John Henry

Simon Sarmiento (Thinking Anglicans - Aug. 21, 2006)has a link to ++Rowan Cantuar's recent interview with a Dutch evangelical paper, including a transcript of the interview in English translation.

Now we know about ++Rowan. He has bought into the "evangelical" line with regard to the question of "homosexuality". "Homosexual," according to ++Rowan, "are to change their lifestyles." ECUSA is the culprit in the Anglican split!

Homosexuality is a blessing to society. It brings out the massive gender issues that we have, 15 years after the feminist movement went to sleep.

Disguised in the discussion is 'what is a natural human?' Conservatives run to the Bible, and thus to God, to prove the natural order of Creation based on reproduction. Femininism showed that women can operate in male fields. The current conservative hegemony is determined it is not going to lose THIS battle! After all, rock'n roll was a sin in the 1950's. Now rock bands are the choir in many youth focused Churches. Got to stop this change and make things absolute sometime!

Being hetero myself, I can be conceptually tolerant. But I once saw a gay porno for interest's sake, thinking my enlightenment would brush it off. I was astonished to FEEL repulsed, despite my good upbringing. How could I feel such things?

So I can understand where the homophobia comes from. It 'feels' natural. But if we are going to create 'heaven-on-earth,' the fact remains that there is no gender in spiritual reality. Even Jesus said you don't need a wife in heaven! And the spectrum of masculinity and femininity in every individual is vast.

So, the gay question is a wake up call to all homophobes of spiritual bent. What's your conception of spiritual reality if there's no gender in God's reality?

Hi John Henry: I actually liked the interview. he was clear that we have not really listened to the views of homosexual Christians. But I also think that he is right: the job of the archbishop is different than being a theologian. More on this later.

"Being hetero myself, I can be conceptually tolerant. But I once saw a gay porno for interest's sake, thinking my enlightenment would brush it off. I was astonished to FEEL repulsed, despite my good upbringing. How could I feel such things?

A lot of gay people feel the same way, re heterosexuality, Sun Warrior.

I mean, straights are our families (most of our parents). They're our friends, our fellow church-members...

...but what they do in bed, a man and a woman, together: Ewwwwwww!
