The new gay bishop

So, according to the BBC, one of the many organisations reporting the catastrophe (here),
US Anglican leaders have confirmed the election of their first openly gay bishop in a controversial vote that threatens to divide the Church worldwide.
This is a tragedy. I don’t care what Gene Robinson does consensually in the bedroom. But I do care about the numbers of churches and bishops in the World. So, we’ve got another bishop – that’s taking us further away from the optimum number (zero).

What’s more, a schism within the Anglican Church will give us yet another faith community. (Optimum number also zero.) Aargh!
