"A lesbian bishop, you say? Now that is kinky!"
The Times' Ruth Gledhill reported yesterday that, 'the Archbishop of Canterbury warned today that the election of a lesbian bishop in the United States raises "very serious questions" for the entire Anglican church.'
Why does it raise 'very serious questions' for the entire Anglican church? Surely, this is just logical progression? I've done some quick maths (not my strong point, I know) but I think this just about works out:
Anglican Communion + Astronomical Heights of Navel-Gazing = Openly Big Gay PriestsI think this just about sums up the state of the Anglican Communion.
Anglican Communion + Openly Big Gay Priests + Intense Beard-Stroking = Lady Priests
Anglican Communion + Openly Big Gay Priests + Lady Priests + 'Um-ing' and 'Ah-ing' = Lady Bishops
Anglican Communion + Openly Big Gay Priests + Lady Priests + Lady Bishops + Cream Tea Mornings = Openly Big Gay Bishops
Anglican Communion + Openly Big Gay Priests + Lady Priests + Lady Bishops + Openly Big Gay Bishops + Generous Helping of Tolerance Crumble with Runny Yellow Custard = Openly Big Lesbian Bishops, Total Farce and Sudden Rise in Applications from Transgendered/Cross-Dressing/Ladyboys of Bangkok community for the Anglican priesthood.
