Our Lord told St. Catherine of Sienna that the sin of Sodom was so perverted and horrible that even the devil, after tempting the person to commit the crime, leaves the room as its commission is so detestable that even he cannot bear it.

Church of England??? Isn't it a Catholic dogma that The Church is one and Catholic (the one which alone recognizes pope as its governor on Earth in Jesus Christ's Name)? If a liar calls himself an honest man why would anyone of good will support his lie?

Also, "Church" (from Greek "Kyriakon") literally means "The Lord's house". The holy name "Church" should not be used for the wicked and the unholy which don't belong to The Church.

Word "homosexual" (which means "attracted to people of the same sex") is a neutral word (gay is even positive word) and due to that neutrality should not be used for any reason for such a great evil as is the sin of Sodom i.e. sodomy. Sodomite and sodomites are the only appropriate words for those wretches.

And Anglican Protestants don't have bishops. Those self-styled "Bishops" are no Bishops.

Even those validly consecrated as bishops but fallen into heresy or schism or both are permanently deprived of their order i.e. they are no bishops any more! Too see this read this breath-taking papal decree (point no. 3 regarding the stated deprivation of order) most of Catholics don't even know to exist: http://www.catholicresearch.org/Decrees/CumExApostolatusOfficio.html.

Hence there is no non-Catholic bishop i.e. there is no bishop without whole and inviolate Catholic faith.

According to the above papal decree "those validly consecrated as bishops but fallen into heresy or schism or both are permanently deprived of their order" is true only for Catholic bishops who fall.

Others illicitly but validly consecrated as bishops (e.g. Easterners who claim to be orthodox but are heterodox by denying the fullness of pope's authority in the whole Church, a matter of Christian faith) are deprived of their bishopric by the decree but not permanently. If they enter The Church (and retain Catholic faith) they can be restored to their bishopric.
