Ms. Joan Oliver has already and with excellent proficiency outlined some of the most significant shortcomings in Mr Haxby's article.
Let me just add that as long as the Episcopal Church and any others who claim to be serving Christ continue in this abomination, they stand outside of God's grace and light.
Furthermore, as Paul states in Romans chapter 1, all who condone this sinful behavior are equally condemned. As shepards of the flock they also stand guilty of attempting to lead the flock astray into deviant teachings. Peter addresses this destructiveness in his second letter (2 Peter chapter 2).
As Peter declares in verse 19 of the passage, "while they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption."
