Just when you thought that the venerable Church of England had slid off the abyss and into the icy void of deep space, up comes this. The shrinking denomination’s College of Bishops have formed a “reflection group on sexuality.” What will they see in the mirror?
|Giles Fraser and Aleister Crowley|
Perhaps they’ll see the famous Aleister Crowley lookalike, Rev. Cursitor Doom, popularly known as “Giles Fraser.”
|Nice Looking Sex Change, Rachel|
Then again, they might see Rachel “Heavy Metal” Mann, the curiously named trans Canon of Manchester Cathedral.
|The Bishop of Norwich|
Or maybe just themselves.
The official teaching of the Anglican Communion is that marriage is something that occurs between a man and a woman. Humans have always believed that, unless they’re channeling the artistic Emperor Nero. Perhaps the reflecting Divines will see his spirit in the mirror?
