Other religions' views

[Duluth News-Tribune] January 2005--Nearly every denomination contains unofficial groups of divergent opinion within their memberships about ordaining partnered gay or lesbian pastors and blessing same-gender unions.

With so many Christian denominations and world religions considering homosexuality as sinful, forbiding homosexual practice, and disapproving of homosexual activity, one must wonder why the Episcopal Church USA has embarked on its present course, a course which is not only dividing that church but also tearing the Anglican Communion apart. Obviously the Episcoapl Church's leaders are blind not only to the light that God gives through the Holy Scriptures and Christian tradition but also to any light that he may give through other religions.
