Well here we have it, a retired bishop (John Shelby Spong) who believes Paul was a repressed homosexual. Liberalism is splitting the church and seems to be winning.
Bishop Believes Paul of Tarsus was a Repressed Homosexual
Who is Bishop John Shelby Spong?
John Shelby "Jack" Spong (born June 16, 1931) is a retired American bishop of the Episcopal Church. He was formerly the Bishop of Newark (based in Newark, New Jersey). He is a liberal Christian theologian, religion commentator and author. He calls for a fundamental rethinking of Christian belief away from theism and from traditional doctrines.

Uncomfortable Conservative Wriggling at Gay Theory
Conservative Christian, James White, looks visibly uncomfortable whilst Bishop John Shelby Spong presents his personal views on Paul. The irony is that this bishop uses personal interpretations of the Bible, similar to the conservative Christians who reject hijab (head covering) despite it being a clear teaching of the New Testament – these personal reinterpretations infuriate Muslims. Speaking of Christians infuriating Muslims by distorting the Bible to reflect their liberal views; Christians have began to reject the clear hand-chopping ruling within Deuteronomy by absurdly using personal reinterpretation to interpret it as meaning chopping off pubic hair rather than the hand!
This is what you get when you have the church full of lovey-dovey Christians; Christians rejecting the head covering, Christians rejecting the Old Testament laws, people claiming Paul was gay etc etc.
Was Paul gay? No.
There is no evidence of Paul being homosexual (gay). The bishop, John Shelby Spong, simply churns out his personal interpretations of the Bible and comes to the liberal belief that Paul was a homosexual. His views are unfounded and simply reflect his fanciful mind. We must remember, bishop Spong believes Paul to be gay, that’s to say he does not consider it to be a fact.
Perhaps the bigoted Christians who busy themselves in propagandizing against Muslims and Islam would like to spend time in refuting the liberal falsehoods emanating from churches…or do they not mind as long as these falsehoods catch fish for the church?
