They have said that eighty percent of my parish would join: the former catholics with gay relatives and friends. The anti-gay marriage men who approve of their children being magnanimous towards gay people. The elderly women who adored the openly - very openly - gay organist. But they are for leaving ECUSA.
I will begin preaching about the evils of homosexuality, the apostasy of the church every Sunday.
Lets see. This sunday we've got a reading about the restoring of the kingdom after Cyrus and the feeding of the five thousand. Hm. I was going to preach about how we invite people into the parish, and how we are gathering the exiles, but I think, instead, I will preach about the gay agenda.
I don't really know what it is, but I think everyone will know.
And its bad.
Whatever it is.
Making people gay, or something. They might steal another excellent word for themselves.
I know. At the end of every sermon, I will say, yes, Jesus saves. But not if you accept the gay agenda.
And I know that my parishioners will cheer.
They will abandon their gay friends and hang out with Christian people.
We will encourage our lesbian family to reconsider their ... pollution. I will ask them not to come forth to communion until they reject the gay agenda. Of course, they've told me that they don't get political, but I don't believe them. I'm sure they are part of it. As well as those single men who have started to appear in church. Hm. Dangerous, I think.
My former Sr. Warden will have to talk to his sibling about her sinfulness.
And I know that my social worker and psychologist parishioners will have to find christian literature to back up their claims that homosexuality is normal.
And the old ladies who think we should be open and magnanimous will have to reconsider the teachings over the last 75 years of modernist christianity.
But 80 percent of them... they'll join me.
When I explain the gay agenda to them.
My new friends in LEAC have nice ties. They are the sort of people I want in my church. Clean. Pious. Holy. Friendly.
And afraid. Deeply afraid.
