I guess we should not be surprised that the General Commission of Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns, which has labelled itself a "Reconciling" Commission could not hold a consultation that was truly representative of our denomination. Except for one or two exceptions all the presenters represent the view that homosexual behavior is acceptable. Robbins who worries about the increasing division in our church does not see how he and those who agree with him helped to cause this division. How ironic that a commission based on Jesus' call for unity is itself divisive, heretical and stands outside the ecumenical consensual tradition. In the name of dialogue, fairness of representation why were other scholars like Richard Hays, Tom Oden or Billy Abraham not invited. At least then we would have a fair representation. Unfortunately the consultation was a sham and will be seen for what it is.
