    I am Episcopalian (the American branch of the Anglican church).

    I would be ROFL if it weren't so tragic.

    The places I live (Burlington, Boston, London, and now NY) and mostly travel, I am frequently insulated for long periods of time from the most vicious effects of homophobia. Then I travel somewhere like Nigeria, Russia, or India on business and you feel the full brunt of truly being set apart from the rest of society. You realize that 2/3 of the world isn't so understanding.

    It is quite an experience to go to church somewhere and have the local bishop very offhandedly make a remark that homosexuals should be put to death (Nigerian Archbishop Peter Akinola, when I was there two [three?] years ago).

    I love Colbert though. I don't always agree, but he is a great thorn in the side of the pompous, doctrinal, and self important.

    So this is the perfect place and time to call them out on it
    They want to split from the Church?
    Let them
    Let them form their own congregation
    Let them make their own bureaucracy
    Let them gather their own money
    Let them explain to their parishioners why they don't have the same resources

    One can't help but feel disdain for these "Gay" Bishops. They are doing damage to the Church of England, for their own selfish wants, and needs. Things they should of put aside for the priesthood, may they be gay or str8.

    These two Bishops held their very own thanks giving chuch service, in a Church of England, to celebrate their union; it was against all the rules, but do they care of the long term damage they have done to this institution, for their own self gratification.

    The Church of England is one of the few religions to practice equity. They not only allow gay priests, but gay Bishops too. As well now women Bishops. It's head is also a Queen, whom also happens to be My Head of State.

    I'm actually quite surprised to read this. This is not an attempt to break up the Anglican church, it is ONCE AGAIN a fight for civil rights! It is not a selfish want, and it is not something to be put aside for the priesthood. If Anglican clergy are allowed to marry, the marriage of two men who are clergy should be allowed as well. This is a question of right or wrong and whether or not we truly believe that homosexuality is how we were created or a choice. The world needs to be awakened to the reality of the situation- we are who we are and we were created this way. We should no longer be punished and ostracized for not fitting into the norm.

    And, speaking as a Catholic, if damage (change?) needs to occur to our faith-systems, so be it if that damage brings forth equality and the humanization of all kinds of people.
