“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”
The shocking thing about this isn’t the thing itself, but that there still are people who call this Jewy institution “Christian” when it is anything but.
The Church of England has rejected a proposal for a new service to mark a congregant’s sex change – but has given the nod to using an existing ‘reaffirmation’ baptism service, instead.
The decision by the Anglican House of Bishops to reject proposals for the development of a new special service to mark gender transitions was criticised by LGBT activists within the church.
Did you read that bolded part? “LGBT activists within the church.”
A religious organization that has within it supporters of something their own holy book says should be killed still has people calling it “Christian.”
The ruling, revealed on Sunday, comes after the General Synod voted overwhelmingly in favour of introducing such church services in July.
Though the House of Bishops rejects the writing of a new service, it advises clergy that they may use an existing rite used to reaffirm a Christian’s faith, the “Affirmation of Baptismal Faith”, to mark gender transitions.
The Bishop of Norwich, the Right Reverend Graham James, said: “The Church of England welcomes transgender people and wholeheartedly wishes for them to be included in the life of the Church.
“On the matter of whether a new service is needed, the House of Bishops has decided that the current service that is used to affirm baptism can be adapted.
“Clergy always have the discretion to compose and say prayers with people as they see fit,” the Right Reverend added.
I don’t know about you guys, but if I were God, I’d be like
The only reason I can think of for God not doing that is that He’s just looking at them and thinking “LMAO, I can’t wait to see these degenerates burning in hell for all eternity!”
I’m not a theologian, so I can’t say for sure.
The statement prepared by the Church of England, the mother church of the international Anglican Communion, added that new guidance will be prepared on the use of the existing ‘affirmation’ baptism service.
William Nye, Secretary General of the Church’s parliament, the General Synod, claimed that “the focal point of this [affirmation] service is on the individual’s faith in Jesus Christ, rather than on the individual’s name or gender – regardless of whether or not it was different from when they were baptised.”
Gender is not something that can be changed, bud.
A man who cuts his dick off and wears a dress isn’t a woman, it’s just a man who cut his dick off and wears a dress.
However, this concession on Biblical teaching failed to move the progressive faction of the church, with a senior member of the left-liberal General Synod telling the Mail on Sunday: “I am surprised that they have decided that new liturgies weren’t necessary given the force of the arguments and the feeling of Synod. You need to be able to respond to people’s life events.
Fun fact: The creature they’re quoting here is a man pretending to be a woman, who is also a “reverend” and a “Trans Christian Activist.”
The English Protestant church has been criticised by conservative Christians for its progressive abandonment of Biblical teaching and for bowing to pressure from the transgender lobby.
In November, the Church of England said schools should encourage young children to experiment with their “gender identity” in its guidance on bullying, writing: “Children should be at liberty to explore the possibilities of who they might be without judgment or derision.”
Church of England bishops are working on a major “teaching document”, to be released in 2020, on same-sex marriage, according to The Christian Post.
If you’re a member of this “Church,” I have bad news for you – you’re going to hell, literally.
Sure, they still have one old man who’s an actual Christian, but even he gave up almost as soon as he started saying something.
So if you really believe in Christianity, convert to another Church, literally every Church that I know of is better than this.
Hell, at this point, unironically sacrificing chicken in the name of a Lovecraftian deity of your choice is closer to true Christianity than being an Anglican.
