That Romish Church whence cometh the Episcopalians recently sent a nuncio to the UN delivering a letter indicating that parents are the primary educators of their children, promoting options "inclusive of home schooling." Though they might try, the Vatican must realize that they can't beat the UN when it comes to protecting children and family.

Meanwhile Episcopalians would rejoice with an openly-gay Archbishop of Canterbury.

"Rich holds a doctoral degree in psychology and religion".
That may be but sadly he doesn`t hold "the pardon for Sin" offered in Scripture & that is only obtained by first repentance & then Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ`s Sufficient Work at Calvary.

It is interesting to note that "queerness" was associated with "gayness" back in 1913
Webster's 1913 Dictionary wrote:
3. Loose; dissipated; lewd. [Colloq.]
It is too bad that word has been besmirched by time to mean debauchery. Of course there are more accurate words to describe homosexuals, something to teach your children The Hydra - The Many-Headed Monster of Secular Humanism.

Since the Anglican Church never started out as Christian Church, one should expect it to deteriorate over the years. A New Exodus? Americans are Exiting Liberal Churches.

"Another married gay man may succeed the retiring Bishop"

Word from late 14c., "full of joy, merry; light-hearted, carefree;" also "wanton, lewd, lascivious" (late 12c. as a surname, Philippus de Gay), from O.Fr. gai "joyful, happy; pleasant, agreeably charming; forward, pert" (12c.; cf. O.Sp. gayo, Port. gaio, It. gajo, probably French loan-words). Ultimate origin disputed; perhaps from Frankish *gahi (cf. O.H.G. wahi "pretty"), though not all etymologists accept this. Meaning "stately and beautiful; splendid and showily dressed" is from early 14c. The word gay by the 1890s had an overall tinge of promiscuity -- a gay house was a brothel. The suggestion of immorality in the word can be traced back at least to the 1630s, if not to Chaucer:
"But in oure bed he was so fressh and gay
Whan that he wolde han my bele chose."

Slang meaning "homosexual" (adj.) begins to appear in psychological writing late 1940s, evidently picked up from gay slang and not always easily distinguished from the older sense:" (Etymology)
