I personally have no time whatsoever for religion. I find the notion that some higher being who created everything and who has the potential to solve all of humanity's problems with the wave of a hand, but who does not; warped, flawed and symptomatic of mass delusion. I see it for what it is. A lie of mammoth proportion, aiming to control massive groups of people and orchestrated always by a few greedy parasites down through the generations, who fear any genuine potential humankind has ever shown signs of developing or discovering.
Then of course there's this whole morality yarn that seems to run in tandem with religion. Don't steal, even if faced with famine. Don't kill, unless your cleric or faith has an enemy it has deemed a danger to you, your society, your country or church. In which case; butcher like a madman and know your deity shines love down upon you as you wade through the blood of your fellow species.
Whatever you do though, don't ever lie with someone of the same sex. It is your duty to have 'special fun' with members of the opposite sex and to breed like rabbits, spread disease, unwanted births and poverty all over the planet. In fact, if you folly or fool with members of your own sex and don't add to the pain of the entire life experience for everyone else, you're a tool of the devil, a demon, heretic and spawn of chaos itself. Not only will 'God' punish you for an eternity for your sinful and wicked life, before you ever meet him/her/it but - all of humanity has the 'God' given right to burn you at the stake, abuse and torture you daily, kick you about the streets and in even more backward parts of the world infected by collective faith, you can be stoned to death by a roadside. All for a loving god and the 'positive' message for humanity apparently carried within the words of religion.
Gene Robinson, an openly gay bishop in England has just been told he's not welcome to attend a conference for members of the cloth (in effect his workmates) because of his chosen sexuality. This of course is discrimination which in any other workplace would warrant large compensation payouts and apologies from all those exercising or participating in such ignorance. These particular people have appointed themselves the direct oracles of whatever 'God' is and they can discriminate, insult and lambast anyone they chose, free from recrimination or the threat of legal action and prison time for incitement to hate...
Whether this is right or wrong doesn't concern me because like I said earlier I find religion delusional, therefore everyone living by or within it equally deluded and not worth ever trying to spend time understanding. However, I am curious about why Gene Robinson ever joined such an institution which must have clearly been known to him to be opposed to his kind of choices? How could he have not known he'd be ostracised by them and why the hell would he, the clergy or the media ever assume anyone with insight could/would care about how it all works out? There again though; he is part of an industry that clearly employs staff who are contemptably ignorant, 'thick as shit' morons...
