The Bishop of Rochester has called upon queers to ‘repent and be changed’. I have to work very hard to psyche myself up to a state of anything stronger than indifference when it comes to pronouncements issuing from the Anglican Church, especially when they are fussing about what people do in the sack. Consider the universe: millions of galaxies, exploding suns, hurtling comets, black holes, trillions of miles of dark, silent nothing. How can any mind be so parochial as to imagine that the Creator - if Creator there be - of this bizarre, pointless complexity is so tiny-minded as to give a monkey’s about who fucks whom on our spinning mote of dust? How could this Creator be so demented as to be exercised about how or whether we mutilate our children’s genitals, on what days we trade or desist from trading, eat fish or fast, get bladdered or smugly abstain, or rip the beating hearts out of selected citizens every day to ensure that the sun will rise tomorrow? The Bish seems to think the Creator does indeed care – about some of these things anyway. How odd.
The Deity has a particular dislike of homosexuality, especially as practiced by men. In this, His position coincides remarkably with that of many straight blokes, so maybe it’s no wonder they cite Him in support of their prejudices. Perhaps like many straight blokes, God secretly gets his divine rocks off with thoughts of dykes making out, for certainly He has little to say in His Books against female homosexuality. We know Paul didn’t like lezzies, as he tells us in Romans 1:26, but then he seems not to have liked women much anyway, so this may not be yer actual Word of God here, but just Paul being a miserable git.
I shall ignore Nazir-Ali’s call to 'repent and be changed' and continue to ‘burn in lust’ toward other men, for in this I see nothing unseemly or against nature. If God made male beauty, I see no reason not to appreciate it to the full. And if God didn't make male beauty, I still see no reason not to worship it. So yah boo sucks to the 'Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans', and if this new group ‘splits the Church’ as the Bish of Sherborne now fears, tough tit. I don't give a stuff.
