"I have made a decision. I will no longer debate the issue of homosexuality in the church with anyone."

Those arguments are no longer worthy of my time or energy.'
"Listen up: God isn't Santa"
says a retired bishop of the U.S. Episcopal Church. The basis of prayer has always seemed like a paradox to me. I'm glad to see that John Shelby Spong agrees.
