“I cannot tell, by examining these parallel liturgies, which tradition contains prayer to graven images. I cannot tell, by examining these liturgies, which ones allow the service to be led by a lesbian minister. In short, by looking at these liturgies, I cannot tell whether God accepts them as ‘acceptable worship’ or not. But whether or not God receives us in our offered worship is the central thing. In a line up of skeletons, I cannot tell which one was the tattooed biker moll and which one was the Junior Miss princess” (Against the Church, pp. 14-15).
