Looks like a Mamas and Papas tribute band to me - without the catchy melodies.

I think Peter is saying something more like: If the church doesn't do anything to present/defend/support traditional sexual morality as a viable option, we will all slouch towards the default position (by human nature) of serving ourselves - which, as the Bible teaches us, never leads to a happy ending.

Isn't there a "technical" reason for this - that in their role as clergy they shouldn't be partnered (I'm assuming 'partnered' means something else/more than very good friends) in the first place?

Whether or not individuals can talk about their personal situations openly, their voice is still heard in endless general debates about sexuality. Or does 'listening' imply (as with Mary Glasspool and Gene whatshisname) a subtle shift towards acceptance?

The one thing I find hard to believe is that LGBT people/groups within the church haven't been listened to.

The logic is fine but the use of it is unwarranted. Why mention rape and incest when the topic is homosexuality? The way people react to the comparison tells us that they find it degrading.

Adultery and polyamory are better comparisons - where adults make choices in complex situations based on powerful emotions - like love.

I don't know very much about Jeffrey John's story. Based on your summary I would say he was treated very badly - but I can also see why his "lack of repentance" might prompt others to question his 'reliability' .

Peter,

Mentioning rape, child abuse & murder is never going to work. Those sins clearly require a victim. Which is why they are still crimes as well as sins.

You got it right with the first sentence "It’s not that I hadn’t noticed yet another TEC Bishop who’s in a sexual relationship out of marriage". Mary Glasspool needs to be asked why she continues to have sex outside of marriage.
