There was a time when churches and the priests within them at least pretended to preach the world of God rather than outright calling for people to indulge in sin. But those days are apparently past, at least in the Woke West, and now “priests” whose lifestyles are built around sinful behaviors are encouraging even the young to indulge in sin.
Such is the case in the very woke Church of England, where the church’s first openly “gender queer priest” is aiming to “normalize” LGBTQ+ behaviors in children.
That would be Rev. Bingo Allison. Allison is a Church of England priest in the Diocese of Liverpool. Allison identifies as “gender-queer”, using “they/them” pronouns. Predictably, Allison is using “their” position in the Church of England to push that on the youth, saying in an interview with the Liverpool Echo:
“I try to get involved in, not just in my religious work but outside it, with the local secular LGBT youth groups.”
“One of the biggest things is just being a visual representation in my community and going into schools, doing assemblies and making a huge difference in normalizing it for children. When I’m wearing my collar it lets children know that is OK and that there is a place in church and the outside world for people like me.”
Fox News Digital, adding more details about Allison, reported:
Allison, who claims to be the first non-binary gender-queer priest in England’s established church, also claimed to have discovered a biblical basis for gender fluidity during a late-night reading of Genesis 1:27, which recounts how God created humans male and female.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” reads the verse, which Allison maintained expresses “maleness to femaleness” instead of men and women.
Allison described the revelation as “a deepening spiritual experience” by which God “was guiding me into this new truth about myself.”
Allison added, in the Liverpool Echo interview:
“One of the things that has kept with my ministry ever since is that transition and coming out can and should be a spiritual experience, as well as an emotional and social and sometimes physical one. There is something beautiful about growing into who we were created to be and growing into our authentic selves.”
Allison also said that the “gender queer” identity came after moving away from the more “conservative” (read: real) form of Christianity, saying “It was a lot harder than I thought having come out to myself to then remain in the closet. There were definitely lots of times before when I kind of questioned my identity but growing up in a more conservative form of Christianity meant that it was just so far beyond my imagination.”
