The Episcopalians recently elected one Katharine Jefferts Schori as their leader. Besides being the first female leader, she's also pro-evolution and anti-homophobia:

Interviewed on CNN, Jefferts Schori was asked if it was a sin to be homosexual.

"I don't believe so. I believe that God creates us with different gifts. Each one of us comes into this world with a different collection of things that challenge us and things that give us joy and allow us to bless the world around us," she said. "Some people come into this world with affections ordered toward other people of the same gender and some people come into this world with affections directed at people of the other gender."

This naturally has gotten a bunch of fundies pissed; Ms. Spaulding lists several quotes from FreeRepublic.com. Beyond constantly invoking idiotic comparisons of homosexuality to bestiality and pedophilia, they include this gem of a quote:

I wonder how long until she throws out the other nine commandments.

I'd love to find out what this person thinks the decalogue comprises.
