  1. “The consultation document, written by the Kirk’s special commission, called for gay people in the church to speak out about their struggles to reconcile their sexuality and religion.”

    It is not for gay men and women in the CoS to speak out about their struggles … it’s the responsibility of the CoS to love and accept ALL of their God’s creation, and by doing so, as their Lord commanded them, to create a culture of acceptance rather than one of judgement!!!

    surely if someone feels strongly enough about the direction of this church, they should have the courage of their convictions to say it openly.

  3. … and next year … “the computer says NO”

  4. But the cock says, YES. You can’t beat nature.

  5. And how will this ballot be acted upon, exactly? Why is it secret? Will it be used to deny people the chance to test their vocation as ministers on the say-so of people without the guts to refuse them it to their faces? I thought that Calvinistic congregational democracy was about open decision-making? Or is it about the mealy-mouthed and cowardly hypocrisy of Bible-bashers who can’t defend their selective text-bashing?
    Looks suspiciously like the latter.
