The Black Blessing and the Moral Dissipation of the Episcopal Church

By the 2000 convention, the Episcopal Church recognized that there was a “variety of human relationships in and outside of marriage,” and also recognized that there was “disagreement over the Church’s traditional teaching on human sexuality.”

By 2006, the homosexual agenda had taken over that church, and in the convention that year, the Episcopal Church called on legislatures to provide civil benefits to same-sex unions and called on its members to oppose any state or federal constitutional amendments intended to prohibit same-sex “marriages” or civil unions.

In 2009, homosexual men and women “in a lifelong committed relationship” were allowed to be ordained, and Episcopal bishops were given the authority to decide whether or not to bless same-sex marriage in their particular dioceses. 

By 2012, any effective opposition had collapsed, and an official liturgy to bless same-sex couples and their “marriages,” entitled “The Witnessing and Blessing of a Lifelong Covenant” for use at the various dioceses was approved. 

The Episcopal Church shows the truth of Virgil’s words, facilis descensus averno.  It is easy to walk downhill to the nether-world.

Apparently, in its slow and steady dissipation, the Episcopal Church has plum forgot the Sixth Commandment, which traditionally has been seen as governing the requirement of chastity among all mankind.

facilis descensus averno.

Just think of it as a prophetic witness to the observer.

The Nazi’s and Jews had a relationship.  An evil one but there it was.

A relationship is not a thing.  You can’t touch it.  You don’t work for it.  It’s just a pattern of interaction between two people.

I was just about to send you the link to this article from Catholic Online. Glad to see it here.

I read the disgusting thing today. It’s perverted, sacrilegious, blasphemous, evil - in short, doing the work of Satan.

I don’t actually approve entirely of this article.  We have some homosexualist ideologues among us Catholics, and it’s unseemly to spend too much time on the Episcopal Church or any other church. While I agree in principle, a bit more humility is in order (at least to my way of thinking).

Any way, is this:

The salt began to lose its savor in 1976 when it vaguely declared that homosexuals are “children of God” and are “entitled to full civil rights.”

altogether different from this:

The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

That’s paragraph 2358 of the Catechism, immediately following the paragraph quoted in the article.
