Skip to comments.Fury as lesbian is chosen by Anglican Church to be a bishop
Posted on 12/05/2009 4:29:16 PM PST by Fenhalls555
The worldwide Anglican Church has been plunged into a fresh crisis after a lesbian was chosen as its second gay bishop.
In a move that will dismay the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, Canon Mary Glasspool was elected as an assistant bishop for the diocese of Los Angeles.
The Rev Rod Thomas, the leader of the conservative evangelical group Reform and a member of the General Synod, said: I feel deeply ashamed that this is happening in the Anglican Church.
I think a schism is absolutely inevitable.

Destined to happen.
Seems they’ve become the Church of Homosexuality
Apostate church, Falling away?
By the way, two out of the six candidates were homosexuals.
I am so thankful that the Catholic Church will NEVER allow this.
Satan is well in control.
More Political Correctness, I’m sure.
cant be, they follow the bible alone, everyone knows that you cant go wrong by following the bible alone, as was ‘originally’ intended, right?
Not much longer!
Destruction breeds creation, the Anglican Church is schismatic already all they are doing is continuing down their dark path.
Hmm...perhaps they are the modern version of Dan and the Golden Calf is Homosexuality.
Her rod and her staff will comfort thee.
The Fury seemed to me, to be that they had appointed a 'female' gay bishop instead of 'male'.
Here is the sentence I refer to.
"The worldwide Anglican Church has been plunged into a fresh crisis after a lesbian was chosen as its second gay bishop"
Just TEC (The Episcopal Church) up to its old antics. No need to ping either Huber or myself. This is not traditional Anglicanism.
The Episcopal Church can only be called that if you are willing to use a secular definition of “church”. A real Christian church prays for the souls of Episcopalians, of which the Episcopal church has lost sight.
At first glance, I thought it read “Furry lesbian is chosen by Anglican Church to be a bishop”. I had to click, and then my eyes comprehended the real headline.
What is this inevitable business. The schism should have already happened. It is time for those who love the Lord, and take their Bible seriously, to leave. They should have left decades ago.
The list is no longer pinged to TEC-only news (but if this finally moves the wwAC into action, that might be news).
I thought it said, “Furry As$ Lesbian...” LOL.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Imagine that: an apostate denomination does apostate things. Who could have predicted it? You know, besides everybody?
Such a scene. “Just because we don’t believe in anything,” sputtered the Rt. Hon. Rev. Hengest Cornfustist, “doesn’t mean we can believe in... well, just anything!”
Satan will not win.
I did the same thing.
But does she meet the Biblical standard of being the husband of one wife?
They have indeed!
I am so thankful that the Catholic Church will NEVER allow this.
The Catholic Church wouldn’t allow women, but has already had at least one homosexual bishop (Weakland) although since that didn’t turn out so well, presumably they won’t go there again.
No they won't. But, unfortunately they are more than willing to tolerate homosexual priests and bishops so long as their sexual activities do not rise into public view. And, even then, they will likely tuck them away somewhere until things blow over.
However, a solution for both may be at hand. Send all the homosexual clergy over to the Episcopal Church, and welcome all of the heterosexual clergy of the Episcopal Church into the Catholic Communion. Both will be better off for it and happier to boot. This is especially true for those going to the Episcopal Church where a belief in God is not required.
Let me rephrase (since humans in the Church are sinners.....some worse than others). The Teaching of the Church will NEVER condone homosexual sex. Period.
It will also never condone adultery for the married.
Sin is sin ....and always will be. This is why we should pray for the Church daily.
Even under the new law...
In full revolt over Romans 1
Lol ,,, these splits and divisions are all schisms from the one true Church established by Christ.
Please freepmail me if you want on/off this list
Do you see my point now?
That's an interesting question. I'm not up on lesbianism but would think that one of the pair would be the "husband" and the other the "wife" and if this "Bishop" plays the wife part, that would disqualify her right there.
and they wonder why Anglicans are flocking back to the Catholic Church? well, DUH...
TEC is destined to be the dyke and fag church — nothing more, nothing less. With a few Communists hanging on for the ride.
I thought the Metropolitan Church of Universalist Unitarians and Secular Something-or-Others had a corner on that one.
These people have lost their reason.
No, I do not. The Anglican Church doesn’t give a rat’s rear end about scripture, so why should I be surprised?
Besides, what guarantee do you have that the Magisterium won’t ‘unfold’ the idea of loving one another to include allowing homosexuality? The principle is the same - abandon scripture, which doesn’t change, and anything goes.
There was a time all Protestants were destined to burn in hell, until Vatican 2 decided that maybe some Protestants just didn’t understand the Pope’s authority, and were unwitting Christians outside the Catholic Church’s full fellowship.
The evolving doctrine of the Catholic Church allows most anything to happen in the future, depending on what seed the Magisterium decides is ready to blossom. And given the number of gay priests, are you REALLY certain that openly gay priests won’t someday bloom?
Wasn’t it Chesterton who said something to the effect that when people reject God, they lose their reason (common sense)?
From Leviticus to the Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, God has been consistent about how He felt about homosexuality. But it fits into a nutshell right here in Corinthians.
1 Cor. 6:9-10, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
The Word is clear. Unrepentant (practicing) homosexuals who die in their sin, GO TO HELL. They can go to church, they can call themselves a Christian...but if they are practicing homosexuals when they die—they will spend eternity in Hell.
This passage lists a number of sins that offer the same consequences for unrepentance. An unrepentant thief goes straight to hell as well.
BUT, no other sin listed in that passage has a number of followers out to forcibly legalize their sin-calling sin a civil right.
When Jesus stopped the stoning of the adulteress, He told her to. “Go and sin no more.” Repentance doesn’t mean perfection, or a lack of struggle...The sin must stop! If a gay or lesbian isn’t even attempting to stop the sin-They will burn: end of story.
The Bible is not a politically correct document. God doesnt care about the opinions of kings or pop culture. The Bible is Gods divine revelation to man. A person does not get to pick and chose which of Gods Words he wants to believe. Its all or nothing. Being a fundamentalist is believing that God meant what He said.
The bottom line is this: Jesus can transform you into a new being. If He can take a drunkard from this list and give that person the strength to throw off the chains of addiction, so God can transform the homosexual. Its not by your strength, but by His.
It is amazing how a “Christian” church does not believe what is unambiguously printed in every translation of God’s word. When in doubt or when you start to feel sorry for the exclusion of homos read Romans chapter 1.
Hey NYER I look this way if some of member of Conservative part of the church want hook up with the Cathoics fine with me
That of our Lord. The Church is Christ's bride (Ephesians 5:29) and has "no spot, wrinkle or blemish" (Ephesians 5:27). Christ also stated that the gates of Hell will not prevail against His Church (Matthew 16:18) so how can the Church commit error? Scripture is pretty straightforward about the Church's role in salvation, Its authority and Its organization. It's all a matter of deductive reasoning, correct interpretation and pure logic.
So I fled to Ausgberg instead of crossing the Tiber. I became a Lutheran of the Missouri Synod.
In North America it has already happened and is pretty much over. The rest of the world-wide Anglican Communion, being a rather loose (and non-binding) association, has as yet not fully awakened/responded to this. And so they are now the ones sitting in the dock, from this Anglican's perspective.
It is possible to be an Anglican outside the wwAC. A concept difficult for Anglicans to accept.
