Sydney Anglican Church League president, Mark Thompson, is obsessed with a Victorian bishop who bypassed the rule book... eventhough there is no rule! Mark is still whinging about the bishop who failed to discriminate against a gay priest. Mark says the Sydney Anglican Church League's voices of protest have been raised but no one is listening, let alone obeying... and that's because the bishop had no grounds to discriminate when he wasn't ordaining the priest. Mark calls the bishop's behaviour ...deliberate, provocative and scandalous because Sydney Anglicans who join the Anglican Church League expect to be obeyed!
Mark says the bishop is mocking the Anglican Church League, and those silly enough to seek their advice. It is for these reasons the bishop must be called into account... because nobody laughs at the Sydney Anglican Church League and someone has got to take the blame for very poor decision making on the part of conservative bigots.
Mark... if only you and the other ACL boys had been as diligent about gambling as you are about homosexuality... then you may have been in a position to judge another!
