Step forward, 'Bishop Pete Broadbent.
'Call me Pete' is the epitomy of the so-called 'trendy' bishop who is in fact, a deeply conservative, anti-gay voice within the church. I interpret his views are homophobia, through and through, and indeed, his sour and personally abusive emails which he sent to me a few years back helped me to see the church for what it really is.
Broadbent is exceptionally unpopular. He was once a Labour councillor in Islington at a time when revealing his anti-gay views would have been political suicide. Choosing to climb the greasy ladder of the church hierarchy instead, he switched his allegiance to the evangelicals and has since been a prominent spokesperson for the homophobic current rules within the church
TEC in the USA have agreed that there should be no bar placed on gay and lesbian people in relationships. Good for them. Broadbent has been one of those who has condemned them.
Well, what's new This man still has the temerity to call himself a socialist. he wouldn't know socialism if it crawled up his arse.....maybe its that he needs!
Shit of the week, Pete Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden - a true representative of the contemporary church and all it stands for.
Recommendation - ditch Broadbent and his putrid band of imaginary-friend bigots.
