The Divorce That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Gene and his husband in happier times.

Only the beginning, folks, only the beginning: Gene Robinson, the first openly gay bishop in the US Episcopal Church, has announced he is divorcing his partner of 25 years. That's Strike #2! for Gene:
"Bishop Robinson, 66, had previously been married to a woman with whom he had two children." Robinson wrote. “Love can endure, even if a marriage cannot.”

Your Say

We find ourselves enveloped or circumscribed by those of a narcissistic personality disorder.

This is a personality disorder in which a person is excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity, mentally unable to see the destructive damage they are causing to themselves and to others in the process.

Shysters make profit from these creatures through prescriptions and procedures and promotions. The more they are indulged the more proliferant they become.

It is not the act, as no sane person can argue it's favor, but rather the fact, that they have your attention, even if they have your ire, they at least have you in some form. In effect, they pwn you, to what degree is your choice.

Male homosexuals have never had much interest in marriage or domesticity. The real push behind the same sex marriage campaign is to get non-homosexuals to think about male homosexuals in terms other than what they do to each other, which is really pretty disgusting. Once the battle is over the male homosexuals will stop getting married, and the few who have married will divorce.

Female homosexuals will get married and will stay married, as they are far more interested in domesticity than sex.

When this story first broke years ago, a blogger, I'm not sure which one, said that the main thing that bothered him about the case had nothing to do with the "gay angle". What bothered him is that the Bishop broke up his family, abandoned his wife and put his children through all that turmoil just because he wanted to go have sex with someone else. The fact that people were giving this guy standing ovations like he had actually done something great just added to the galling.

OOPS, correction. I didn't realize that was so long ago. It mustn't have been a blogger, maybe a radio host.

This puts an interesting perspective on the Bishop's "vows", whether related to matrimony, or anything else. An oath is only as strong as the person who keeps it.

(Plagiarism-ish)I didn't leave the church.(You know, the Episcopalian off shoot sect sub group, "practicing"... WHAT exactly?)
In "tolerance" for this "thinking", The Church left me.
Despite a pretty good history of Indulgences by my family, my father was excommunicated from the Catholic "Church" due to divorce/remarriage "irregularities".
Good on 'em!
Of course, those days are over.

Gay Marriage (male) will only be sustained when it is blessed by the First Church of the Holy Bathhouse.

Liberals trying to justify their perversion is in itself perverted.

I'm with Mumblix on this one. That alone disqualified him for the office of bishop.

But whose bishop has he been handling?

Strange how the gay bishop divorce story is not that compelling for the national media, compared to the gay bishop marriage story ...

Huh. 'Tis a puzzler.

In due time they will all be back in the closet and the feminists back in the kitchen. The pendulum swings and Elliott wave rules. We are at the end of the era of can't we all just get along, don't worry be happy, I'm ok you're ok we're all ok, and I feel your pain. There is a new "turn" coming to a town near you.

When the divorce is finalized who gets to keep the butt plug?

indy: wait until the Tribulation starts. (I reference the Book of Revelation chapter nine.) Actually the entire Book of Revelation gives us a preview.
