Gay Episcopal “bishop” invited to pre-inauguration event in DC

This deplorable story brings Proverbs 14:7 to mind — Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge,” and also Proverbs 17:7 — Fine speech is not becoming to a fool; still less is false speech to a prince.”

Gene Robinson, a divorced Episcopalian who abandonded his wife and children and now lives with his homosexual consort, is a hugely controversial bishop in the Episcopal Church. His selection to be made a bishop, not to mention his antics before, during, and after that elevation, have riven his denomination and caused many Episcopalians to rethink their allegiance to a Church that can do something so blatantly wrong. I've personally met a number of Episcopal converts to the Catholic Church who identified Gene Robinson's selection as a bishop as the catalyst for their decision to investigate the claims of the Catholic Church. (Futher evidence that God can bring good out of evil.)

And our new Lider Maximo has invited him to say a prayer at the Lincoln Memorial during one of the inauguration events:

New Hampshire Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson will deliver the invocation at an event on Sunday to kick off inauguration festivities. His selection follows weeks of criticism from gay-rights groups over Obama's decision to have the Rev. Rick Warren give the invocation at his Jan. 20 inauguration. Warren had backed a recent ballot measure banning same-sex marriage in his home state of California.

Robinson has said he was stung by Warren's selection, but still believes Obama will be the most supportive president ever for gay-rights causes. "There's no question in my mind that he is the president who understands our issues and comes out of a background knowing what it's like to be discriminated against because of who you are," Robinson said Monday. "I think for the first time in a very long time we'll have a friend in the White House." (source)

The “we” he's speaking of here is the homosexual/gay lobby. And I'm afraid that, as wrong as Gene Robinson is about so many things, he's right about that last point. Time will surely tell.
