Last night I talked to an openly gay man who is leaving the ECUSA, after being a lifelong Episcopalian. Why? "Because," he said, "I am a sinner. But I know that my Redeemer lives, and that one day I will stand before him. Gene Robinson is denying the living God. My God lives. And all this human bull$#!* heaped up against him is for nothing."
He told me that he had decided to leave when he read this talk between +Gene Robinson and Planned Parenthood. He said that he had wept and, though he loved Anglicanism, that he knew he could not find redemption here, and that redemption was what he needed most.
He is becoming Greek Orthodox.
What can ECUSA say to people like that? This is my second openly homosexual friend to leave ECUSA over what they say is a false gospel. The other became Roman Catholic.
