October 03 2019 By virtueonline ROWAN WILLIAMS: Anglican Communion is no more, we are now an Anglican Family

"I am saying 'Anglican family' rather than 'Anglican Communion' because we're a very fractured communion but we're still family -- like so many families, quarreling till the cows come home," he said. "What gives us our family solidarity is, of course, that dependence on God's call, God's welcome.

September 24 2019 By virtueonline Episcopal House of Bishops Agonize over Attending Lambeth 2020

But no, the HOB meeting in Minneapolis this week wanted everyone to feel their pain of exclusion, and then whine, cajole and somehow let it be known that the grand "doctrine" of inclusion was under siege. They wanted to let Justin Welby know that their faux outrage could not be ignored. Oh, the pain! They did everything short of rending their cassocks and declare themselves out of communion with Canterbury. But it was not to be.

September 21 2019 By virtueonline Kangaroo Court will Try, Convict and Depose a Godly Orthodox Episcopal Bishop

Bishop Love's "sin" is that he dared to stand up and say that God does not, nor has He ever approved of sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman and for his faithful stand he will get the equivalent of a beheading, or be burnt at the stake. Thomas Cranmer would be proud of him. He also said that diocesan canons trump General Convention resolutions, a heresy that shrieks for correction. His execution will be done with all the high-sounding nomenclature of inclusion.

September 20 2019 By virtueonline Seminarians Worship Creature rather than Creator

VOL: I am here to worship plant life now that you have okayed that plants will forgive me my sins.
I want to make sure there are appropriate plants that I can worship.

SEMINARIAN: What sort of sort of plant do you have in mind, Dr. Virtue?

VOL: Preferably cactus.

SEMINARIAN: Why cactus?

September 18 2019 By virtueonline America's Gaystapo Receives Three Serious Setbacks

The left has already won with the Obergefell ruling, a landmine ruling that not even President Trump has dared to publicly step on or tweet about, even though he has addressed the abortion issue with public acclamation from evangelicals.

The deeper truth is that any criticism of homosexual behavior already proscribed by mainline churches and leftist elites would suddenly now be met with hate "crime" charges resulting in heavy fines and jail time.

September 06 2019 By virtueonline The Decline and Fall of the Church in Wales

In Sept. 2014, I headlined a story, "The Washed-Up World of the Anglican Church of Wales." In it I quoted the Anglican Archbishop of Wales, the Most Rev. Dr. Barry Morgan, as saying that he would resist the founding of another province with every fiber of his body. He was, of course, alluding to the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). He made this statement at the 2009 Virginia Annual Council.

August 27 2019 By virtueonline African Anglicans are the future of the Anglican Communion

Welby is either acting like he doesn't know what is really going on, or he knows what is going on and believes he can win over evangelicals and Anglo-Catholics.

But the die has been cast and he cannot stop the flow of history which is away from Canterbury and Lambeth Palace and better located in say, Abuja or even Jerusalem.
