ECUSA Head: Homosexuality a "Gift"

Surprised? ECUSA's new Presiding "Bishop," Katharine Schori, not only voted for the consecration of Gene Robinson, but she likens homosexuality to one of the gifts of the Spirit. Asked on CNN if homosexuality is a sin, she replied:

I don't believe so. I believe that God creates us with different gifts. Each one of us comes into this world with a different collection of things that challenge us and things that give us joy and allow us to bless the world around us. Some people come into this world with affections ordered toward other people of the same gender and some people come into this world with affections directed at people of the other gender.

One wonders if this is not the reason the Apostle Paul wrote, "Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant" (I Cor. 12:1). Romans 12:6-8; Galatians 5:19-24; and Ephesians 4:8-19 are also instructive. Buggery isn't to be found.

please, Benjamin, could you ask that new priestress-bishopess-metropolitaness-whateveress if it is possible for her to set herself on "pause". She comes so much out with strange things, I have no time to translate it all for the unbelieving French talking here.
We tought we had reached the deepest depth in Belgium, with the pro-homo RCC people. It seems it was only a step.

Kyrie eleison
