    Sad story.

    It is so sad that a (presumably) sensible woman would want to be pat of the clergy that hates her for her sex and her sexuality.

  2. Yes, I entirely agree Simon. But i recently viewed a doco on transgender young people which had a very sad story of a transgender woman binding her/him self every day to go teach a bible class. I felt very sorry for him even though he had a kind straight sister urging him to come out and really live in his true identity instead of hiding behind a hating christian church.

  3. Agreed Simon. Why does she bother… the more gay people like this pander to their system of prejudice, the more we validate that prejudice.

    She needs a lesson in the difference between faith and religion.

    This is her staying in her seat and not going to the back of the bus moment I fully support her.

  5. In a way, of course, this IS Lisa’s Rosa Parks moment, and this IS a matter of social justice…

    But perhaps we need to examine a little more carefully just who is driving the bus, and where it’s travelling to…

    Does any self-respecting person (gay or straight) really want to be on board?

    After all, the god character portrayed in the Bible really resembles nothing quite so much as a petulant, narcissistic, wife-beating, child-abusing, feral Middle-Eastern male!

    What self-respecting, woman-loving woman would really want to encourage worship of a celestial, dysfunctional patriarch?

    Perhaps Lisa would be wiser to review her theological commitments, than to seek ordination in such a church?

    Like any organisation you want to fight, surley, it’s better to fight it from the inside rather than ya-booing on the sidelines. So, I wish the Lady all the luck in the world in her endeavers to get on the inside.

    There is something so unique about Christ. Ofcourse, just as there are false dawns before the dawn itself, and winter-days so full of sudden sunlight that they will cheat the crocus into squandering its bloom before its time or make some foolish bird call to it’s mate to start nest-building. So, there were Christians before Christ. For that we should be greatful. The unfortunate thing is that there have been none since.
