Why I am no longer a tenured professor at the University of Toronto

Second reason: This is one of many issues of appalling ideology currently demolishing the universities and, downstream, the general culture. Not least because there simply is not enough qualified BIPOC people in the pipeline to meet diversity targets quickly enough (BIPOC: black, indigenous and people of colour, for those of you not in the knowing woke). This has been common knowledge among any remotely truthful academic who has served on a hiring committee for the last three decades. This means we're out to produce a generation of researchers utterly unqualified for the job.

A STATEMENT ON THE RESIGNATIONS FROM THE PROVINCIAL RESPONSE TEAM

We disagree with assertions in their resignation letter and wish they had discussed those with us before stepping down, but it would not serve the survivors or the investigative process to debate them at this time. We believe it is in the best interest of all for the Husch Blackwell investigation to proceed to its conclusion, and we remain committed to the care of survivors.

Please join us in praying for all involved.

On the appointment of senior leaders in the Church of England

By all accounts, Stephen Knott has been a competent and valued member of the team at Lambeth. But his appointment is controversial, as last year he entered a same-sex marriage with his partner of 20 years, the Governor of Edinburgh Castle, Major General Alastair Bruce of Crionaich, OBE, and did so in a service of the Scottish Episcopal Church conducted by the Bishop of Edinburgh.

Evangelicals Are Only Group to Say Marriage and Children Should Be a Priority: Poll

White evangelicals are the only religious subgroup with majority support for the marriage and procreation segment of the poll. Catholics (35 percent), black Protestants (36 percent) and white non-evangelical Protestants (35 percent) are all under 40 percent on that specific answer.

Among the religiously unaffiliated, 16 percent say society is better off with people prioritizing marriage and childrearing, while 82 percent believe society is just as well off with other priorities.

Archbishop of York says Climate Change IS the Gospel

The archbishop might want to reflect on what the great apostle said, and in whose apostolic footsteps he claims to tread. In biblical terms the curse levelled by Paul involves eternal damnation. Paul's implication is that false teachers cannot show you the way to salvation because they do not have it themselves. They are condemned. Paul's letter clarified exactly what this meant. Any attempt to alter, water down or change the message of God's salvation in Christ, would meet with divine judgement.

Why Traditional Religion Is Dwindling in America

Today, in 2022, in many American metro areas, only about ten percent attend church and many people do not seem to have any religious sensibilities. Yes, especially GenXers and Millennials will say they are "spiritual but not religious," but they don't engage in any regular spiritual practices unless perhaps "mindfulness" or yoga. As in Europe decades ago, churches in large American cities are closing or struggling to stay open. "Revival meetings" are almost unheard of. And this is not just since the Covid pandemic began.

Congo to Install New Anglican Primate

Dr. Titre is currently the Bishop of Aru Diocese where he will continue serving as the Bishop after his installation as Archbishop.

In a tweet this afternoon, Archbishop Kaziimba described Dr. Titre as a neighbor and good friend and commended Congo for their partnership with Uganda.

"He is our neighbor and friend. The Anglican Province of Congo has been a part of Gafcon and is a strong partner with Church of Uganda in mission and evangelism." He said.

The archbishop is accompanied by his Chaplain the Rev. Johnson Kansiime.

Evangelical Ministry attacks Catholic and Orthodox Churches stand on Worship

"The icon or statue is said to participate in a greater reality, but the kingdom of God is not something out there, but right here, right now. Our worship needs to reinforce that reality."

We do not go to worship to participate in a reality greater than the one we already live in, having been adopted as God's children by His grace. "Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?" (1 Cor. 3:16)

Persecution against Christians on the rise worldwide

On January 19 the non-denominational organization based in the Netherlands presented its 2022 World Watch List (WWL) which ranks the top 50 countries where Christians experience the worst persecution for their faith. The survey, covering a period from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2021, shows that persecution continues to rise especially in Asian and African countries and that the COVID 19 pandemic has further exacerbated discrimination.

Somewhere over the Gay Rainbow Lies the Truth

Today homosexuality is deeply embedded in the culture and the churches so deeply in fact, that it has divided friends and families, churches and societies. In fact, whole nations have been dominated by a behavior that has resulted in over 75 million HIV infections and 32 million deaths from AIDS.

Brad Hutt, a former Episcopal layman of more than 40 years, believes he knows what the real issue is: the dishonesty and manipulation of the debate by the organization's leaders.

Christ, Schleiermacher, Pansexuality, Evangelicalism and the Episcopal Church

From the time of Edmond L. Browning through to Michael Curry, Western Anglican and Episcopal leaders began to abandon absolute truth and the authority of scripture in the area of morality staking their thinking knowingly or unknowingly on the 19th century philosopher theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher (1768-1834).

