How many years is sufficient?
The better question is how much change in the candidate will be sufficient.
The church (in which I grew up, but have left) told McGreevy “Not now.” They didn’t say Never.
McGreevy has considerable work on himself left to do, I’d say.
I don’t see how this is anybody’s business but the American Episcopal Church’s. If they do not consider Mr McGreevey to be, at this moment, an appropriate candidate, then that is entirely their decision. It looks like it was taken with regards to their knowledge of his life and situation and is nothing to do with him being gay per se. The church ordains gay candidates with regularity.
I am really at a loss to see why Pink News considers this story to BE news.
This guy is a f–king train wreck; divorced, closet, affair with a male colleague, comes out, turns to religion. I’d have saved the money he spent on getting his degree in ‘Divinity’ and instead paid a therapist to sort out his issues. His life story is nothing short of schizophrenic and reminds me of that scene in the Simpsons where Homer lists all his previous careers; fireman, stripper, outsider artist, astronaut…..
“Let him who is without sin throw the first stone”—– so, you are perfect then? Or are you God? Oh wait, you would have to be God to be perfect.
For starters I don’t believe in this ‘God’ creation you speak of Mack, you deluded fool. Now f–k off back to praying on your knees and let the rest of us norms live our lives.
Funny how the concept of “normality” – once used to kick us – is now used by gay men to kick those it deems “abnormal.”
