A Brief Glimpse into the Sideshow that is General Convention
Robert Lundy of the AAC and I stood in the exhibit hall watching Massachusetts state representative Byron Rushing, a gay/transgender “rights” activist, do what amounted to a street-corner rally with a small gaggle of GenCon deputies at a corner booth sponsored by Integrity, complete with a small p.a. system, which I guess is a step up from a bullhorn, and more in keeping with Episcopal standards of good taste.
Fortunately, Robert was videotaping and uploaded this excerpt, so I can give you another glimpse into the culture of General Convention that is never seen by the folks back home. If you’re inclined to compartmentalize it as an anomaly, trust me - it wasn’t. For proof, just watch the people in the background, walking by as though nothing about this were out of the ordinary… because it wasn’t.
Watch this video - it’s only about 10 minutes long. In a nutshell, you’re watching a bunch of lunatics sit around and discuss their lunatic ideas. If you doubt me, note the question asked about getting the church out of the marriage business, and hang in there until the last few minutes, when you can observe the person manning the booth - “facilitating” as it were. The pantomime-cheerleading you see her doing is what she did the whole time - the entire half-hour or so Rushing spoke. These are the people who carried the day in Anaheim last month - the ones who now run the church at the national level. Note also the line of “reasoning,” such as it is, that Rushing uses: Entirely devoid of Christian theology, and representative of quite a large percentage of revisionists in the Episcopal Church.
