Bishop Bennison is in the Bible.
That’s right. Uhhh, huh. Yesss.
Bishop Charles E. Bennison Jr. is right here in the Bible:
*swings the Bible around in your face*
He has dug a pit and hollowed it out,
And has fallen into the hole which he made. Psalm 7:15
And I can mention at least five other similar verses. –Bennison is in there a lot! Can I hear an amen?
He digs the pit:
-Bennison is a big time supporter of Gene Robinson being made bishop. And he alienated the orthodox (and others) with his attacks on conservative parishes. Not to mention he’s an out-and-out heretic who says the church can rewrite the Bible.
He falls into it:
One result is his diocese is in financial trouble.
And another result came today: The Standing Committee of said Diocese of Pennslyvania has unanimously asked him to resign, retire, quit, go away, whateveryouwanttocallit, please GO! And it’s safe to say the committee isn’t exactly a conservative bastion.
Now whether he will go quietly is not yet known. He says he’s seeking God’s will. But he has shown he probably wouldn’t know God’s will if it kicked him in the rear . . . which it just has.
