Yea, well, at least we have loads of other religious leaders on our side, right?

by Jeremy Hooper

   Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, the Anglican leader who'd been thought of as fairly accepting of gay and lesbians, has indicated to a Dutch newspaper that he thinks gays should "change" their "behaviors" if they wish to enter his Church. He's quoted as saying of his faith's acceptance of gays:

"We don't say 'Come in, and we ask no questions.' I do believe conversion means conversion of habits, behaviors, ideas, emotions."

So come on in, just remember to check the core of our being at the door. Ugh. With friends like this, who needs the "ex-gay" movement to demonize us in a falsely compassionate manner?
