Skip to comments.Peter Toon on ”Peace and Justice” in the 1979 Prayer Book

Just before I was confirmed (with the REC rite), I noted that among the changes in the confirmation rite of the ECUSA 1979 BCP was adding to the Baptismal Covenant a pledge to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.
With peace and justice long being a code phrase much beloved of leftists, I slammed the change as adding a thinly veiled political agenda to the confirmation rite.
Now Peter Toon has dissected this change in the Baptismal Covenant and has come to similar conclusions.
