"Proclaiming the Love of God, Not the Tyranny of God"

Thanks to Trinity Wall Street (and h/t to Episcopal Cafe) for this great little dose of Michael Curry -- making a fabulous case for the Episcopal Church's witness to God's inclusive love in an interfaith world:

"...not the tyranny of God." Well here we go again, proclaiming heresy! I can hardly wait to hear the howls at a virtue-free site.

FWIW

So this means you have, what, 4% non-white membership?

I'm not sure what you're asking but I suspect it's 96% a racist question.

The Body of Christ is 'in the World, but not of the World', is [holy] and Set Apart from the World. Increasingly a difficult place to be in-- as the Church is being attacked from every angle. We don't need to spend any time trying to conform to this World and trying to figure out every little blip on the radar screen of Culture --and you will never arrive anyway. Quite the opposite. Jesus said, Do not conform to this World.

As we are being mocked, ridiculed and laughed at by the World,[Kathy Griffin] then we know we must be doing something right in God's eyes. [It's clear what she says about Jesus Christ, she's not shy about it -- she hates Him.]
