It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Left-fascists in Christian clothing hate it when some in the flock cease following modernism like sheep.

First, an update from genuine journalists...

The Washington Times: Episcopal Church takes on dioceses dispute
The Episcopal Church plans to intervene in a property dispute involving two Northern Virginia parishes that voted to leave the American denomination last month, officials with the departing congregations said.

Next, the straight scoop on the rift...

The Christian Post: Episcopal Rifts: 'Issue is Orthodoxy, Not Homosexuality'
Widening rifts in the Episcopal Church are making headlines across the media and the seemingly ceaseless talks over a possible schism in the church have pushed Christians to "set the record straight"...

And finally, the subject of this post...

Did you ever notice how people who seem to be obsesessed with sex always accuse those with whom they disagree of being obsessed with sex?

The absurdly named Steve Gushee of the Palm Beach Post is a case in point...

Splinter group of Episcopal bigots bad sign

The cat is out of the bag. It is about sex, after all.

A veiled reference to that arch-fat-chicks-with-low-self-esteem predator King Goober II, kiddies.

The breakaway parishes in the Episcopal Church make all the right noises about their struggle for theological orthodoxy, biblical purity and traditional Anglican values.

Cut through all the verbiage, and their issue is sex, specifically homosexuality in the church's leadership, with a side order of bias against women.

Did you notice that, kiddies? He equates buggery with genuine Christian orthodoxy. Silly leftist polemicist.

The clergy in Truro Church and Falls Church in northern Virginia led their flocks out of the American Episcopal Church last month. In an extraordinary expression of self-righteousness, they aligned themselves with the Anglican Church of Nigeria and created a jurisdictional nightmare.

Rather a jurisdictional nightmare on earth than the genuine nightmare of eternal Hellfire, I always say.

They joined a renegade mission of the Nigerian church called the Convocation of Anglicans in North America that now boasts 21 parishes, according to The New York Times.

The group is under the insensitive direction of Nigerian bishop Peter Akinola, who reads Scripture literally and claims it says what he wants it to say. He equates gay leadership in the church with "a satanic attack."

Oooooh! "Renegade"! "Insensitive"! Poor Bishop Akinola, he must be terrified by this devastating theological fusillade.

Akinola supports a bill in Nigeria that would make any public expression of homosexual activity a crime punishable by five years in prison.

Steve, baby, you do know what those guys do to each other, don't you? You know about the depression, suicide, drug abuse, disease, injury, and promiscuity inherent in "the love that won't shut up", don't you? (Thanks to Pat Buchanan [via Ann Coulter] for this all-timer: "...homosexuality has gone from 'the love that dare not speak its name' to 'the love that won't shut up.'" ) You really ought to read a book or three, Steve-o.

He wants to bring his prejudices to this country. To that end, he has consecrated an American priest, Martyn Minns, rector of the Truro Church, to be a bishop in the Convocation. Minns will work under the authority of his Nigerian master in the vineyard of the American Episcopal Church.

"Prejudices"! "Master"! (As in slavery, kiddies!)

That is the height of ecclesiastical arrogance borne of mind-numbing hubris. Bishops of different jurisdictions do not muck about in another bishop's territory, but this sanctimonious crowd observes no such niceties. They alone, they claim, know the truth and read Scripture accurately.

"Arrogance"! "Mind-numbing hubris"! "Muck"! Put the thesaurus away, you clown.

The great danger in all this — apart from the disgraceful treatment of homosexuals — is the growing power of bigots to use the Bible to condemn those who are different. Christians have long done that against Jews, blacks and women.

So saith the stone-caster.

They use their religion "as a fig leaf to cover their naked prejudice," said the Rev. Peter Gomes, preacher to Harvard University who is a black, Republican, Baptist, gay minister.

Now that's what I call a Repansycan!

His simple presence would make Bishop Akinola and his American minions apoplectic. His words condemn them.

Yes, yes, Harvard...the last true bastion of genuine Christianity in America...

I do apologize for my tone throughout this post, kiddies, but for an orthodox Catholic, the prod crackup is a hoot.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
