  • Anglican Primate Linda Nicholls Urges Government of Canada to Ban Conversion Therapy

    The Anglican Church of Canada's Primate, Linda Nicholls has written to Canada's Minister of Justice to voice her support for Bill C-6, a bill which would criminalize conversion therapy. If this should pass, a therapist, psychotherapist, counsellor or psychiatrist who agrees to help someone resist unwanted same-sex attraction would be committing a criminal act and face fines and possible jail time. At a deeper level it is a fundamental denial of free speech. So, a person who experiences same-sex attraction has no choice but to accept his or her unwanted attractions. Let me repeat: no choice. The reason for this,...

    The Rev. Katherine Ragsdale will soon become the first female president of Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Openly lesbian, the outgoing chief of a liberal think tank that monitored the Religious Right, and best known for her abortion rights advocacy through the Washington-based Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), Ragsdale maybe the perfect icon for untrammeled liberal Episcopalianism. But a rather vigorous two-year-old abortion sermon by Ragsdale, assertive even by her standards, has overshadowed her recent appointment. "Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done!" she repeatedly exclaimed at a rally in defense of an abortion clinic...
  • Lesbian Episcopal ‘priest’ named new head of National Abortion

    November 5, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The National Abortion Federation (NAF) has announced that its new president and CEO is Katherine Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal “priest” and longtime abortion activist. “Abortion providers are some of my personal heroes and modern-day saints,” Ragsdale said when the news was announced. She had been NAF’s interim president and CEO since September 2018. In 2011, she “married” another female Episcopal “priest,” Mally Lloyd. It is unclear if they are still together; Ragsdale’s bio on NAF’s website makes no mention of Lloyd. “For decades, Katherine Ragsdale, a false prophet, has been trying to put religious vestments...
  • Who says same-sex unions don't threaten marriage?

    At the law’s signing Governor Lynch said he believes that the civil unions will not "threaten" marriage – something that Bishop Robinson must also mistakenly believe. Perhaps Gov. Lynch and Bishop Robinson would do well to look across the ocean at Spain, where following the Socialist government's platform - that includes fast-track divorces and same-sex marriages - that country now has the distinguished award of leading Europe in divorces coupled with one of the world's lowest birthrates (ex-immigrants).

    Quartet of Ladies Shows Where We're Headed November 26, 2006 BY MARK STEYN Sun-Times Columnist Have you seen a movie called ''Four Jills In A Jeep''? Don't worry, it's not at the multiplex. It came out in 1944. A wartime movie, about the contribution of the gals to the big existential struggle. Great title, and downhill after that. This column is, metaphorically speaking, four Jills in a jeep: It's about a quartet of ladies who provide useful glimpses of where we're heading. The first is Fatma An-Najar, a 64-year-old grandmother who had a livelier Thanksgiving than most grandmas. She marked...

    SOURCE: http://www.stnicksonline.org/DIRECT LINK Sunday, October 29, 2006 Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord, As you know, the past several years have been a time of intense turmoil within the Episcopal Church. The events of General Convention 2006 have only confirmed that the Episcopal Church is deliberately moving away from the Apostle's teaching as found in Holy Scripture. Despite the relative strength of our own diocese, it is nevertheless the case that we remain part of a withered branch of Christ's Church that has turned its back on His saving Gospel and squandered its spiritual inheritance. After much prayer...

    The governing body of the Church of England voted to divest from any corporations that it contends support Israel's activities in Gaza and the West Bank. The idea of divestiture was ushered in two years ago by the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. The Israeli policy of retaliation against terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians sparked the Anglican move. “We agree with Kofi Annan (UN Secretary General) that the Israeli Defense Force’s targeting of terrorist leaders amounts to execution without trial,” Bishop Arnold Mann. “We want to send a message that the Jews should be doing as our savior Jesus Christ bade us...

    So now the Episcopal church has an "openly gay" (i.e. proselytizing homosexual) bishop. The Rev. V. Gene Robinson, 56, was elected bishop of New Hampshire on June 7, in a vote by clergy and church activists. Robinson abandoned his wife and two infant daughters in 1986 to pursue his "lifestyle."
