The Bible is pretty darn clear: God created two human sexes, labeling them as male and female. "Male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27). One would expect that a vicar of a Christian church grounded in Biblical scripture would accept God's foundational creations, but Bingo Allison (yes, that's his real name) knows better. The "gender-queer" vicar says that his epiphany came when he was reading Genesis, at which time he concluded that God intended sexual fluidity.

On reforming the Church. What is of particular interest, because it applies to Christian communities in every age and place, is the interaction which the apostle Paul portrays between the church and the gospel. He shows how the gospel creates the church and the church spreads the gospel, and how the gospel shapes the church, as the church seeks to live a life that is worthy of the gospel. --- John R.W. Stott

CofE: We remain a fairly top-heavy Church with an annual budget of over $50 million. There was a move to work towards addressing this and a close vote followed. Sadly, the amendment to work toward shrinking our budget for future years did not pass, but I hope our voice was heard. We cannot continue to budget for the Church we were 20 years ago.
