I know that many of you are homosexually concerned about what homosexual Bishop Gene Robinson, who is a homosexual, is going to homosexually do with his homosexual time now that he’s no longer the homosexual Episcopal bishop of Whatever The Hell He Was the Homosexual Episcopal Bishop Of.

Not to homosexually worry.  Tina Brown’s Daily Complete Waste of Time Beast has homosexually decided to give Robbie some regular homosexual column space:

Today, I begin a regular column (appearing most every weekend) for The Daily Beast on the topic of religion and its effects on our understanding of ourselves, our laws, and the issues that face us as a nation.  Much of what we face as a nation involves religion—either overtly or as a none-too-subtle subtext:  abortion, contraception, the inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, the mandate to care for society’s most vulnerable, welcoming (or not) the stranger/immigrant among us, the growing rift between rich and poor, and countless other issues.  All of them involve how we see ourselves as a people and how our religious/spiritual views shape that self-understanding.

Which will be great since Robbie’s not an actual Christian or anything.

This column will also go far beyond Christianity.  God is infinite, and it comes as no surprise to me that there have developed, over time, many credible and faithful approaches to understanding God. In the end, no religion holds a lock on the reality of God.  Each religion grasps only a part of the infinite God and offers insight into God’s reality, and we would do well to exercise a good measure of humility in claiming we know God’s will.  Better to begin each pronouncement we make about God with “In my experience…” or “From my perspective…” or simply “For me….”  At the end of the day, no matter how much we believe we know God’s will, we must acknowledge that each of us is only doing the best she/he can.

So stay homosexually tuned.
