EPISCOPAL CHURCH DIOCESE, PARISHES AND INTEGRITY ORGANIZATION FEATURED IN TOP
INTERNET PORN SITE
By David W. Virtue
An entire diocese, a number of U.S. parishes and the official Episcopal
gay and lesbian organization called Integrity are prominently featured
in what is billed as the "Largest Male Site on the Net."
Badpuppy.com the Internet home to more than one million images of male
erotica, live sex shows, amateurs, original models, chat rooms and
more, now list "ministries" of Episcopal parishes as a "resource" for
gay and lesbian people.
The porn site features the entire Episcopal Diocese of California with
its bishop, William Edwin Swing announcing that it, "Celebrates God's
Presence in Gay and Lesbian Life and Advocates Justice for Lesbian and
Gay People." No mention is made of the fact that this behavior can kill
Bishop Swing is also the founder of the United Religions Initiative
(URI) that is attempting to dissolve centuries of historic religious
traditions in favor of a pot pourri, religious stew unrecognizable by
any body or religious tradition.
Other prominent parishes in the Episcopal Church featured on this hard
core porno website include the Episcopal Church of St. John the
Evangelist in San Francisco, which describes itself as a "community of
faith welcoming ALL people." We invite you to join us, it opines.
A Center City (Philadelphia) Gay and Lesbian Outreach parish is also
featured declaring, "Our mission is to bring God's message of Salvation
through Jesus Christ to lesbian and gay people who have been cast out
or who have never heard Gods word. We believe the Church must find new
ways to carry the Gospel to the marginalized gay and lesbian
community." No mention is made of the fact that the gospel demands,
among other things, changed moral behavior.
The site features also include local religious news in Philadelphia,
and list many Episcopal churches in Philadelphia, as well.
Other Episcopal/Anglican organizations include the Alliance of Lesbian
and Gay Anglicans (ALGA) "a diverse, international coalition of
Anglicans who are united in working for the unconditional inclusion and
full participation of lesbian and gay people in every facet of the
church's life throughout the Anglican Communion."
Something calling itself ONElist says it provides a place and
opportunity for gay clergy (those in ministry, out of ministry and
those in training/preparation for ministry) to discuss issues that
concern their vocation and orientation.
Other links include a gay porn site called AGLO - Action For Gay &
Lesbian Ordination, and something called Heartstrong - the only
outreach in the world for GLBT students of conservative religious
The website also features a Calendar of Saints - Calenders and
biographies of alleged Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Saints.
However the Roman Catholic Church has never declared any of these
saints to be anything other than heterosexual. One suspects that the
LGBT had heard an ugly rumor that St. Ethelrod of Swish was suspected
of raising his cassock at inappropriate moments while passing fellow
monks in the cloisters. However the case was never proven and he died a
noble servant of our Lord. He was beatified in 1203.
Also featured prominently is the Metropolitan Community Churches,
America's official homosexual church, "primarily for Christians who are
gay, lesbian, transgendered, or bisexual BUT are welcoming
congregations for ALL."
Also included is INTEGRITY, the Episcopal Church's official sodomite
organization. It bills itself as "a nationwide association of lesbian
and gay Episcopalians and our friends." There are approximately 2,500
Episcopal gays and lesbians, and they have done a brilliant job in
perverting and twisting sexual behavior, convincing more than 100
bishops who do not know how to interpret Scripture and because gays and
lesbians love to tell them their stories in order to make them cry.
Also included is the Unitarian-Universalist Congregation who it says,
"welcomes and deeply cares for all people regardless of race, creed,
sexual orientation or physical ability."
AFFIRMATION, a link for gay and lesbian Mormons with chapters around
the world, says it "affirms and serves the needs of gays, lesbians,
bisexual LDS and their supportive family and friends through social and
As if to round off this blasphemy, a magazine calling itself The White
Crane Journal: A Journal of Gay Men's Spirituality featured two
articles with the titles; "Leathersex and Spirituality" and "Arousing
the Genitals of Jesus," the contents of which are too disgusting to
Jack Spong, the former Bishop of Newark, writes for a soft-core porno
site called ThePosition.Com. which is run by a self-described Anglo-
Catholic and former PENTHOUSE magazine editor.
One wonders if the pretense of orthodox Christianity can any longer be
sustained by a significant portion of The Episcopal Church. That a
certain segment of ECUSA has sunk to new lows of sexual depravity
cannot now be denied.
Can it be only a matter of time before the Primates ring down the
changes on ECUSA? Certainly the next meeting of Primates should be
decisive. Can the fiction be maintained that this church is even
remotely conforming to the Lambeth resolutions, or, at a deeper level,
Holy Scripture? The end is surely nigh.
