July 09 2019 By virtueonline The Archbishop of Kenya Interviewed

The Anglican Church in Kenya is very large with 9% of the population stating they belonged to it in a recent survey, making it the second largest denomination in Kenya, after the Catholic Church, with nearly 5m adherents. The church is very engaged in all kinds of excellent and innovative social projects without in any way losing its evangelistic distinctiveness. He mentioned that the church in Kenya started by missionaries had four buildings: a church, a dispensary, a school and a garden.

July 09 2019 By virtueonline THE MORAL COLLAPSE OF BRITAIN

Our story since creation is epic in its series of episode upon episode of human wickedness, defiance of divine wisdom and law, abuse of our Maker's gifts, misuse of our God-given faculties and functions, and wanton destruction of all things good, conceptual and physical. Our record is exceedingly reprehensible. Our world is ruined. Our souls are lost when we raise our consciences Godward by his enabling.

July 06 2019 By virtueonline Orthodox England - fact or fiction? A reply to Simon Dennerly's "ROCOR rewrites history to convert Anglicans"

By contrast, the author's historical assertion, can easily be refuted. To begin with, it must be remembered that the immediate effects of the Great Schism of 1054, as opposed to its long-term ramifications, are commonly overestimated in popular literature on the topic.

July 05 2019 By virtueonline How should we respond when a church leader is guilty of abuse?

This acknowledges that false accusations are sometimes levelled at church leaders. This paper is written for a situation where the facts have been established. The particular kinds of alleged behaviour to which I have been asked to respond are of two kinds. The first is where a church leader has asked a number of other men, individually one at a time, to join him in private and naked massages.

July 05 2019 By virtueonline There is no such thing as 'spiritual abuse'

There is no sex involved in this recent manipulation, but an abuse of power there certainly is, and an unwelcome degree of psychological pressure to accompany it. One would have to be very naive not to see persistent texting of a victim as a form of continued abuse by somebody who holds a senior position in the same closed group and who may themselves have been a victim of similar abuse.

July 01 2019 By virtueonline The Vision For Human Freedom And Dignity--Biblical And Catholic

As I have written and shared elsewhere, I believe the question of what constitutes true human freedom and dignity lies at the heart of the once-every-500-year Reformation that we are in right now. The question might be phrased around the issues of authority that have been at the heart of every 500-year reformation: Where does the authority lie in defining the issue of our day?

June 27 2019 By virtueonline No, Christianity Does Not Support Paying Reparations 150 Years After Slavery

Reparations have been supported by multiple Democratic presidential candidates and religious leaders. Last week, Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton, the Episcopal bishop of Maryland, urged Congress to pass HR 40. Sutton, perhaps himself a candidate for the commission, claimed to represent the perspective of the faith community in favor of reparations. After all, reparations have unanimous support from his diocese, which is 90 percent white.

June 26 2019 By virtueonline The Anglican Church of Canada and Same-Sex Marriage

'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master -- that's all."

In other words, when Humpty Dumpty uses the word marriage, it means just what he chooses it to mean. The question is not about the meaning. The question is which is to be master -- that's all.

June 17 2019 By virtueonline Feminism was women's great enemy--until transgenderism came along

Icarus ignores his father's instructions. He flies too close to the sun. The wax in his wings melts. He falls into the sea and drowns.

In calling for the destruction of the family, the patriarchy and monogamy, the high priestesses of feminism were calling for the abolition of womanhood.

In Greek mythology, Icarus is the archetype of hubris. In Greek tragedy, hubris is excessive pride towards or defiance of the gods, leading to nemesis.
