    Do you know what a woman is? If so, you’re a ways ahead of the Church of England.During this month’s General Synod, Senior Bishop Rt Rev Robert Innes was asked by lay member Adam Kendry to clear any confusion:“What is the Church of England’s definition of a woman?”It turns out church officials were previously making mere assumptions. And the question isn’t any longer so simple.Courtesy of The Telegraph, the bishop’s written response:“There is no official definition, which reflects the fact that until fairly recently definitions of this kind were thought to be self-evident, as reflected in the marriage liturgy.”He called...

    WASHINGTON — An Anglican chaplain who was fired and reported to an anti-terrorism program for preaching Christian doctrine on sexual ethics during a chapel service is warning about the totalitarian ideologies actively at work in the West. At a breakout session at the International Religious Freedom Summit, a panel on “polite persecution” — a phrase coined by Pope Francis — assembled by The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, described how secular abortion and gender activists are gutting cherished freedoms in countries that have historically championed religious liberty. Often, religious persecution is state-sanctioned. This so-called polite kind of hostility is...
  • The Politicisation Of St Paul's Cathedral Melbourne

    St Paul's cathedral in Melbourne has a massive banner out the front saying "Let's fully welcome refugees." The progressive people feel so passionate on that issue that the cathedral of the Anglican Church is now politicised. The Australian Anglican Church is tearing itself apart over gay marriage. The inside of the cathedral has a massive globe named after the Greek goddess Gaia hanging above the altar. This has offended traditionalists but drawn large numbers of people to marvel at God's creation. I am all for freedom of speech and creativity in a bid to revive and sustain religion. But I...

    Today the United States Supreme Court ruled that “the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion,” overruling Roe v. Wade (1973). The decision will “return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives … to be resolved like most important questions in our democracy: by citizens trying to persuade one another and then voting.” In the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a five Justice majority of the Supreme Court overruled both Roe and the 1992 decision Planned Parenthood v. Casey.[1] The inherent value of human life is revealed in the Scriptures, and this biblical commitment...

    ROME — A group of Catholic and Anglican theologians has publicly called on the Vatican to review and overturn a papal document from 1896 that declared Anglican ordinations “absolutely null and utterly void.” “Where we once walked apart, we now walk together in friendship and love,” wrote members of the Malines Conversations Group after tracing the history of ecumenical agreements between the Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion and, especially, reviewing examples of collaboration and gestures of recognition. The judgment made by Pope Leo XIII in his apostolic letter “Apostolicae Curae” in 1896 “does not accord with the reality into...

    Pittsburg Post Gazette ^ | November 1, 2021 | Robin Capcara
    I was once again appalled to see an insulting, biased and unfunny cartoon by Steve Kelly on Oct. 29. Depicting a puppy trying to urinate on a picture of Dr. Anthony Fauci is the height of adolescent and hostile “humor.” Continuing to target the public face of the fight against COVID-19 is not just mean-spirited and uninformed but dangerous. It’s dangerous because making Dr. Fauci out to be some sort of bureaucratic bogeyman fuels conspiratorial anti-science, anti-government hysteria at a time when our country is still experiencing unnecessary illness and death at the hands of this deadly disease. We remain...

    The Church of Ireland is to complete its divestment from companies that extract fossil fuels by the end of this year. Companies where more than 10 percent of turnover is derived from fossil fuel extraction will be excluded from investments made by the Representative Church Body (RCB). […] The Church of Ireland said through its climate change policy, the RCB seeks to mitigate and lower the climate change impact within its investment portfolios and “has taken several steps in this regard over the past number of years”. This includes collaborative engagement, investments in wind and solar energy and forestry, the...

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Like many of you, I have been soberly watching the situation unfolding in Afghanistan. I know it has surfaced many emotions for people across the world, especially those who have personal connections with Afghanistan and the Afghan people. Whether justified or unjustified, war is always a tragic consequence of the Fall. While in war we can witness the greatness of human courage and selflessness, we also realize the depths of human sinfulness, as poet Robert Burns wrote, “man’s inhumanity to man.” Please join me in prayer for the people of Afghanistan, those Afghans and...

