Leader of the Episcopal church declares that the Apostle Paul is a bigot and gay marriage will lead to the kingdom of God

Female Episcolpal/Anglican leader, Katharine Jefferts Schori, deeclares the Apostle Paul is a bigot and denigrates Western Civilization.

Katharine Jefferts Schori is the first female head of the American Episcopal church and the first female elected as a primate of the Anglican Communion.

Speaking in Venezuala, Katharine Jefferts Schori denounced the Apostle Paul. She appears to be attacking Paul as pro-slavery and anti-homosexual. She insinuated that all cultures around the world are equal, thus devaluing Christianity.

She said that the “only road to the kingdom of God” is for man to change his way and accept gay marriage and multiculturalism.

Gee, why are the Episcopal and Anglican churches rapidly losing members and dying out?

From Anglican Ink…

The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church has denounced the Apostle Paul as mean-spirited and bigoted for having released a slave girl from demonic bondage as reported in Acts 16:16-34 .

In her sermon delivered at All Saints Church in Curaçao in the diocese of Venezuela, Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori condemned those who did not share her views as enemies of the Holy Spirit.

The presiding bishop opened her remarks with an observation on the Dutch slave past. “The history of this place tells some tragic stories about the inability of some to see the beauty in other skin colors or the treasure of cultures they didn’t value or understand,” she said.

She continued stating: “Human beings have a long history of discounting and devaluing difference, finding it offensive or even evil.  That kind of blindness is what leads to oppression, slavery, and often, war.  Yet there remains a holier impulse in human life toward freedom, dignity, and the full flourishing of those who have been kept apart or on the margins of human communities.”

Just as the forces of historical inevitability led to the ending of industrial slavery, so too would the march of progress lead to a change in attitude towards homosexuality, she argued.

“We live with the continuing tension between holier impulses that encourage us to see the image of God in all human beings and the reality that some of us choose not to see that glimpse of the divine, and instead use other people as means to an end.  We’re seeing something similar right now in the changing attitudes and laws about same-sex relationships, as many people come to recognize that different is not the same thing as wrong.  For many people, it can be difficult to see God at work in the world around us, particularly if God is doing something unexpected.”

In support her argument for radical inclusion and diversity over doctrine Bishop Jefferts Schori adds that the day’s reading “from Revelation pushes us in the same direction, outward and away from our own self-righteousness, inviting us to look harder for God’s gift and presence all around us.  Jesus says he’s looking for everybody, anyone who’s looking for good news, anybody who is thirsty.  There are no obstacles or barriers – just come.  God is at work everywhere, even if we can’t or won’t see it immediately.”

She concluded her sermon by stating that we are not justified by our faith but by our respect for diversity.

“Looking for the reflection of God’s glory all around us means changing our lenses, or letting the scales on our eyes fall away.  That kind of change isn’t easy for anyone, but it’s the only road to the kingdom of God.”

Joe Biden: Jews led fight for homosexual marriage, open borders, feminism, and more

Vice President Joe Biden

Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United State praised American Jews for playing leading roles in the fight for homosexual marriage, open borders, feminism, “social justice,” and more. Biden said that Jews were one of the biggest factors, if not the single biggest, driving social change in the United States.

Speaking at the Jewish Heritage Month reception of the Democratic National Committee, Joe Biden credited Jewish people in Hollywood for changing the culture of America. He said Jews are responsible for 85% of America’s changing attitude on homosexual marriage. “Think — behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry.”

“Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us, us, me – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact,” said Biden.

Joe Biden also credited Jews with playing a major role in the feminist movement and changing America’s immigration policies to allow for massive third world immigration. Biden also praised Jews for playing a leading role in getting the Civil Rights Acts passed that mandated affirmative action policies and special privileges for minorities.

Speaking on Jewish political power, Biden stated ”the Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you.”

Biden also praised all three Jewish Supreme Court justices by name. Biden ended his twenty minute speech to Jewish leaders by saying “we owe you, we owe generations who came before you.”

New York Magazine: Biden is correct, but talking about it is bad for Jews that he said it.
