The Episcopal Church just slid a little further down the slippery slope.
Bishop Andrew Smith of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut has authorized priests to bless homosexual couples during religious ceremonies, reports The Washington Post. The State of Connecticut approved homosexual civil unions last year.
“I believe in my heart and soul that it is time for this church, this diocese, formally to acknowledge and support and bless our sisters and brothers who are gay and lesbian, including those who are living in faithful and faith-filled committed partnerships,” Bishop Smith said in a Saturday speech at a diocesan conference in Hartford.
If Bishop Smith is truly interested in supporting and blessing homosexuals, perhaps he should teach them what the Bible says about their behavior:
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. ” (I Corinthians 6:9-10 NASB)
