July 24 2017 By dvirtue When men stop believing in God, they believe anything

Searyl Atli, an eight-month baby, has been issued with a health card that does not specify the child's sex.

Kori Doty is campaigning to omit the baby's sex from all other official records including the birth certificate.

The Rector of the Minister, Canon Dr Neal Barnes, who identifies himself as an evangelical, has defended his decision to host this event by appealing to the statements made by Archbishops Welby and Sentamu after the failed House of Bishops Report earlier this year.

July 19 2017 By dvirtue Gun-toting Episcopal priest in Corvette latest exemplar of Florida road rage

The two Floridians in the pickup truck who were receiving the Very Reverend Adams' silent sermon phoned the Florida Highway Patrol, in hopes of avoiding gunfire and brimstone.

One particularly shocking parallel case to Bishop Ball concerns Rev. William Campbell-Taylor, a vicar in Hackney in the Diocese of London who also held public office as a Labour Party Common Councilman in the City of London Corporation.
