For decades the deplorable Anglican denomination has been drifting on issues of theology and human sexuality, proving time and time again the 26 million members are not the least bit committed to upholding the biblical teachings but instead adopting the worst excesses of the woke movement in a pathetic and desperate attempt at relevancy.
Yesterday, after hours of passionate debates, the Church of England’s General Synod approved a proposal by its bishops to allow clergy to bless same-sex relationships. While the special services won’t be a formal wedding (though that next step will soon be a reality, despite what ignorant and naive Anglicans think) LGBTQ couples participating in these prayer services will be able to receive blessings from the priest, wear rings, have friends and family around them, and even throw confetti.
According to reports:
Stand-alone services to bless particular relationships will now be allowed for a limited period, as proposed by the Rt. Rev. Stephen Croft, Bishop of Oxford, who last year became the first of the Church of England’s sitting bishops to publicly endorse same-sex marriage.
Croft’s amendment was passed by one vote in the House of Laity, 99-98, with two recorded abstentions. It passed in the House of Clergy 101-94, but was more broadly supported among the bishops, who approved it 25-16.
Writing for The Times, Francis Martin reveals that “The outcome of this vote was met with gasps around the chamber, and a coordinated protest from the public gallery, with shouts that the synod was ‘serving Satan.’
Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
