As I was watching the program "Now" on PBS Friday night, listening to a female Episcopal bishop explain the debate over gays in the church, articulately outlining the positions, taking great pains to portray the debate over gays as a scriptural disagreement, and even though she was on our side...it just wasn't working for me. This isn't about a disagreement over what the bible says. It isn't about people resisting change. It's about people hating queers and wanting the bible to enforce their bigotry.
But let's all pretend that the nice church people who rail against programs that help the poor while stuffing their own faces, cheat on their spouses, betray their fellow workers, leer at the neighbor's daughter, hire male prostitutes, support torture and lust after a bigger McMansion, are just objectively concerned that some people are not in compliance with the bible. "It's not about the gays...it's about the bible." What a charade.
