  1. It’s still religion, though. Let’s not get too excited. It’s all about controlling young people, getting them scared into believing that if they don’t do what they’re told they’ll spend eternity being tortured – and once you’ve done that you pretty much own them.

  2. “For me, and I believe many others here, the definition of tolerance is prejudice with a smile”.
    Couldn’t agree more, I hate being tolerated simply for refusing to change the way I was born.

    The day an Anglican church supports equal civil marriage and rebukes the hierarchy, then perhaps I’ll listen. Until then, bog off!

    The Anglicans still can’t (officially) have Gay men as a priest… much for inclusion

    1. Errm…There are quite a few openly gay clerics in the Church of England. They are officially gay, officially men (at least, most of them) and officially priests.

    Well there is some progress here. I from across the pond see a lot of signals that the CoE is changing, even despite the women bishop thing

    Going to take time but they sure must see the writing on the wall, eg 400 to 175

    And they will leave the child rapers of Rome all but alone. Hopefully the church of horrors is headed for death

    Old news! Inclusive Church was founded in August 2003, shortly after Jeffrey John had been persuaded to turn down the post of Bishop of Reading, so it’s been around almost 10 years. The pity of it is that it hasn’t spread much.

    And to be fair David, after many years of worshipping in churches across the country, I still seem to have a mind of my own. My father, now a retired Methodist minister, always impressed upon me that it is our privilege and duty to ask questions. If it’s all about blind obedience, why would we need theologians?

    1. Indeed. And many people seem to forget that the creator of Pink News is himself a theologian.
