Gay Anglicans

Related to an article in First Things:

Yes, why should we not look at gay Anglicans as a phrase that is somewhat missing the point, as we would with white Anglicans, or tall Anglicans, or Nigerian Anglicans? To ask the question is to answer it.

Why should we regard feeling of alienation as the most important pastoral concern?

In both cases, we know that we do this because the surrounding culture insists that these are the important considerations. If we agreed with them on independent theological grounds, fine.  Yet we know this is not so.  The Church(es) have adopted this stance entirely on the basis of what is fashionable in the surrounding culture.
