A Review of Trans Life Survivors. By Walt Heyer

One person who knows all about this is Walt Heyer. He was born male, transitioned to female at age 42, and lived that way for eight years. He then detransitioned, and has since been helping others in this area. He has already penned a number of important books on this issue, including his 2013 volume, Gender, Lies and Suicide.

How the world's most famous Muslim played Pope Francis for a fool

Last year, Al-Tayyeb crossed London Bridge to play the game of taqqiya (Islamic dissimulation) with the Archbishop of Canterbury. Pro-gay Welby was tweeting Al-Tayyeb's praises from Lambeth Palace's minarets. "You are a sign of hope for our world," gushed Archbishop Welby like the Trevi Fountain. The alt-media dug up Al-Tayyeb's Arabic orations denouncing homosexuality as a disease, and exposed Welby as a Western sucker who fell for the Grand Imam's weasel words.

National Poll: Most "Pro-Choice" Americans Oppose Infanticide and Abortion Up to Birth

Today, non-partisan polling firm YouGov, in partnership with Americans United for Life (AUL), released findings from a national survey of 1,145 American adults involving attitudes toward abortion. The survey took place on February 6 and 7, two weeks after New York passed and enacted the Reproductive Health Act, which allows doctors and other healthcare professionals to perform abortions up to the point of birth, and one week after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam made controversial comments about procedures after birth.

Among the survey's key findings:

The Apostle Paul and Lambeth 2020

"Let me ask you a personal question -- because true fellowship is personal and a church council, while it has a formal role, is a body of brothers (and sisters) united in "making the good confession" of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"SIX RESOLUTIONS FOR LAMBETH": A Quick Response to Ephraim Radner

As I understand them, Goddard and Radner are proposing a radical redo of the current "design" for Lambeth. To begin with, there is no provision at present for any Resolutions at all, but rather for another "Lambeth Indaba" -- "God's Church for God's World: Walking, Listening, and Working Together" -- as in 2008.

Knowing Where we Stand: Washington Post Columnist Says Anyone Who Holds to Biblical Morality Is A Bigot--Calls for VP Pence to Resign

So we are told in advance that the article will condemn bigotry. The headline itself carries a weighty context--the background of the article flows from the charges levied against the governor of Virginia after embarrassing photographs surfaced that indicate a repetitive pattern of racism. Understandably, the Democratic Party has decided that Northam should resign. But Richard Cohen says that by the same logic, if Governor Northam must go, Vice President Mike Pence must go too. Why? Because both Northam and Pence stand equally guilty of bigotry.

MOLOCH RETURNS

A stunned Professor Robert George commented, "What kind of people are we? How can so many be utterly blind to such gross and manifest evil? These people were cheering. They were cheering. Where did this fanatical commitment to ensuring that the lives of children in the womb count for nothing -- indeed less than nothing -- come from? How did this contempt for human life insinuate itself into people's hearts?"

Christianity's Masculinity Crisis

G.K. Chesterton observed that "it ought to be the oldest things that are taught to the youngest people." In other words, children should be first exposed to the time-tested ideas and facts that we're most sure of. But in today's educational wonderland, Chesterton's formula has been turned on its head. These days, educators feel they have a mandate to introduce the most novel and untested theories to the youngest people.

Homosexuals and Women now dominate in the Episcopal Church

In one sense this is nothing new. In 2003, the Episcopal Church elected V. Gene Robinson to be the first public homosexual living in a partnered relationship with another man to be the Bishop of New Hampshire. In 2010, the Episcopal Church consecrated its first openly lesbian bishop, Mary Glasspool, over objections from orthodox Anglicans.

FT. WORTH, TX: Court has Diocese's Petition 'under consideration'

It was the decision of the high Court in 2013 that neutral principles of law should govern disputes over church property in Texas, yet the only judge of the Fort Worth court of appeals to sign an opinion took an approach that effectively reverted to the deference standard in that opinion.

WHEN IS "GOOD DISAGREEMENT" NOT GOOD? When It Contradicts God's Word

Next Andrew John, the Bishop of Bangor (Wales), surveys the arc of local Anglican opinion (against same-sex marriage -- 1 bishop, 21 clergy, 28 laity; for same-sex unions or marriage -- 5 bishops, 27 clergy, 38 laity). He then turns to the pertinent biblical texts and concludes: "whenever the Bible deals with this matter it is always in negative terms and is properly summed up in the oft-repeated phrase: 'The Church cannot bless what God does not.'" For many other Christians, he continues, the matter is not settled.

2020 Lambeth Conference is Obstacle to the Gospel - Nigerian Primate

Writing in his February letter to GAFCON followers who make up more than 80% of the Anglican Communion, the chairman said the Church is prey to "fierce wolves". St. Paul warns the Ephesian elders to beware of, even those who arise from within the Church and speak "twisted things".

The Neurotic Syndrome of Failed Self-Righteousness

This spiritual warfare is occurring on at least two fronts-- which represent opposite ends of the spectrum of ecclesiastically sponsored evil--that is, both lawlessness and religious legalism. As indicated in Paul's letters as well as in the Lord's messages to the churches in Asia (Revelation 2-3), this is a war that has been waged for millennia. Christians and churches can be damaged and become out of balance by either too much license or too much law.

