Is Christie Out of His Mind?

On one hand, we have the Governor Chris Christei – the Republican who tells everyone he’s not interested in running for the Presidency (at least not in 2012), is against homosexuality, who openly opposes “gay” marriage, and has just recently vetoed a bill passed by the New Jersey State Senate to legalize this “gay marriage,” opting for a public referendum. (Personally, I don’t like the term “gay marriage” – it’s just marriage; we don’t call it “straight marriage” or “bisexual marriage” for those who can marry today. Why do we need to call it “gay marriage” for the rest of us? But I digress.)



Gay Marriage



This is a subject I find to be of great importance – partly because I’m gay, yes; but mostly because I believe in the sanctity of human rights (not gay rights; human rights). And before you get all up in my face saying, “Well, DUH! Of course you believe in gay marriage because you’re GAY,” I’d just like to say that’s not entirely the case. There are actually a large number of gays who don’t believe in marriage, who aren’t fighting for it, and who couldn’t possibly care less about it. Thankfully, those numbers are decreasing as the years go by. And to say that every gay (in which I’m categorizing the entire LGBTQ society) is for gay marriage and gay rights would be akin to saying that every Caucasian fights for white supremacy; or that every Republican believes gay sex is identical to polygamy, incest, and man-on-dog sex (oh, wait – that’s only Rick Santorum).


Anglo-Catholic Traditions: Fit for the Dustbin


As promised, this is the second in a series of truthful postings about what’s really been happening at S. Clement’s Church, Philadelphia. This particular truth deals with the slow elimination of the Anglo-Catholic Traditions long held at S. Clement’s, and how most have been dismissed without any replacement at hand.  More



S. Clement’s Church, Philadelphia, which has long been called the hallmark of Anglo-Catholicism, has seen drastic changes lately in her life and worship. Unfortunately, it’s not an accidental or metamorphic change that’s been happening slowly over time, but rather, what appears to be a very strong-headed few who were never happy with the Anglo-Catholic traditions practiced at S. Clement’s and desired to change them from their first days stepping foot in the church rather than attending another parish that already offered what they were looking for. More
