageous vestments were worn?
This is what occurs when you allow the thinking of the world to trump the revelation of Christ. It shows how far an ecclesial community can fall from grace when political agendas drive policy and not fidelity to scripture and tradition.
Why? Because it shows the American Anglican bishop, Gene Robonson, wearing vestments made to profess the most heartbreaking message. Nothing to do with Jesus or the Gospels but the secular thinking of our day.
The rainbow colours are clearly out of sync with any liturgical season. But then they are meant to promote not the kalendar of the church or any particular feast but to promote the homosexual cause. Bishop Robinson being a man who, having left his wife and children, now lives in an open gay relationship.
But worse than that is the symbol. It is not one of those ancient Christian symbols but the logo of Planned Parenthood an organisation that promotes abortion and artificial contraception. An organisation that actively works to help women destroy the babies in their wombs.
It is sickening and it disgusts me. What a terrible state the Anglican Church is in as a result of following the easy path of secular thinking and not the narrow path of biblical fidelity. I would go so far as to say that I see something demonic in this. It is the mocking of the sacred by the profane.
Sadly a great many well meaning people, such as Robinson, are so confused in their thinking that they are actively doing the will not of God but of those forces that hate him. Pray today for an end to the liberal voice within Western Christianity that ever threatens to lead souls to the abyss by shifting our hearts from a love of true faith to an endorsement of current worldly thinking
And how many who claim to be orthodox Christians within this communion will continue to do nothing and say nothing about this in the clear face of evil?
