August 20 2019 By virtueonline Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Roman Catholic Church just as Rampant in Church of England

"There are a number of serving bishops who stand accused of turning a blind eye to chronic sexual abuse by other members of the clergy. There are allegations of collusion, manipulation and complicity in cover-up for reputational preservation, and even of cover-up of the cover-up. And the evidence is persuasive and damning.

August 09 2019 By virtueonline America is at War with Itself

Some incontrovertible facts:

America is 4.4% of the world's population and owns 42% of all the guns.

Ninety percent of the mass shooters are single, alienated, white males, not blacks or Muslims.

Mexico, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Morocco are safer countries to live in than the US. None of them allow the personal ownership of assault rifles.

August 07 2019 By virtueonline CONCEPTION, MO: Eight Catholic priests credibly accused of abusing children includes former Episcopal priest, Bede Parry

How was it possible that a former Roman Catholic priest who had admitted to repeated abuse of minors under his care and who agreed to be laicized could have been received into TEC as a priest, was startling.

Now, if the boot was on the other foot (as it was in the Episcopal Church) where queer marriages are the norm, opposition to such "marriages" was met with the harshest of punishments.

Meanwhile, the Communion Partner bishops remain steadfastly silent in the face of this clear persecution of one of their own. Former jailed Maryland bishop Heather Cook had more friends in jail, than Bishop Bill Love has on the outside.
