he Episcopal Church, the 1,500,000-member progressive denomination found predominantly in America, has been a foul cauldron teeming with blasphemy and iniquity for a long time. Declining steadily over the last few decades, this denomination is thoroughly depraved and ceased long being Christian decades ago, with perhaps only a fraction of a percent of real believers left.
Abortion and LGBTQ acceptance have long since been lauded and celebrated. If you throw a stone into a group of Episcopalian priests, a third will be gay, another third will have they/them pronouns, and the rest will be a miracle-denying atheist who’d just as soon defecate on the bible than deliver it as God’s word.
It is for this reason that, With a Median Congregational Age of 69, The Episcopal Church is Literally Dying, and we could not be more thrilled or excited about it.
What we’re not thrilled about was what transpired at their 2022 General Assembly on July 8-11. The denomination reaffirmed, in light of the overruling of Roe V Wade, their support of abortion till birth, passing D083, which reaches in part:
Resolved, that the Episcopal Church recognizes that access to abortion is a key element in preserving the health, independence, and autonomy of those who can bear children; and be it further;
Resolved, that the 80th General Convention affirms that all Episcopalians should be able to access abortion services and birth control with no restriction on movement, autonomy, type, or timing; and be it further;
But what was especially shocking was D076, where the denomination sought to pass a resolution that “denounces” the work of Crisis Pregnancy Centers and apologizes for the Church’s previous support of them.
Though the House of Deputies cleared the resolution, it missed a crucial deadline, and the House of Bishops (which is comprised of all active or retired bishops in the denomination) had to vote on the pregnancy center resolution on the last day of the convention, ultimately rejecting it by a vote of 42-70.
The fact that it was even put up for voting is insane, and that it got that many votes from 42 Bishops means that it’ll likely be introduced the year after, and the next, until it gains a majority of support and becomes part of the church’s official teachings.
