Is Anglican Mainstream in bed with right wing Republicans? Could the Republican Party suffer the same fate as the Anglican Church and split?

Anglican Mainstream took great delight in publishing a post from US conservatives protesting same-sex marriage. The underlying conflict is a result of the Republicans having their first gay candidate, Fred Karger. It seems that not many Republicans like homosexuals and a lawyer by the name of Bopp is representing those who oppose same-sex marriage. Bopp explains...“I understand that law is art...Picasso, Van Gogh, Michelangelo — they are all very different, but all create masterpieces.” Mr. Bopp also makes no apologies for his partisanship. A veteran member of the Republican National Committee, he is the leader of a movement to deny party support to any candidate who fails to affirm at least 8 of 10 principles, including opposition to “government-run health care,” “amnesty” for illegal immigrants and “Obama’s socialist agenda.”

Geez... and Anglican Mainstream worry about two people of the same sex hopping into bed together... I think there are bigger concerns for the people in the UK! I mean what hope has the church got when clergy are aligning themselves with extreme right wing US politics? It's a bit like fighting the Russians, by empowering the Taliban in Afganistan! I hope Phillip Jensen and his family think twice before creating a climate like that in Sydney... because next, they'll want the Prime Minister to come from the Shooter's Party...Oh that's right, a lot of National Country Party candidates hold gun licences! NO I'M NOT AN EVANGELICAL and the next person who says that I am, will get sued!

Sued! Did you say sued? Now you do sound like an evangelical who believes in freedom of speech... as long as it's your own!
