I hate posting on stuff like this because its so unedifying. But I feel some kind of deontological compulsion.
The Rev'd Elizabeth Kaeton is an ECUSA Priest in the diocese of Newark. She is the president of their standing committee. She is a partnered lesbian. She has a blog. She's an outspoken advocate of the New Religion that is the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. She is apparently a deeply troubled person.
Father Matt Kennedy is the mind behind Stand Firm. Yesterday Ms. Kaeton mused very publicly (on her blog) about Father Kennedy's wife, the Rev'd Anne Kennedy. Ms. Kaeton has decided that Mrs. Kennedy is a domestic slave, and that one day she will doubtless murder her own children, and then lay "their lifeless little bodies in a perfect row on their perfectly made beds in their perfect suburban home", and that the Kennedy children will thereby become martyrs of the feminist cause, unmasking the oppressiveness of the patriarchy at the root of traditional (=hateful) Christianity. Thus Ms. Kaeton's thoughts seem to run.
Read it all here if you like. Its shockingly gross, but also shockingly honest.
I think Ms. Kaeton probably has a diseased mind. I'd guess that she's suffered in life, probably at the hands of men. That's just a guess. But people usually don't think such horrid thoughts, nor give voice to them, out of the blue, nor even calculatedly, nor certainly out of humility, nor ever out of love. But while Ms. Kaeton's own baggage may explain why she'd think such thoughts and record them in a very public venue, it doesn't excuse her behavior. I hope she asks God and the Kennedy's for forgiveness, and I hope she can find the courage and humility to look for the help she needs to deal with the stuff in her consciousness that this vileness bubbled out of.
May God bless Father Matt and Anne Kennedy and their children, and Elizabeth Kaeton and her partner and their families.
