The royal family is not messing around!

The Church of England has suspended one of it's own after a bishop made "deeply offensive" comments in regards to the upcoming marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton

Rt Rev Pete Broadbent reportedly posted on his Facebook that he thought their marriage would only seven years at best and then called the the Royal Family "philanderers" in general.

BIG mistake!

No sooner did he press "send" did the church become aware of his slander and quickly swooped in to deal with the situation. The Bishop of London told the press that Bishop Broadbent was promptly asked to withdraw from public ministry until further notice. He has complied.

He then released a statement apologizing for his remarks, conveying his "sincere regrets" to the Prince of Wales and to Prince William and Miss Middleton for the "distress" caused by comments.

Wow! Watch yourself other haters! This could happen to you!

Openly Gay Megachurch Pastor Talks More About Coming Out Of The Closet!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

As we've reported, Jim Swilley, a Bishop of a Georgia megachurch, came out as a homosexual man to his congregation, in response to the string of suicides in gay youth happening all over the country.

He recently sat down to discuss his decision to come out with CNN's Don Lemon, and opened up about being married to a woman, talking to his children about his sexual preference, and what it actually says in the Scriptures about homosexuality.

Check out the fascinating interview (above)!

We cannot thank this man enough for his incredible bravery.

The sad reality is that there's most likely been an unbelievable backlash from the church, but we hope he can keep in mind what an incredibly powerful and selfless thing he's done for so many confused individuals out there!
