3:12 PM Here’s the Legacy Campaign prayer request for today: “Praise God that He wil give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).” Mark Alexander, a fifth-generation Episcopalian, offers a comprehensive case against the election of a gay bishop last week. One little snippet:

Homosexual advocacy groups often rebut dissenters by claiming they are pharisaical, intolerant and judgmental — accusations which serve only to preclude discussing this issue consequentially. Those who apply such labels do so only as a means of arresting discourse. Disagreement with homosexual advocates’ social agendas has no direct correlation with one’s capacity to love or have compassion for others. Nor is such dissent necessarily related to judgment, which is God’s alone. Rather, it is about discernment between right and wrong, and obedience to objective truth rather than the cult of subjective relativism popularly justified under the contemporary aegis of “tolerance” and “diversity.”
