    Episcopal Vote Reopens a Door to Gay Bishops

    I don't know much about this denomination in particular, but it's great news, IMO. Surprising too, considering they attempted a moratorium 3 years ago.

    Why? You know anything about christianity and what church leaders are supposed to represent?

    Considering the number of denominations, I'm not sure many Christians agree much on what Christianity is other than a belief that Jesus is the son of God.

    Paul's statements in the NT are interpreted as saying that homosexuality is sinful, though many Christians also cite the OT.

    That is the sad truth. Fortunately, there are those that do know and have their priorities straight, and this episcopal church has lost its way.
