Loving the Bishop who's hating the gays?
Are you exhorting the Bishop to "Lets let go of the hate, anger and ignorance?." -- or me/everybody to let go of hating those who hate? I guess that was Jesus' famous quote on the cross. "Forgive them for they know not what they do."
Well. . .maybe it's Time for Education--for that IS a form of Love -- Protest is a form of education -- as the Faithful America group is trying to do--& every other group that's advanced civilization has tried to do & done--the Civil Rights Movement, the Feminist Movement & all the other freedom movements, as well as Environmental, Healthy Food Revolution, etc. etc.
Maybe it's Time that people DO KNOW what they do (or forbid) & why. Maybe it's Time that people LOVE by not accepting & complacently compliciting in the hate--again the analogy of the Holocaust--if the "other people" had protested/had not accepted the Nazi hate when it was in its infancy, it wouldn't have become the monster it became.
