"Make it official―Go in peace"
Georgia Bishops Respond:
The pro-gay faction in our denomination is well aware that they lost the battle for changing the law through General Conference legislation in 2000. In April of this year, the odds are strong that they will lose again. With this legislative failure looming, the only option left was rebellion.
They, undoubtedly, are feeling noble and courageous for speaking out for what they believe is a great injustice. But, is it really nobility or courage at work here?
What has happened in Washington is more akin to the tantrum of a toddler who has learned he can't have his way. It is the kicking and whining of a self-absorbed child. Or, it could also be compared to the ways a pubescent child connives to manipulate parents into giving them their way.
There is nothing noble - nothing coming close to courage in this childish act.
They have declared in this action, "Since we can't get our way through the
proper channels, we will force our will on the rest of the church."
