March 24 2021 By dvirtue Interview with Peter Hitchens

PH: I don't think these things can be separated. Form and content, in language, music and architecture, are entwined with each other. The recognition of Divine sovereignty over the universe cannot be properly expressed in the language of bureaucracy or advertising. It is a belief rather than a thought. It is an act of the imagination.

If you seek clear chronologies setting out who did what to whom and when, thereby enabling the abuse of others through a culture of obedience and sotto voce threats of exclusion for non-compliance, you will also be disappointed. Such detail is simply not there: it was not allowed.

Given 28 days' notice of publication, Emmanuel Wimbledon are putting on a brave face. I understand they secured professional advice on damage limitation.

In looking at the local literacy project mentioned above, I came across some sobering statistics. As much as most of our readership is based in the United States, these statistics may be of interest.

- In a study of literacy among 20 'high income' countries; the US ranked 12th.

No area of existence in this life will be free from the reach of its tentacles. You will be made to conform. If you resist, you will be fined, fired, and ultimately threatened with imprisonment. Under certain circumstances even your children can be taken away. It is police-state ideological enforcement of radical, biology-denying fake science. Kiss goodbye the liberties you hold so dear and for which countless fought and died. That's how important defeating this bill is.

March 15 2021 By dvirtue HOPE IS A CHOICE

Now, it must be said, throughout the history of the Church there have always been those who have profited from, and motivated populations, with fear. We may think of the penitential preachers at the time of the Black Death in the fourteenth century who motivated the wandering bands of flagellants. Likewise, through his preaching of a fear of judgement, Savonarola ignited the bonfire of the vanities in Renaissance Florence.

March 08 2021 By dvirtue COME, LET US CONFER, Part 2: Justin Welby Enters the Fray

Archbishop Welby proceeds to rebuke Archbishop Ndukuba for violating the "agreed teaching of the Anglican Communion," namely, the 1998 Lambeth Resolution I.10 on Human Sexuality.

Welby zooms in on "paragraphs c and d" of the Resolution since those are the particular clauses that speak of "homosexuals" ("gay" had not become coin of the realm in 1998). I shall come back to those clauses, but we should read the Resolution from the beginning, which states: "This Conference,

March 08 2021 By dvirtue NO ALTERNATIVE TRUTH

The New Testament places a high priority on truth as the basis for Christian faith. How could it be otherwise as we place our faith in a person who claimed to be "the way, the truth and the life". While the word "truth" is used in a variety of ways in the New Testament, it tends to always carry with it a correspondence with reality and discernible facts within that reality. For the writers of the New Testament, as for the early Church, truth was singular.

March 05 2021 By dvirtue COME, LET US CONFER: A Call to the Gafcon Leadership

In view of the teaching of Holy Scripture, the Lambeth Conference of 1998 and the Jerusalem Declaration, this Church upholds faithfulness in marriage between a man and a woman in lifelong union, and believes that abstinence is right for those who are not called to marriage, and cannot legitimize or bless same sex unions or ordain persons who engage in homosexual behavior. Sexual intercourse should take place only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (Canon II.8.2)

The Bishops had not rushed into taking this stance. The problematic terminology had been spreading for a number of years. The Bishops were arguably slow to judge, "quick to listen, slow to speak" (James 1:19).

But when the Bishops issued their Pastoral Statement, reaction was swift.
