Now, if you follow this blog you know that I’m chronicling the UK SOR regulations and subsequent fallout. These regulations are not all that they would appear to be on the surface, rather they are being fashioned as a weapon against the church, which in my opinion has been the intent all along.
Imagine my ‘surprise’ when I find that the test cases are already starting:
Reaney, 41, from Llandud-no, North Wales is bringing an action against the Hereford Diocesan Board of Finance, claiming that he was refused the job on the grounds that he was a homosexual. His complaint is being backed by the homosexual group, Stonewall, the notoriously anti-Christian political lobby group largely responsible for the imposition of the SOR’s.
Reany’s “orientation” was not the issue, the bishop said, “But Mr Reaney’s lifestyle had the potential to impact on the spiritual, moral and ethical leadership within the diocese.”
The Christian doctrine of sexual purity is still the official teaching and policy of the Church of England, and Bishop Priddis said, “What is at issue is the lifestyle, practice and sexual behaviour, whether the applicant is homosexual, heterosexual or transsexual.”
So, does this madness stop in the UK? Well, watch for the carbon-copy bill coming up in Oregon. Watch for the subsequent victimisation from those who will clothe themselves in victim status. Watch for the stab in the back from those who carry the cross, but reside in the pocket of the god of this age.
Welcome to Leviathan.
UPDATE: This bill has now passed in the Oregon House.
