“Homosexual” bishop will not use bible at Obama inauguration


This makes perfect sense. This bishop obviously disdains the bible because it teaches against the very lifestyle this bishop wants to embrace. It is no big surprise therefore that he would not deem it necessary to use it to offer up a prayer to whatever god he has decided to follow.

Robinson offered these encouraging words when he said his prayer would be reflective of the times, “I think these are sober and difficult times that we are facing, therefore he won’t be offering a happy clappy prayer. WHY PRAY AT ALL THEN IF YOU EXPECT THINGS TO ONLY GET WORSE?

BEAM ME UP the world has gone mad!

Associated Press smallCONCORD, N.H. – The first openly homosexual Episcopal bishop will offer a prayer at the Lincoln Memorial at an inaugural event for president-elect Barack Obama.

Robinson, 61, said both Obama and vice president-elect Joe Biden will attend the event, and Obama is expected to speak. As for himself, Robinson said he doesn’t yet know what he’ll say, but he knows he won’t use a Bible.

“While that is a holy and sacred text to me, it is not for many Americans,” Robinson said. “I will be careful not to be especially Christian in my prayer. This is a prayer for the whole nation.”

Robinson said his prayer will be reflective of the times. “I think these are sober and difficult times that we are facing,” he said. “It won’t be a happy, clappy prayer.”

Robinson’s 2003 consecration has divided the Episcopal Church in the United States and abroad.