    Petertide — the days around the feast of St. Peter on June 29 — is traditionally one of the most joyful seasons for the Church of England, a time for ordination of new priests and deacons. But this year’s Petertide has been marred by what many have interpreted as an attack on the future of Anglican priesthood itself. As Britain’s national church prepared to gather for its General Synod, which begins Friday (July 9), one of its most senior clerics submitted a paper for discussion arguing that the future lies not with clergy in the pulpit, but with worshipping communities...

    Canadian churches, mostly Roman Catholic and Anglican and often historic, have been burned down or vandalised in remarkable numbers in recent days, as anger has been whipped up over the discovery of unmarked graved — often wrongly described as “mass graves” by the mainstream media — at the sites of former Indian Residential Schools; institutions typically run by churches which the government used to require First Nations children to attend, in what is now seen as a misguided effort to integrate them into the cultural mainstream. The schools date back to the 1800s, and at least some of the graves...

    The Church of England announced that it is going to begin a formal “discernment and decision-making” process "about a way forward for the church" in regards to its teachings on sex, sexuality and marriage. Church leaders are aiming to come to a conclusion on the long-debated issues by 2022. The announcement came with the launch of the "Living in Love and Faith" resources, which more than 40 people, led by the Bishop of Coventry Christopher Cocksworth, worked on for three years to help people participate in honest discussions, listen to life stories and understand each other’s views. Part of the...

    Conservative Christians are using religious liberty as a basis to oppress the marginalized as well as traumatize parents of children who identify as LGBTQ, according to a retired Episcopal Church bishop and a filmmaker. Retired New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson and filmmaker Daniel Karslake were hosted for a discussion by the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), an unofficial United Methodist LGBTQ caucus, on July 15. The bishop and the film producer equated God’s purposes with intersectional identity politics of the Left. Robinson was the first man openly in a same-sex partnership to be consecrated a bishop in the Episcopal Church and...

    The Church of England is “too white” while “Jesus was a black man”, according to the new Archbishop of York. Speaking to The Sunday Times, Stephen Cottrell praised the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, and said his inauguration this week as a white man replacing outgoing Archbishop John Sentamu — who is black — is “awkward” for the church. “The leadership of the Church of England is still too white, and I hope under my watch we’ll see further changes on that,” he said, asserting that the church has work to do “addressing the deep systemic issues of exclusion and...

    Worshippers should be extra mindful of their personal hygiene to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus, the Church of England has warned. The church has advised its congregations around the country to follow 'best-hygiene practices' at all services. Dr Brendan McCarthy, the church's health adviser, did not give any drastic new rules but used the coronavirus outbreak as a serious reminder to be hygienic. He said people with 'coughs and sneezes' should not drink wine from the 'Common Cup', should not dip bread into it, and should not shake others' hands during 'The Peace'.

    The church must find ways to “facilitate a respectful and protected space for all members of the society in so far as they do not breach the rights of others in terms of liberty and justice”, and this includes women’s rights to abortion, a senior Anglican cleric in Jamaica said here last night. “To deny a woman access to safe and legal abortion is clearly an affront to ethical health practices; respect for self-determination; and most of all, the woman’s right to life,” said the Very Reverend Father Sean Major-Campbell, Dean of Kingston and Rector of Christ Church in Vineyard...

    Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and Archbishop of York John Sentamu have apologized for a decree issued by the Church of England which said that only heterosexual married couples should have sex and that sex in gay or straight civil partnerships “falls short of God’s purpose for human beings according to scriptural teachings.” “We as Archbishops, alongside the bishops of the Church of England, apologize and take responsibility for releasing a statement last week which we acknowledge has jeopardised trust,” the archbishops said in a statement, according to Belfast Telegraph. “We are very sorry and recognize the division and hurt...

    Home at Last: Church of the Apostles Ready to Reach A New Community Thanks to David Harper, shepherd of 26 years; Nick Braunschneider, our new Joshua; & especially Joe Acanfora, our Moses. During the service of consecration and thanksgiving for Church of the Apostles’ new church home in Fairfax, Virginia last month, I was surprised and filled with joy when I closed my eyes. Remaining behind closed eyelids was the image of the cross that was against the back wall of the chancel. I suddenly remembered how I used to love “seeing” that cross while praying at Church of the...

John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg was a 30 year old member of the Virginia House of Burgesses, who was also a pastor.
