As you were – almost

The frothing, loathsome, abominable, hateful, despicable and contemptible homophobic bigots of the Anglican Church won't form a breakaway organisation just because some people have a sexuality they claim their deity doesn't believe should exist, but what they will do is form "a new global network to fight against the preaching of 'false gospels' of homosexuality and other 'immoral' sexual behaviour", according to a tale in Pink News today.

False gospel of homosexuality. Hmm. I haven't come across that one before.

They've been meeting in Jerusalem at the Global Anglican Future Conference – GAFCON for short, but not for long, because it's closing down today. But not before this vile nest of hell's spawn have had their say on homosexuality, as if they didn't have other things to think about in a world that's far from perfect.

"The group which was formed primarily in objection to the ordination of gay clergy and the decision of the American Episcopal Church to elect the openly gay Gene Robinson to the post of Bishop of New Hampshire," says Pink News. It continues:

Gafon claims that some in the Church "promote a variety of sexual preferences and immoral behaviour as a universal human right". It claims God’s blessing for same-sex unions is against the biblical teaching on holy matrimony. "In 2003 this false gospel led to the consecration of a bishop living in a homosexual relationship."

And the sky didn't fall in. Fancy that!

Was I the only one to notice that 'GAFCON' sounds like something you might take for a stomach upset?
