As Eye See It
December 21 2017 By dvirtue The year is 2067, and long-dead archbishop Justin Welby is accused of child abuse...

And the boy -- known as 'Nick' to protect his identity -- described those stairs so accurately: five or six of them, cold and grey, then a left turn up to what seemed like an ante-room, with dark panelled walls and a stone fireplace which had a desk in front of it. A small ink-sketched portrait hung above that desk; random antique chairs scattered around.

December 19 2017 By dvirtue Welby was wrong to leave a stain on Bishop Bell's memory

The review, though intricate, was also damning. Its author, Lord Carlile of Berriew, found that the investigation of the allegation made against Bell had been "inappropriate and impermissable" and resulted in a financial settlement which was "indefensibly wrong".

December 17 2017 By dvirtue Sorry's not enough for Church's betrayal of a hero falsely accused

The CofE condemned Bishop George Bell exclusively on the basis of a single entirely uncorroborated witness decades after the alleged sexual abuse was said to have occurred.

It violated the sanctity of one of the most hallowed tenets of jurisprudence dating back to the sixth century Digest of Justinian and held sacred in Canon law, Islamic law and English common law. This is the presumption of innocence -- that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty.

December 17 2017 By dvirtue Britain's feminists march to the drumbeat of Islamic fundamentalism

In both countries, you are guilty until proven innocent, and you may never be proven innocent. So steer clear of Mo (Mohammed) in Pakistan, or Mo (Maureen) in England!

December 13 2017 By dvirtue The curse behind an LGBT prayer

He is campaigning for the C of E to follows the Scottish Episcopal Church to adopt same-sex marriage. His argument was that if George became homosexual, and entered a same-sex marriage, that might convince waverers what a beautiful thing the marriage of two men really was.

Not everyone was convinced that using a child as a gender-political football was in the best taste.

December 13 2017 By dvirtue Fred Hiltz, Jerusalem and Trump

Hiltz, as Anglican Primate floats, as usual, blissfully above the demands that facts and reality impose on mere mortals. Thus, he declares that Trump has acted unilaterally, in spite of the fact that the U.S. congress voted to recognise Jerusalem as capital 22 years ago. Trump has done what every other president for the last 22 years has been putting off. This is very unAnglican: Anglicans have endless conversations when something comes up that they dislike.

December 11 2017 By dvirtue Drop in Abortions in U.S. a Victory for Pro-Life Movement but Rights of Unborn Still far off

Pro-life organizations and life advocates experience great joys in the victories, but also the greatest of sorrows in the losses. It can at times feel like an endless battle, but we have made it our mission to love the mother, who is facing a decision that will impact the rest of her life, and the baby, whose value should not be defined by how the parents feel about him/her.

December 10 2017 By dvirtue Author Melvin Tinker Exposes Neo-Marxist Trick in Culture Hijack

I remember visiting the Dome with my wife and youngest son and walking out after an hour feeling quite depressed with an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. The reason was that the Dome and its exhibitions seemed to represent all that Britain had slowly degenerated into becoming and what the new politicos wanted it to be in the future: high on style, low on substance, tacky, superficial and destined to be short lived.

December 03 2017 By dvirtue Easy virtues of the grandstanding archbishops

The Trump-voter, standing far off, will not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beats his breast, saying: 'I am a garbage collector from America's Rust Belt struggling to raise a family. I voted for Trump. God, be merciful to me, a sinner!'

November 29 2017 By dvirtue THE CANTERBURY BAIT AND SWITCH

There is a long history of religious leaders seeking to follow Jesus' blessing of the peacemakers (Matthew 5:9) in the church and wider society. As the head of the Anglican Communion, Archbishops of Canterbury have in the past sought to mediate crises, as in the aftermath of the Rwanda genocide. This is all to the good, and I hope that Archbishop Welby's mediation may have a positive effect on the tense political climate in Kenya.
