“I concluded that an active sexual relationship between two people of the same sex might therefore reflect the love of God in a way comparable to marriage, if and only if it had about it the same character of absolute covenanted faithfulness.”

The Young Fogey has nailed it in a commbox somewhere:
So… in the theology of the overclass there’s no objective truth because essentially the Mormons are right (but not on THAT, Lord, no!) that God’s revelation is progressive and contradicts past revelations...
They're Mormons! Now I get the attraction. Good Anglicans like Vicky Gene have been promised their own planet.
Cool! Where do I sign up?
Then I remembered that I have already written about how the Anglicans invented political correctness.
The problem, as always is that you can't both be in the room and not in the room at the same time.
Anglicanism invented political correctness.
Here's how it happened.
The nation's leaders abandoned the Faith when they repudiated the Church.
Having been torn from its foundations, the Faith slowly leaked away until it died out completely.
But nature abhors a vacuum and the devil can't resist an empty house, and moved right on in, animating the corpse which, somewhat gruesomely, continues to wear the ecclesiastical clothes and occupy the buildings, gambolling lewdly around, flopping its limp and rotting appendages in a grotesque parody of Christian worship.
This carried on until, about the beginning of the 20th century, that colossal slap-in-the-face epoch in which no one could maintain any delusions any more. Life without religion was tried, but found impossible, and we have ended up with what we have now, sex and personal gratification, nihilism and crushing indifference and the sudden exponential growth of the occult.
Oh, and pretty big rates of suicide, divorce, abortion, crime and spiritual emptiness.
That's because of what the headshrinkers like to call "cognitive dissonance"...Taken as a lifestyle choice, the refutation of the Logical Principle of Non Contradiction makes you go crazy. The dissonance builds up in the mind and the soul until it becomes like being permanently locked in a noisy room.
It makes you go crazy enough to think...really really...that you're going to get to rule your own planet.
