In a vote that surprises absolutely no one who can read, the Episcopal Organization officially approved homosexual marriage. Blah, blah, blah. If you have the stomach for it, wander over to Twitter and search for the #GC77 hashtag. Some of those people actually seem to think they’re William Wilberforce and not rich, white members of a tiny, declining universalist sect that stopped influencing much of anyone decades ago.
What’s next for those wacky Episcopalians? If this reaction from Kendall Harmon is any indication of Palmetto State sentiment, I suspect TEO may temporarily suspend its search for the next oppressed “sexuality” in favor of redoubling its efforts to finally and forever rid itself of the last bastion of anything approaching Christian traditionalism remaining in the Episcopal Organization:
This General Convention action is unbiblical, unchristian, unanglican and unseemly. It will further wreak havoc among Anglicans, and indeed Christians, in North America and around the world.
By making this decision, The Episcopal Church moves further away from Jesus Christ and his teaching. It thereby makes it necessary for the diocese of South Carolina to take further decisive and dramatic action to distance itself from this false step.
We in South Carolina must differentiate to stay loyal to Christ, but also to keep our own parish members and not hinder the mission of Jesus Christ who loves all and transforms all by the power of the Holy Spirit to holiness of life, a holiness which has a clear shape agreed by Christians East and West throughout 20 centuries.
Time to start arming Charleston Harbor. The Star of the West just put to sea.
