"OUR WHOEVER-YOU-ARE WHO ART IN HEAVEN..."
Ok, I'm not blogging this week. So much for good intentions. I can't let this one pass.
Apparently ECUSA has gone and done the unthinkable as Rod Dreher points out!
More ECUSA follies
Quite a report here about the ECUSA General Convention refusing to affirm the particular Lordship of Jesus Christ. Here's a veiled example of the reductio ad Hitlerum invoked by a Tarheel divine:
"This type of language was used in 1920s and 1930s to alienate the type of people who were executed. It was called the Holocaust. I understand the intent, but I ask you to allow the discharge to stay," said the Rev. Eugene C. McDowell, a graduate of Yale Divinity School and Canon Theologian for the Diocese of North Carolina.
Are you a Christian who believes Jesus meant it when he said "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6) You must be some kind of Nazi.

"Who do you say that I am?" None of us is going to escape answering it.
My new acquaintenance last Saturday who thinks all gods are the same has her own way of answering it. She has too much company in our supposedly Christian culture. ECUSA is just making it obvious. One can only hope that Benedict will make it clear that ecumenism leads somewhere else, because his is the one voice that can make the difference that Western civilization is suffering for lack of.
Jesus Christ is Lord!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
Here's the wording of the resolution.
Check out David Virtue's website where you can read:
COLUMBUS, OHIO (6/21/06)-While addressing a morning Eucharist at the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church, Presiding Bishop-elect Katherine Jefferts Schori declared, "Our mother Jesus gives birth to a new creation. And you and I are His children."
With Jefferts Schori as the leader-to-be of the Episcopal Chuch, it seems that the church will move beyond gender-inclusive language to transgender-inclusive language.
Make that headline up top "OUR WHATEVER-YOU-ARE WHO ART IN HEAVEN..."
The religious fiction writers must be putting in overtime.