Archbishop of Cape Town calls on bishops to "express your difference"

VOL: The Anglican Communion has been "impaired" and the "fabric torn" for over a decade and revisionists and progressives have done nothing about repairing it. They were warned in 1998 when Lambeth 1:10 was passed that the Episcopal Church had to repent of its position. Sodomy is a salvation issue. Instead TEC went ahead and ordained an openly homosexual to the episcopacy in the person of Gene Robinson. It did so, defying the will and mind of the vast majority of the Anglican Communion. As a result, the Episcopal Church split and the ACNA was born and GAFCON was formed.

Nazis and Church of England bastardize baptism to play identity politics

Anglicans can live with this pulverisingly puerile pap. It's not the unpardonable sin. But the Church of England's liturgical meddlers have not stopped at watering down the sacramental gruel. Like the Witch of Endor summoning the ghost of Samuel, the House of Bishops have invited the Frankenstein of identity politics to preside over a new subversion of the sacraments.

Theologians Challenge B012 * Two State Abortion Laws Rock Christians, TEC Affirms Woman's Right * Heather Cook tries again to get out of Jail * Court Reaffirms LA Bishop's Suspension * Florida Bishop under Fire over B012 Implementation * More

"How can we speak of the termination of a pregnancy when what we really mean is the destruction of a human life? How can we talk of therapeutic abortion when pregnancy is not a disease needing therapy and what abortion effects is not a cure but a killing? How can we talk of abortion as a kind of retroactive contraception when what it does is not prevent conception but destroy the conceptus? We need to have the courage to use accurate language. Abortion is feticide: the destruction of an unborn child.

Canon Michael Green has died: An evangelical giant has fallen

"In many ways Oxford was Michael's city. He studied at Exeter College where he was President of the Oxford Inter-Collegiate Christian Union, and married Rosemary, the lady vice-president. They went on to have four children. In the evangelistic ministry for which he was renowned he was a frequent speaker at the OICCU and led some of its University Missions. His book "Choose Freedom" became a standard evangelistic book for its time and was followed by others published by his good friend Edward England at Hodder and Stoughton.

Same-Sex Relationships: Sorry Bishop, But The Meaning Of Holiness Does Not Change From Generation To Generation

The essence of his argument was that the Church of England should revise its attitude and accept LBGTI people because, whilst God is unchanging, the meaning of holiness changes from generation to generation. He compared the current desire to revise the church's understanding of sexuality with the way the church had changed its teaching on divorce and remarriage.

Mythbusting at launch of independent review of UK support for Persecuted Christians

Christianity is not primarily an expression of white western privilege, said Bishop Philip the review chairman, but a truly global phenomenon, mainly of the global south and the global poor. The claim "Jesus is Lord" has always been a subversive challenge to power, especially absolute power. Archbishop Nicholls of Westminster noted further that the depth of Christian commitment to service was the obverse of its critique of the misuse of power. He noted that religious faith was an important factor in the world which was not becoming more secular.

Homo RICO: The Feds Need to Bust Big Gay

Ed Buck's case deals with two black men, both younger, who died in his California home during some sort of drug-induced sex play.

Terry Bean's case points to troubling congress with younger men, possibly including a minor.

"LIVING IN LOVE AND FAITH": Tree or Billboard?

Knowing my habit of "fisking" documents, this colleague asked me if I would have a go at this one. Having slogged my way through, I politely decline. Far be it from me to tell the General Synod what to do. Farther still from teaching the English how to speak. But I will call on a couple Englishmen to support this contention: if this Report is representative of the quality of writing and thinking that we can expect from its contributors, it will go down as a memorial to the unbearable lightness of being Anglican.

Here is one sample page (of fourteen) from the Report:

UK: Pressure on orthodox Christian views politely and gently increased in nation and church

If the reader scrolls down through technical legal issues about government powers, and the discussion about whether Civil Partnerships should be extended to siblings, the moving of amendment 2 by Lord Faulkner of Worcester can be found: "The Secretary of State must make regulations to amend the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 to remove the exemption for members of the clergy to solemnize the marriage of a same sex couple." Faulkner went on to urge the Church of England to "follow the lead set by the Anglican Churches in Scotland, the United States, Canada and other countries and permit

The Presiding Bishop's Big Black Lie

"During the period of this restriction, Bishop Love, acting individually, or as Bishop Diocesan, or in any other capacity, is forbidden from participating in any manner in the Church's disciplinary process in the Diocese of Albany in any matter regarding any member of the clergy that involves the issue of same-sex marriage.

Bishop of Chichester refuses to say Bishop George Bell is "innocent"

Maintaining that the Church of England's internal investigation led by senior ecclesiastical lawyer Timothy Briden had cleared Bishop Bell only of the second set of allegations, the recent Briden report "made no statement about the original allegations," Warner said.

FLORIDA: Episcopal bishop under fire over implementing B012

Only one bishop, William Love of Albany refused to cave in to the General Convention resolution saying that it violated the vows he took as a bishop to safeguard the doctrine and teaching of the church. "If I have to decide between following God's Holy Word or what I believe to be a "flawed" General Convention resolution that contradicts God's Holy Word, there is no question. God's Holy Word "trumps" everything."
