FROM TITUSONENINE: Archbishop of Canterbury condemns recent violence against lesbian and gay people
Posted by Kendall Harmon
(ACNS) In response to reports of violence and threats towards Christians involved in the debate on human sexuality, the Archbishop of Canterbury has given the following statement:“The threats recently made against the leaders of Changing Attitudes are disgraceful. The Anglican Communion has repeatedly, through the Lambeth Conference and the statements from its Primates’ Meetings, unequivocally condemned violence and the threat of violence against gay and lesbian people. I hope that this latest round of unchristian bullying will likewise be universally condemned.”
This needs to be said repeatedly in the current environment--KSH.
Sadly, the Stand Firmites don't appear to be agreement with the Gentleman from South Carolina ... and instead of condemning the violence are "Calling Out" the victims ...
Shall not be justifying that with further response -- suffice to say:
- Pray for all those who are victims of violence
- AND pray for those whose blindness to the oppressive systems that foster violence against ANY member of the human family prevents them from responding to Our Lord's call to be peacemakers.
