One more reason to be concerned about the ELCA's relationship to TEC. 

In a interesting article by Ruth Gledhill in the TimesOnline, the Rt Rev Gene Robinson essentially claims that the Anglican Church of England would be essentially shut down without its gay clergy.  You can find the article here:  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article2155148.ece.

More of interest to me is how Robinson states in the online posted interview that "One day when I was ranting and raving about how much of the Nicene Creed I didn’t believe, he said ‘well, when you’re in church, just say the parts of the creed you do agree with. Be silent for the others. We’re not asking you do so something against your integrity’. And again I thought whew, that’s what one would hope for from a religion – honesty and integrity."  You can find the online interview here:  http://timescolumns.typepad.com/gledhill/2007/07/cofe-would-shut.html.

In my view, we are known by the company we keep.  Years ago, I originally thought our relationship with the TEC was a good thing.  I know believe it was wrong.

As a side note, I also recommend reading "Get Religion" http://www.getreligion.org/ as a great source of news reports on religion.

There's an old saying that goes something like this, 'Always be nice to the Piscies, afterall, look what God gives them for bishops'.
