Re: "As a member of the US Episcopal church and the son of a rector, I can firmly say that the Episcopal church does not encourage homosexual activities, it takes a stance of tolerance in extending the gospel to all people."

Tolerance to the point of openly contradicting your point about what the ECUSA encourages and what it discourages. I WAS Episcopalian for 43 years and I never heard a sermon advising against a homosexual lifestyle. It is difficult to take you seriously. It is your sort of fussy feel good, "I'm moderate" stand that got the ECUSA in this pickle in the first place but as usual the "moderates" have all sorts of complaints against those who stand firm in their faith while they ignore the rampant militantism of the Left. You my friend are very much a part of the problem. That or you are shilling for the Left.

The church was obviously divided on the issue seeing the controversy it caused during the convention. I happen to know several people who were in a church in Montgomery that split, with the rector leading the party leading the church
