Some Anglican clergymen are on the news right now talking about their objection to gay clergy and saying that they're just "following the message of the Gospels."

If anyone can point out where Jesus even mentioned homosexuality, let alone his objection to it, please do so, because even though I'm a lapsed-Catholic/agnostic and not a devout Christian, I'm getting very fed up of religious conservatives citing Christ as their reason for objecting to everything from gayness to abortion.

That's in Leviticus, though; and I'm sure these people eat shellfish...

Leviticus, indeed. I do think a member of the clergy who doesn't know the Gospels from the Old Testament should really fuck off back to divinity college and not come out til they've learned something, preferably humility.

Exactly. And they're the ones who, in my own lapsed-religion, complain about a-la-carte Catholicism (or Christianity in general)....

That's true, but I've seen and heard plenty of them having selective memories about what is and isn't mentioned. Depends on what cause they're charging off on their horses about at the time I suppose.
