Now, a couple of weeks ago, they passed D025 which by everyone else’s reading overrode B033. This generated considerable negative reactions. So Ms Schori sent out a letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, stating, “Some are concerned that the adoption of Resolution D025 has effectively repealed Resolution B033. That is not the case.”Oh, really? Now we have three openly homosexual candidates for three bishop positions. I am sure that Ms Schori will sending out requests for these candidates to withdraw…yeah, right.Jesus said, “Let your ‘yes’ be yes and your ‘no’ be no. Anything else is of the evil one.”For Ms Schori and the rest of the liberals, we have their ‘yes’ is maybe and their ‘no’ is maybe, and we may conclude they are of the evil one.
