December 13 2017 By dvirtue Rector threatens split if new Bishop of London tolerates gay relationships

The rector of St Helen's has said that his first question to the new bishop will be to ask him or her to "declare as sin what God calls sin".

If the bishop does not condemn homosexual relationships as sinful, then some form of break will be "unavoidable", the Rev William Taylor said last week in a sermon at the church, which attracts 2,000 worshippers across its four Sunday services.

He said: "We now wait to see what the new Bishop of London's views are."

December 12 2017 By dvirtue Morale Deficit among Faithful Ministers in the Church of England needs Tackling

In many cases, these ministers are serving in churches that are not altogether behind them theologically. And many of them are serving the Lord in dioceses that are going terribly astray spiritually and morally.

December 11 2017 By dvirtue Prince Charles' accession 'could spark debate over disestablishment' say secularists

But the new report, called Separating Church and State: The Case for Disestablishment, questions the institutional links between Church, Monarchy and Parliament and indicates that secularists are gearing up for a major discussion about the issue when Prince Charles accedes to the throne.

December 04 2017 By dvirtue ENGLAND: Advent-cum-Mawlid: church holds joint birthday celebration for Mohammed and Jesus

We have been here before: when Westminster Abbey hosted a service in which Mohammed was named in the succession of prophets, they effectively proclaimed to the world that Mohammed is greater than Jesus:

December 03 2017 By dvirtue ANGLICAN MISSION IN ENGLAND COMES OF AGE

What was striking was the statemanslike nature of the statement by AMIE's mission director Lee McNunn announcing the ordinations. This belied the juvenile headline by the allegedly evangelical but actually liberal-leaning website, Christian Today: 'Rival Anglican church ordains new clergy in challenge to Justin Welby' (current Archbishop of Canterbury).

November 24 2017 By dvirtue Welby gives lecture on 'Christian hope' in Moscow

When my predecessor, Archbishop Rowan Williams, and His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew laid down the mandate for the fourth round of Anglican-Orthodox Dialogue in 2007 the topics to be discussed were ethical. Yet the first report of this phase of dialogue was about theological anthropology rather than Christian ethics. Why? Because ethical issues cannot be considered in the abstract. It is a mistake to look at ethics in a way that is disconnected from our understanding of human beings.

November 23 2017 By dvirtue HOW MANY BIG BROTHERS ARE WATCHING YOU?

I was so uneasy about this that I mentioned it to my taxi driver on the way home in order to discover what he thought about these Safeguarding techniques. "Oh don't talk to me about Safeguarding. I'm full up to here with it. We taxi drivers were told by the Safeguarders that we should look closely at our women passengers for signs of physical abuse. It's sick, I tell you"

November 22 2017 By dvirtue Church of England hits back over claims it is 'delaying' George Bell report

The Church said in a statement that the delay in publishing the report from the review by Lord Carlile of Berriew into lessons learnt from the case, which was delivered more than six weeks ago on October 7, was down to the 'intensive process' of 'responding with feedback from those who contributed' which includes 'issues over factual accuracy and identification of "Carol"' the pseudonym for the complainant, in accordance to the terms of reference.

November 21 2017 By dvirtue Welby's transgender crusade will encourage bullying, not stop it

The C of E version of the story has two drunks afflicted by cognitive dissonance. Arch of Cant 'Wobbly' Welby and his Chief Education Officer Nigel Genders (believe me, that is his real name!) are frenziedly explaining how little boys can combat the classroom bully if given permission to cast off their school uniforms and parade around dressed like drag queens. Not even Homer Simpson would come up with such a barmy solution to bullying.
