We would very much like to know what the Bishop's scientific credentials are .. That homophobia is a mental illness is well documented now .. The statement about the origin of homosexuality is not .. Nice ( but mediocre ) try ..

I grew up in the misery synod, also, and found it to be frighteningly right-wing, very anti-gay, and extremely paternalistic. I'm SO glad I left and found the United Methodist Church.

I doubt that Martin Luther said that. The Democratic Party didn't exist when he was alive.

He wasn't a good one then. I seem to recall him having some issues he didn't foresee.

The most important thing is that he ended every one of his sermons with the call: "More Bier ! Katie, More Bier !:)"

Did I eventually read the headline correctly that this one is condemning _homophobia_?

Because I didn't read it correctly at first glance.

The bishop is a Dominican. THAT speaks volumes to those who know the orders.
