Today, the Episcopal Church in America has received the religious equivalent of having its hand slapped and sent to the corner to think about its choices for the next 3 years. It seems that the Anglican Communion, specifically Bishops from African countries who dominate, feel very strongly about the “liberal” leanings of the American church regarding LGBT issues. Here are my two cents on that, if you support the regime of a country that actively harasses, persecutes, and executes LGBT individuals then your opinion really doesn’t matter. You aren’t a very good Christian.
Sunday morning, when I serve as 2nd reader and read the Prayers of the People, I will definitely be praying for our holy, catholic church that it may be one. More than anything, I pray that the hearts and minds of those so hardened to their fellow humans will change in the next three years.
