So, the Episcopal Church has done it again, ordaining their second gay bishop (this one, a female). Bishop Jon Bruno, who preached the sermon at the ordination service, said,
"The world's transformed only if we turn to each and every one of our brothers and sisters and see the face of Christ superimposed on them."

Pardon me, but this is sheer twaddle. If we change the Church to look more like the world, then the world is not transformed -- the Church is. Superimposing the face of Christ on others isn't the point -- seeing lives transformed so that Christ shines from behind each face is.

Behind all the religious talk, the "progressives" want the Church to be more like the World, because they confuse the kingdoms of this world with the kingdom of heaven.
