As soon as I saw that President Obama had asked Gene Robinson, the openly gay former Episcopal bishop, to deliver the closing prayer at the annual Easter prayer breakfast, I couldn’t wait to see the Christian right losing their minds over it. Jeff Allen, come on down:
Blasphemy: Obama Picks ‘Gay’ Bishop for Easter Prayer
President Barack Obama hosted about 150 Christian leaders at the Fifth Annual Easter Prayer Breakfast on Monday. At the conclusion of the event, the president chose to desecrate the Easter observance by spontaneously inviting the Episcopal Church’s first self-avowed, practicing homosexual bishop to offer the closing prayer. In his and the culture’s celebration of everything “gay,” apparently nothing is sacred…
At one time, even Bishop Robinson thought marriage should be defined only as the union of one man and one woman. But he later embraced apostasy and began an open homosexual relationship with Mark Andrew. The two made it legal in a civil “union” ceremony in 2008, followed by a “religious” service, both held in St Paul’s Church, Concord, New Hampshire. Earlier, Robinson reportedly said, “I always wanted to be a June bride.” Oh, please!
Evidently, there’s solidarity between fellow “evolvers” on this issue.
Blasphemy! Desecration! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!