Losing my religion: The pandemic is causing many to lose faith in God

"... trauma challenges so many assumptions about who we are, what our purpose is and how to make sense of a traumatic event," wrote theologian Danielle Tumminio Hansen, in a piece for The Conversation last year. "Faith-based beliefs and practices offer meaningful resources to help navigate those questions. This is why spiritual beliefs and practices across various religions can often lead to faith strengthening rather than weakening, following a trauma."

Pakistani Christians celebrate return of college to church control

Church of Pakistan Bishop Humphrey Sarfaraz Peters of Peshawar described the decision, which gives the church 75 per cent control over the college, as a "New Year gift for the whole community".

Pakistan's Supreme Court had announced on 3 June 2021 that the church must hand over management of Edwardes College to the local government.

WALES: Archbishop's impotency confirmed

In the article archbishop Andy John confirms his impotence: "As Archbishop, I do not have authority over any diocese other than my own unless the see is vacant."

So there we have it. The diocese of Llandaff falls apart while the bishop of St Davids sits tight after falling into disgrace.

Was it just a coincidence that Joanna and June in particular looked more thrilled than the bishops of St Asaph and Monmouth after it was announced that Andy John had been elected archbishop or could they for some reason have felt more secure?

Three London priests resign honorary roles at Ghanaian cathedral over bishops' support for anti-LGBT laws

"A draft bill has been presented in the parliament in Ghana criminalising LGBTQ+ people and those who support them.

"Unfortunately the churches have felt under pressure to support this Bill and they have done so.

"Following several weeks of discussion with the Archbishop of Ghana, the support of the church for the Bill has not changed in the public domain, and this left me and two other Ghanaian canons in the Diocese of Southwark with no other choice but to resign.

"This fills me with enormous sadness given my association with the Church in Ghana over some 17 years.

Consultation will consider giving Anglican Communion say in nomination of Archbishop of Canterbury

The proposal would increase the Anglican Communion representatives to five while reducing the number of members from the Diocese to three. As at present, there would also be nine other members from the Church of England, including six elected by General Synod.

The idea originated from the Diocese of Canterbury itself where the Diocesan Synod agreed a motion asking the Archbishops' Council to consider decrease the representation of the Diocese of Canterbury on future CNCs for the See of Canterbury.

meeting."

ACNA: Firm Hired to Investigate Allegations of Misconduct in Upper Midwest

The PRT developed a set of criteria, with input from some of the alleged survivors, to vet potential firms. The PRT then began the process of engaging potential investigators based upon those criteria, contacting eleven firms. Out of those contacted, the PRT determined two firms sufficiently met the selection criteria. All alleged survivors known to us were sent the names of these two firms and a summary description of each and were asked to vote or to indicate no preference.

St John's Nottingham: From Northwood to Nottingham - a history of 50 years. 1963-2013 274pp

Bishop Buchanan documents the process by which the London College of Divinity decided to move to be near the Nottingham University campus on land bought for a graduate college by the Church of England. The decision was prompted by the Church's requirement that graduate theological education be closely linked with a university. He also carefully records the changes of staff and development of courses over the next 50 years.

God and Guns. The Bible against American Gun Culture-- Part One

It is long past time for the sort of reasoned discussion (not emotive and irrational posturing), we find in this little book of essays. Why-- you ask? Well, the statistics do not lie, and here are a few of those assembled at the beginning of this book, and the sources for this data is impeccable, including the NIH, headed by Francis Collins, a very committed Christian medical expert.

The charge sheet read in court said that Waweru being a person in a position of authority persistently made sexual advances to J.N.M knowing or having reason to believe that such advances were not welcome by J.N.M.

He was charged with the second count of touching the breast of J.N.M indecently on July 13, 2021.

According to the police report, the accused person is said to have been sexually assaulting the woman since 2018.

Hundreds Sign Petition Asking ACNA for 'Survivor-Centric' Abuse Investigation

Several individuals who reported being sexually abused by Mark Rivera, a former lay minister in ACNA's Upper Midwest Diocese, have said leaders in the diocese repeatedly mishandled their allegations. On Aug. 28, ACNA announced an eight-member Provincial Response Team to oversee an investigation into the Upper Midwest Diocese's handling of the abuse allegations.

What if He Were a Known Swindler, Idolater, Drunkard, or Slanderer?

What makes Mr Knott's appointment particularly newsworthy is that he is to be made the gatekeeper for all bishops, deans, and other senior roles within the Church of England. He is a male in a same-sex "marriage" with the very modern Major General Alastair Bruce, Governor of Edinburgh Castle. Mr Knott and the Major General's "marriage" would not have been allowed in the Church of England. The ceremony received considerable press coverage last July as it was presided over by the Bishop of Edinburgh of the Scottish Episcopal Church.
