St. Augustine said that about 1600 years ago, and yesterday Kendall Harmon repeated it on The News Hour with Jim Lehrer.
His debate opponent Susan Russell managed not to respond to it, when she could have easily clarified what the schism in the Episcopal Church is all about. So I will say it for her:
“The schismatics think that labeling Gay sex as sinful is an essential of the faith. We think that’s ridiculous. Since Jesus never mentioned Gay sex, our judgment about it cannot be an essential teaching. But they think it’s so important they want to write it into a new creed. The Apostles Creed isn’t good enough for them, the Nicene Creed isn’t good enough, so now they want to force the Episcopal Church to adopt a new creed written by a Gay-hating Nigerian. Our answer is simple: anti-Gay bigotry is immoral. Stop wasting the Church’s time with this Akinolan Creed when we’ve got hungry people to feed.”
