"Stand Firm" is a Internet publisher of "Traditional Anglicism in America", host to Episcopalian Church web sites and location of interviews with The Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker Bishop of the Episcopalian Diocese of Fort Worth which voted November 15, 2008 to realign with the Argentineans Southern Cone, becoming the fourth such "traditional" diocese to do so in a long-running debate over gay relationships and other Issues.
In a recently published "Stand Firm" article Gene Robinson to Meet With Dallas Transgender Activists the lead paragraph linked this blogs press release announcing the progressive event "Dallas Transgender Advocates and Allies Wellcome Bishop Robinson" to language I have the unpleasant duty to edit when it appears on my blog.
These disrespectful and hateful comments by the "Stand Firm" readers have been left unedited and intact in close proximity to the the interview of Bishop Iker.
"Don’t give me links like that anymore! Geesh.... Had to look at strangely dressed women(?) and see a headline for queer news before I could get out. WARN ME.
I wasn’t ready to “bravely step forward” like Gene.... "]
"If Robinson is not a real Bishop as many would argue then no “border crossing” occured. To argue that a “border crossing” occured is to argue that Robinson IS a bishop which we all know is silly. He is just some low hanging fruit."
"And what’s absolutely amazing to me is that homosexuals and transgender folks actually consider themselves normal."
Kelli's note. "Stand Firm" stands alone.
