I posted a related article earlier today. Absolutely stunning!
1) These people are going to have a lot of explaining to do when they are called to account.
2) They may think they are praying to some sort of Earth Goddess but the Bible makes it very clear. If you are not praying to God, then you are praying to Satan.
"For then we had plenty of food, and prospered, and saw no disaster. But since we left off making offerings to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have been consumed by the sword and by famine." And the women said, "When we made offerings to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, was it without our husbands' approval that we made cakes for her bearing her image and poured out drink offerings to her?"
There's no way God inspired such poor writing. I mean, this sounds like some 3rd grade English composition. How can such tripe be taken seriously?
Thanks for the link! I did not connect the two articles from the titles.
Fallen Anglican ping
Look Shrimp, you can join my "church" and not have to change your "religion".
Well, thanks for the ping. I'll bear it in mind!
Either they should believe their bible or not. Square peg, round hole and all that.
How soon do we see the explicit worship of Moloch?
I've never heard of this rite/eucharistic so I wonder what "Church's" or "Dioceses" practice it. Ron, they do this out your way?
Square peg, round hole apparently applies to our "Bishops" as well.
I pray for schism.
"liturgies/rites pertaining to: menstruation, menopause, conception, pregnancy, any form of pregnancy loss, childbirth, forms of leave taking, and many others."
ANY form of pregnancy loss? I'd bet anything they have a special rite for abortion, something the ECUSA wholeheartedly promotes. Wow this whole article is amazing - I knew the ECUSA was sick but not this sick.
The ECUSA is experiencing a Darwinian moment. External pressure and criticism needs to be racheted up to the loudest possible level.
Those who witness the travesty of the ECUSA will be called to account if the do nothing to stop them.
Wow, Wicca has now come to the Church for sure.
I've never heard of this. God knows what's going on in downtown Chicago, though. I should look it up on the Diocesean website.
The link for the Women's Eucharist gives a 404 from the server. The link for the Divorce liturgy works fine. Unfortunately.
Actually, the 1928 prayer book had a service for the "churching of women", a service that used to be performed after a woman had a baby that IIRC was a thanksgiving for a successful pregnancy and birth. So I see no reason not to have prayers for women going through pregnancy, birth, menopause, etc. Now, the content of those prayers is something else again.
I'm a former Wiccan converted to the Catholic Church and I can tell you for a fact, from the description in the text what they are doing is a pagan/wiccan ceremony. I did it dozens of times personally as a Wiccan.
You need to convert Da Shrimp, he still plays Dungeons and Dragons for real.
