Proof again that Jim McGreevey knew exactly what he was doing when announced to the world that he was a "gay American" after it was found that he allegedly hired his male lover threatened to bring a sexual harassment suit against him while he was governor of New Jersey. We all know that modern-day progressives, in their continual attempts to bash Christianity, want to do away with traditional values and institutions for their own nihilistic desires. No matter what depraved activity they engage in, no one, especially Christians should pass judgment on them. We should only accept, and integrate them into every aspect of our lives. Yet, Jim McGreevey has played this crowd so expertly to the point that his infidelities have been forgotten, he’s gotten a load of sympathy from the loons on the Left, been granted joint custody of his daughter and now the "mamby-pamby" ideology that passes for "Christianity" today will now accept him as a priest despite the many wrongs he committed against the state, his religion and his ex-wife. This is the world we live in folks and sadly the Jim McGreevey’s of the world continue to come out on top.
NEWARK, N.J. -- James E. McGreevey, the nation's first openly gay governor, told NewsChannel 4 on Wednesday that he is entering a seminary amid reports that he wants to become an Episcopal priest.
McGreevey has applied to the General Theological Seminary in Manhattan.
Friends of the former governor told NewsChannel 4's Brian Thompson that McGreevey has wanted to enter the priesthood since his days in high school, college, and even law school. Now, the friends said, McGreevey has the freedom to do it.
The governor's friends added that once McGreevey finishes the four-year ordination process, he hopes to find a parish -- perhaps in an inner-city neighborhood, where he can help children or the poor.
McGreevey has commented that being a religious leader will not only allow him to help others, but will be good for his soul as well, friends of the former governor said.
