The first “gender-queer” priest in the Church of England hopes “normalizing it for children” will be a priority for the church.

Rev. Bingo Allison, a biological male who identifies as non-binary, said God was guiding the 36-year-old into a “new truth” about gender identity, according to an interview with a British newspaper. 

Allison, who has a wife and three children, told the Liverpool Echo that a late-night study of Genesis 1:27 and its language of “maleness to femaleness” led to what Allison called a “deepening spiritual experience.”

In the NIV, Genesis 1:27 reads: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

“I properly felt God was guiding me into this new truth about myself,” Allison was quoted as saying. “One of the things that has kept with my ministry ever since is that transition and coming out can and should be a spiritual experience, as well as an emotional and social and sometimes physical one. 

“There is something beautiful about growing into who we were created to be and growing into our authentic selves.”

After taking on a new identity, Allison was quoted as telling the Echo about plans to help make a “huge difference in normalizing it for children.”

  1. Bingo! Just wonderful. And the make up. And the twisting of Scripture. Just lovely.
    People such as myself are normal and we put Jesus first and we follow His and the rest of the teachings in the Bible, and Christians came to realise that people who are same sex attracted or have an issue with gender have always been Christians and sacrificed the issues we overcome for Christ and His glory.

    And then along comes the modern c of e.

    Just no centring of Jesus, His death on the cross and the resurrection and life everlasting. No mention of sacrifice, picking up one’s cross and following Christ.

    At least we can take comfort in the fact that the c of e will die out in 20 years if it keeps going in the direction it is going. God will not allow a fruitless branch to remain.
