Religious correctness gone mad

Dear oh dear… more kerfuffle in the Church of England over gay clergy.

Two thoughts:

(1) The idea that communion with a supreme, perfect being should be mediated by a ramshackle, politics-ridden human institution is even harder to take seriously than the idea that there actually is such a supreme, perfect being.

(2) It’s political correctness gone mad – or rather, religious correctness. Whenever you see a straight bishop – or for that matter a male bishop – you can be sure that he only got the job because of the preposterous quota system (100% straight male). There are probably plenty of women and gay men that could have done the job ten times as well.
