Even God backs gay marriage!, says Dr Jeffrey John

Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin Leviticus 18:22                                For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh Gen 2:24

Even my kindergarten kids know that in the beginning God created ‘Adam and Eve’, not Adam and Steve!.  God’s original plan or manifesto for the earth as a whole is for everything He created to multiply, be fruitful and replenish the earth. From the animals, birds, plants, fishes to mankind. Not so says Dr Jeffrey ..

‘Even God is in favour of same-sex marriage and the Church’s opposition should simply be ignored’, Britain’s most senior openly homosexual cleric has insisted.

 

What exactly is the Dr’s take on Sodom and Gomorrah or the meaning of ‘You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination’.. I suppose God has changed His mind, afterall Jesus Christ is Gay!.  My question to Dr Jeffery and people who support his   point of view is, when you read these portions in the bible, what do you think it means?. I am always baffled about Clerics called ‘representative of God on earth’ who are practising homosexuals ‘an act of perversion’ as it is in the Church of England. I am amused and would like to hear them interprete Apostle Pauls letter to the Romans 1:27 ‘in the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion’.  All I say is God help us all!

The Dean of St Albans, Dr Jeffrey John, accused the Church of England of hypocrisy on the issue of homosexuality and said it “frankly, doesn’t deserve to be listened to”.

Dr John, who is in a celibate civil partnership, was twice in line to become a bishop but his appointment was blocked because of opposition from conservatives within the Church.

It emerged earlier this year that he has examined the possibility of suing the Church for discrimination because of his treatment. He recently described it as the “last refuge of prejudice”.

In a highly critical positing on the website of the Out4Marriage campaign, which backs the change, Dr John accuses his own Church of failing to have a Christian attitude to gay marriage.

“I am sad because the Church that I love and serve is opposing it, when it should be rejoicing at it,” he said.

And [I am] sad because the Church is meant is show Christ’s face to the world and on this subject, it doesn’t.”

The Church of England has been accused of inconsistency in its attempts to reconcile traditional teachings on sexuality with more liberal interpretations.

Its current stance is that homosexual people can be priests but must remain celibate because of the Bible’s teaching on sex outside marriage.

Yet, at the same time, it is officially opposed to allowing gay couples to marry – although some senior clerics are in favour.

In its official response to the Government’s consultation on same-sex marriage, the Church of England even suggested that the move could open the way to disestablishment.

Dr John said: “If you are gay, please don’t judge God by the Church.

“The official Church doesn’t speak with integrity on this issue and so, frankly, doesn’t deserve to be listened to.

“If you are gay, then please understand that God made you as you are, and loves you as you are, and if you invite him into your relationship, then of course he will bless you and sustain your love just as much as he blesses and sustains any other marriage.

“I know that’s true from my own experience and that’s why I’m ‘out for marriage’, because I’m sure God is too.”
