    The Archbishop of Canterbury has suggested that Jesus would get vaccinated against Covid. The Most Rev Justin Welby urged people to get jabbed, saying it is a moral issue. He also issued a thinly-veiled criticism of No10 saying he felt ‘real disappointment and sadness’ at seeing photos of Downing Street staff eating cheese and drinking wine during the first lockdown. In an interview with ITV News At Ten, the archbishop said getting vaccinated ‘is not about me and my rights’. ‘It’s about how I love my neighbour. Vaccination reduces my chances of getting ill and reducing my chances of getting...

    The Archbishop of Canterbury has said being vaccinated against coronavirus is a moral issue. The Most Rev Justin Welby said that getting the jab reduces the chances of illness being spread and that 'it's not about me and my rights to choose - it's about how I love my neighbour'. His comments come as Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that people could go ahead with their Christmas plans but there is 'continuing uncertainty' about the severity of the fast-spreading Omicron variant and hospital admission rates.

    San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone is urging Catholics to fast and pray for the “conversion of heart” of pro-abortion Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). “A conversion of heart of the majority of our Congressional representatives is needed” on the abortion issue, Archbishop Cordileone said in a statement this week, “beginning with the leader of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi.” “I am therefore inviting all Catholics to join in a massive and visible campaign of prayer and fasting for Speaker Pelosi,” the archbishop said, and to “commit to praying one rosary a week and fasting on Fridays for her...
  • The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America abandons the Bible, selects a Transgender as the Archbishop of the Sierra Pacific Synod

    The excitement in San Francisco is palpable. As SFGate, an independent spin-off of the San Francisco Chronicle, boasts, "San Francisco achieves yet another first in LGBTQ+ history with transgender bishop." The huge Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), with its 3.3 million members nationwide, is proud of itself. It shouldn't be. The decision to give an archbishopric to a man who claims to have magically become a woman because he wants to be is profoundly anti-biblical. The appointment is also an insult to coherent grammar and, as I've argued in the past, proof that nobody on the left really believes...
  • Speaker Pelosi's archbishop defends Texas pro-life law: 'You cannot be a good Catholic' and support abortion

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s archbishop is defending a pro-life law that went into effect in Texas and doubling down on his previous assertions that Catholics in good standing cannot support abortion. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco wrote an op-ed piece for The Washington Post illustrating “Our duty to challenge Catholic politicians who support abortion rights.” Cordileone, who oversees territory that includes the area Pelosi represents in the Congress, called her out as one of several Catholic politicians who support a practice that directly contradicts the church’s teaching. “I find it especially disturbing that so...

    During this year's Holy Week, in the days leading up to Easter Sunday, Catholics find themselves in a fierce debate as some would try to cancel an archbishop for correctly stating Church teaching. This is specifically on abortion as it pertains to President Joe Biden, who is often showcasing his Catholic faith. Candidate as well as President Biden's staffers, surrogates, and supporters, are often reminding voters that Biden is a "devout" Catholic, despite how he publicly disagrees with the Church on abortion. Jen Psaki spins out of Hyde Amdt. & Mexico City question by saying Pres. Biden is a "devout...

    A retired archbishop has said that President-elect Joe Biden should not receive Holy Communion because of his stance on abortion -- an issue that has divided Catholic leadership in the U.S. The head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said Biden’s support for abortion rights presents the church with a “difficult and complex situation,” but Charles J. Chaput, a retired archbishop, has made his stance clear: Biden has demonstrated that “he is not in full Communion with the Catholic Church.” “The implications for the present moment are clear,” Chaput wrote in the magazine First Things. “Public figures who identify...

    The world in which we find ourselves living is, to use an expression from the Gospel, in se divisum (Matthew 12:25). This division, it seems to me, consists of a split between reality and fiction: objective reality on one side, and the fiction of the media on the other. This certainly applies to the pandemic, which has been used as a tool of social engineering that is instrumental to the Great Reset, but it applies even more to the surreal American political situation, in which the evidence of a colossal electoral fraud is being censored by the media, which now proclaims Joe Biden's victory as an accomplished fact.   The reality of COVID is...

    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...

    Finally, despite the worst efforts of Victoria Police, Victoria’s legal system, and the media’s smear factory, Cardinal George Pell has had his conviction overturned by the High Court. The full judgment can be read here. “A” refers to the choirboy and “B” to his deceased fellow chorister. Below some key elements of that unanimous ruling:57. In this Court, the respondent correctly noted that a number of the claimed improbabilities raise the same point. It remains that acceptance of A’s account of the first incident requires finding that: (i) contrary to the applicant’s practice, he did not stand on the steps...

    Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher warned against the dangers of identity politics in his Christmas morning homily, suggesting that today’s snowflakes risk falling victims to a toxic narcissism. “As desires change, we can revise our bodies surgically or our beliefs ideologically,” the archbishop said. “But reducing ourselves to our tastes or to a single attribute risks neglecting other important things about us.” “Amidst celebrity adulation and identity politics, narcissism is now endemic. Too much focus on identity can be distorting,” he warned. Preaching to a standing room-only crowd of some 2,000 Catholics at St. Mary’s Cathedral Wednesday morning, Fisher said that...

    NEW YORK – One U.S. prelate has gone where none have dared to go before: Directly condemning President Donald Trump for racism. In a series of tweets Aug. 5, San Antonio’s Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller pleaded with Trump to “stop hate and racism, starting with yourself.” In several follow-up messages, the Mexican-American archbishop directly called out the president saying: “President stop your hatred.
