Yet another heretic priestess

Here’s the new Dean of the Episcopal Divinity School:

And when a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion – there is not a tragedy in sight — only blessing. The ability to enjoy God’s good gift of sexuality without compromising one’s education, life’s work, or ability to put to use God’s gifts and call is simply blessing.

These are the two things I want you, please, to remember – abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Let me hear you say it: abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done. Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.

I want to thank all of you who protect this blessing – who do this work every day: the health care providers, doctors, nurses, technicians, receptionists, who put your lives on the line to care for others (you are heroes — in my eyes, you are saints); the escorts and the activists; the lobbyists and the clinic defenders; all of you. You’re engaged in holy work.

You know, I’m not really a pro-life guy, though I’m being led that way. But I’m very much an anti-heresy kind of guy. And historically, the Church has never been pro-abortion. And this is pro-abortion, not pro-choice.

At St. James, we pray for “the conversion of England”. I suppose that public prayer for the conversion of ECUSA might be politically outrageous. But from your mouth to God’s ear….

  2. […] “mere Christianity” and have to wonder what they’re teaching in their seminaries. Oh yeah…that. And it’s funny that both of today’s clueless are female. Maybe the Anglican Catholics […]
