New Scottish Primus Gives Lie to Immutability of Sexual Orientation

The myth of homosexuality being “innate and immutable” got its biggest exposure as myth and pushback when the new Primus of Scotland, Bishop Mark Strange, admitted he was once in love with a man, but is now married, with three kids, to a woman. The Scottish Episcopal Church then went on to become the first major UK church to permit homosexual marriage with his support, without seeing the irony that change is possible.

The Anglican Communion, including and especially provinces like The Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church of Canada, The Scottish Episcopal Church, Wales and (inevitably) the Church of England, will finally have to admit that ‘born that way, stay that way’ is a myth and a lie. A leading primate has now publicly admitted it is not true.

Of course, some gay activists will probably yell and scream that he was not really gay at all, but that argument won’t wash. Bishop Strange publicly admitted he loved a man, but then fell in love with a woman.

A recent headline in USA Today recently challenged the prevailing zeitgeist announcing, “‘Born this way’? It’s way more complicated than that.'” Indeed, it is. Some gay activists now admit that sexuality is fluid.

“Getting America to believe that people are born gay — that it’s not something that can be chosen or ever changed — has been central to the fight for gay rights. If someone can’t help being gay any more than they can help the color of their skin, the logic goes, denying them rights is wrong. But many members of the LGBTQ community reject this narrative, saying it only benefits people who feel their sexuality and gender are fixed rather than fluid, and questioning why the dignity of gay people should rest on the notion that they were gay from their very first breath.”
The Church of England this week decided at its Synod to kick the can down the road on the issue of full inclusion and acceptance of homosexuality and homosexual marriage calling for more working groups to examine the issue. The archbishops said a “radical new Christian inclusion” is needed in the church” along with “a proper 21st-century understanding of being human and being sexual”.

But Alan Wilson, the bishop of Buckingham, accused his bishop colleagues of “well-meaning temporizing waffle.”
