Abortion - "Bishop" Gene Robinson backs Planned Parenthood
The Washington times has an article on Episcopallean Homosexual Bishop Gene Robinson support for abortion and planned parenthood.
Gene spoke at a Planned parenthood leadership conference, which in itself tells you alot about his beliefs. But, he specifically suggested Planned Parenthood target religious people saying
Our defense against religious people has to be a religious defense. ... We must use people of faith to counter the faith-based arguments against us,
What i find amazing is Gene's complete lack of logical consistency, as he says
We have to take back those Scriptures,...You know, those stories are our stories. I tell this to lesbian folk all the time: The story of freedom in Exodus is our story. ... That's my story, and they can't have it.but continues later with
What an unimaginative God it would be if God only put one meaning in any verse of Scripture,
So, they, the religious conservatives can't have the stories, but we should be able to interpret them several ways?? But then surely the conservatives are allowed to interpret them in their own way as well?
It seems this only applies to people who agree with Gene.
His cognitive dissonance continues when talking about abortion, saying
not just a matter between a woman and her body. This is not like removing a mole. On the other hand, no one should interfere with a woman's right to choose.Is the baby a human life? it certainly seems that Gene is implying this is the case. So essentially he is saying that it is okay for the women to choose to murder that life. And in fact, that it is her right. It is obvious Gene is not getting his morality from the Bible.
More comments to the Planned Parenthood leaders raise the question as to whether he gets his view of salvation from the bible either
I know, in the end, that I'm going to heaven, and so are you, You and I can do this work no matter how hard it gets, because we know we're going home.
The washington Times finishes up with a couple of sobering paragraphs
The Rev. Ignacio Castuera, a Methodist and Planned Parenthood's national chaplain, said he is trying to increase the size of their clergy network, which currently has 1,400 pastors and clergy.So not only do planned parenthood have 1400 pastors and clergy supporting them, but we also see the clear divide in morality in america. With the liberal coasts versus the center of the country.
Working with clergy on the West and East coasts is easy, Mr. Castuera said, "but when you move further into the country it gets harder. ... In the center of the country we have a lot more conservative perspectives on the Bible and sex."
Another way to look at is that the 'conservative' perspectives actually think the bible means what it says, whether it is about protecting innocent life, abstaining from sex outside of marriage, divorce and not engaging in homosexual acts.
Anyone who doubts the validity of the slippery slope argument needs to go no further. "Bishop" Gene shows quite clearly how his misinterpretation of biblical values extends into every area.
