OverArching Bishop of Canterbury

When asked if gay sex was sinful, the Archbishop of Cantebury, Justin Welby, said the following- (Lifesitenews reporting)

“You know very well that is a question I can’t give a straight answer to,” Welby answered, then added, “Sorry, badly phrased there. I should have thought that one through.”

Asked why he couldn’t answer the question, Welby responded: “Because I don’t do blanket condemnation and I haven’t got a good answer to the question. I’ll be really honest about that. I know I haven’t got a good answer to the question.”

“Inherently, within myself, the things that seem to me to be absolutely central are around faithfulness, stability of relationships and loving relationships,” Welby said. Asked if that applied to same-sex relationships, the archbishop said, “I know it could be,” but added that the traditional Christian view is that marriage is exclusively “between a man and a woman.”

“Yes, I am having to struggle to be faithful to the tradition, faithful to the scripture, to understand what the call and will of God is in the 21st century and to respond appropriately with an answer for all people – not condemning them, whether I agree with them or not – that covers both sides of the argument.”

It’s easy to remember for you, Welby.

Scripture says you Canterbury your junk in a man’s trunk.

I think the bishop is in the wrong profession.

(By the way, he looks gay.)

  1. When your “church” is run by gay atheists, you can see why your membership and overall civilization is in decline.

  2. In the immortal words of the late, great Sam Kinison:

    “Suck dick, lose the Kingdom. Romans 1. Next question, please.”

  3. The word, call and will of God is unchanged.

    The Anglican Church embraces abortion and has ordained bishops who are openly living in homosexual relationships.

    The Anglican Church has more than struggled with being faithful to Tradition, Scripture and God, the Anglican Church has disavowed and refused to accept Tradition, Scripture and God by trying to be all things, to all people.

    Matthew 7:13-14
    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

  4. He’s got his finger up in the wind ,instead of down on the Bible !
    Not sure where the other 9 fingers are, but I’d check with the Bishop of Dingleberry !!!

  5. Yes, I am having to struggle to be faithful to the tradition, faithful to the scripture…”
    This guy is the leader of a “Christian” Church?

  6. Um..er..God created them male and female..male and female HE created them I think is how it goes.

    He didn’t make them Barry and moo-mike.

    As much of a tortured soul the late great Sam Kinison was he nailed it on this one! A lot of Christians have trouble with Sam but he had been there and struggled with the serious issues.

  7. Has the fancy religious clothes and shiny bits down. The whole ‘reading the Bible’ thing, not so much.

  8. Is murder sinful? Theft? Adultery? Why? Are you sure, Justin? Are you comfortable judging peoples’ behavior on those issues?

  9. Well he should be thanked for being so candid, OTOH, anyone who after hearing this is willing to stay in his church another moment is a lost as he is.

    “If Satan will come to tempt you, he’ll be wearing the robes of a priest.” Bam ! (mic drop)

  10. 2 Tim 3:1-7. 2 key phrases that come to mind with regards to this joker:(v.5) Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof: from such turn away AND (v.7)Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

  11. imagine that a priest of a church who never read the bible.

    he was asked if it was sinful, he was not asked to condemn the sinners.

  12. CAN’T ANSWER A FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION THAT HAS BEEN CHRISTIAN LAW FOR 2000 YEARS.

    Disturbing that he doesn’t know God’s plan, and yet is a leader to help promote God’s plan.

    If there was any more reason to fire someone who doesn’t know their job description, this one is it.

  13. So he’s not familiar with the Lord’s position on this as shown in the scriptures?

    BTW, nice teeth courtesy of the UK’s wonderful single payer system.

  14. @ Tony R “This guy is the leader of a “Christian” Church?”

    He’s the leader of something, but it isn’t a Christian Church.

  15. A lot like Joel Osteen prevaricating on whether or not Mormons are Christians.
    If you deny the deity of Christ you are not a Christian.
