For the benefit of those newer to this site than myself, let me cite Leviticus 18. 22 which is most often used as justification for Christian opposition to homosexuality:

"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." KJB

Of course other "abominations" include eating shellfish and wearing clothes of mixed fibres. Anyone collecting sticks on the Sabbath is worthy of stoning to death. And "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" Exodus 22. 18. Among other good advice! All no doubt are unfailingly obeyed by all Christians. I would hope that the ABoC, Rowan (backwards) Williams, or the Bishop of Leicester never consider eating the odd prawn cocktail. Since the CoE version of hell is much milder than the hellfire guys, it seems to be more of a warm bath than the lake of fire. (You just never get to see the 3 Old Boys upstairs, and have the eternal opportunity of fawning over them).

Yes these CoE clerics certainly have a lot to teach us about stupidity. As Marx put in in the 1st Preface to Capital, the CoE would rather part with 38 of its 39 Articles than part with 1/39 of its income! How true!
