The Mad One points us to Dr. Jensen's recent statement for an article in the Sydney Morning Herald:
...Archbishop Jensen is one of the leaders of 1000 conservative churchmen from 17 Anglican provinces who will gather at the Jerusalem Global Anglican Futures Conference this month. Mainly from Africa, the Middle East and Asia, they are united on one principal issue: hostility to homosexuality.Did you get that? The current unpleasantness is not about a fear of gay cooties. It is about defending the notion that God runs the church through the bible. Well, imagine that.
But Archbishop Jensen argues: "This dispute is not really about homosexuality. It's really about authority and who runs the church. And fairly clearly, to most of the rest of us, God runs the church through the Bible"...
What Dr. Jensen doesn't mention, however, is that it appears that there are only certain parts of the bible that God uses to "run the church." To understand what I'm getting at, I present you an oldie but goldie that Dan pointed to on Wednesday (two days before Dr. Jensen's recent words were published I might add...a timely reminder, Dan!):
Now you'll have to excuse me. I've got a disobedient son that I need to stone to death.
