August 16 2016 By dvirtue Satan Issues a Prime Directive

It would appear that this Trump fellow has dominated both the national arena and public imagination of millions of Americans, as he bombasts his way from one reckless statement to the next. This is, of course, sweet music to our ears. The crazier he sounds the more his followers seem to grow especially and including those idiot evangelicals.

August 11 2016 By dvirtue Could a Parallel Anglican Communion be in the Works?

He called the January meeting of primates in Canterbury "a complete failure"; it only revealed the theological weaknesses in the Anglican Communion, he said. The Lambeth conference is out of date and the future of the Anglican Communion now lies with GAFCON. He said the ACC-16 Lusaka gathering was "irrelevant to the GAFCON bishops" and the Nairobi Communique was "toothless". Archbishop Welby said "consequences" would be enforced, but that is irrelevant.

Welby recently hired a new lady "reconciler", Sarah Snyder, as his new Advisor for Reconciliation.

GAFCON General Secretary, Peter Jensen, later told VOL that what happened in Canterbury was “a complete failure but worth doing.

There is no excuse for the subsequent behavior of The Episcopal Church.”

The issue at stake is that of same-sex relationships. Dr Jensen's remarks followed comments made by Nigerian Primate, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, in his June Pastoral Letter as Chair of the GAFCON Primates' Council, in which he stated: "In the beginning, the focus of our concern was North America and we thank God that he has raised up the Anglican Church in North America as a new wineskin in that continent. Now our concern is increasingly with the British Isles."

But the Episcopal diocese has not won the hearts of a single Anglican Christian. The Episcopal diocese draws a total average weekly Sunday attendance (ASA) of 925.
