Church Of England OKs Women Bishops

Church of England OKs Women Bishops

The Church of England today took a pretty large step into the 21st century, voting by a two-thirds majority to allow the ordination of women as bishops. It’s a reversal of a 2012 vote┬áthat failed by just six votes, notes┬áSky News, and cements the role of female leadership in an institution that has allowed women priests for two decades.

I Can’t Quite Put My Finger On What The Aerial View Of This Church Resembles

Aerial view of Christian Science church looks like a penis

Christian Scientists are not known for their sense of humor, but have a look at this bird’s-eye view of the Christian Science Society of Dixon, Illinois, and tell me that God isn’t laughing right about now. Furthermore, the congregation’s slogan is “rising up.” All of the jokes have already been made. I didn’t even have to do a damn thing. [via Gawker]

The suburbs of Minneapolis are a land of quiet cul-de-sacs, hot dish potlucks, and mostly conservative politics, but in light of a new amendment that seeks to add a gay marriage ban to the Minnesota constitution, these neighborhoods have become something a bit more unexpected: a sea of rainbow flags. And who’s leading the charge? Church ladies, of course!

As soon as the State Legislature voted to include this despicable amendment on the November ballot, Gwin Pratt, a senior pastor at St. Luke Presbyterian Church, sprang into action, brainstorming ways to fight it. One church member, Cindy Eyden, proposed a plan: what if they bought rainbow flags and handed them out to anyone who wanted one? Keep reading »

Church Gets Sexy With Adult Sex Ed Classes

“Adult” and “sex ed” are three words that sound terrible together at first glance. But lo and behold, O: The Oprah Magazine sat in on an adult sex ed class full of 40- to 60-somethings at the First Unitarian Church in Austin, TX, and one thing is for certain: bumbling teens aren’t the only ones with questions!

Unitarians are smart for realizing that learning about one’s sexuality is a lifelong pursuit. How to properly put on a condom and what to do about queefing preoccupy the young pups. New parents, an infertile couple, women who lost her breasts to mastectomies, and other grownups now realize that 45-minute lecture from the gym coach back in 10th grade left something to be desired!

Gay Marriage & Christianity: Not Always At Odds!

Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi just tied the knot last weekend officially making gay marriage trendhunter worthy. But according to Professor John Boswell, the former chairman of the history department at Yale University, gay marriage is an old-fashioned institution getting a new page in the history books. The Ivy League teacher has done extensive research on homosexuality throughout the ages and discovered that early Christians, including the Pope, were so cool with same-sex committed relationships, they even adorned their churches with frescoes of sweet man love. A painting found at St. Catherine’s Monastery in Mt. Sinai, Israel, depicts two early Christian Saints, St. Sergius and St. Bacchus, getting married back in the 4th Century, with Jesus as the best man. Accounts of their sainthood, up through the 10th Century New Testament, openly united and acknowledged them as “lovers.” But they’re just the tip of the gay Christian iceberg! Keep reading »

Men Are From Mars, Vicars Are From Venus

The Church of England just wrote another bible and this one is all about S-E-X. With 150,000 thousand divorces a year and even one of their own Bishop’s 25-year marriage breaking up, the Church decided to author a how-to guide about the “holy and wonderful” thing that takes two (at least). The book, entitled “Growing Together” offers advice for married couples on everything from turn-ons to sexy money issues. It also has saucy true stories! The Bishop of Croydon said, “There’s an assumption that church people are from a different planet. We’re not. We live in the real world and are trying to help people talk about things that often don’t get talked about.” It’s official, everyone loves to talk dirty and for about $15, you can hear what the Anglican Church has to say.

The Daily Squeeze: Lady On A Leash, Protests At Heath’s Funeral, And Sexy Church Billboards

  • A British woman is upset because she and her boyfriend weren’t allowed to board a bus – because she was being led around on a leash. Maybe she should keep the S&M in the bedroom. [Asylum]
  • Members of the Westboro Baptist Church plan to protest at Heath Ledger’s funeral, saying Heath’s role in Brokeback Mountain made him a “fag-enabler.” So nice of them to bring the doom, gloom, and total effing nuttiness to an already tragic affair. [Queerty]
  • A church in Jacksonville, FL, is using super sexy billboards to attract people to its series of sermons on sex in Christian life. “[God] wants us to have great sex, but he wants us to have it in his parameters,” the church’s pastor said. Like that time we boinked in the confessional? [Local6.com]
