EDITOR’S NOTE: In a hopeful sign that the resistance to the globalist agenda is gathering steam, the Church of England, after refused to allow same-sex marriages to be blessed by its priests. I must say that all religious dogmas and denominations should refuse to bless what is not allowed by the rules of nature. This does not mean we have room in our hearts for hatred against anyone; but there are eternal rules in religious institutions and they should not be thrown aside in favor of any novelty. When they are thrown by the wayside, we end up with phenomena like “trangenderism” prevailing in education and elsewhere…
Church of England refuses to allow priests to perform same-sex marriages
The Church of England is officially the state church of England, but not the entire United Kingdom, and King Charles III is its supreme governor.
The Church of England has rejected the blessing of same-sex marriages within the denomination following a six-year internal review of its policies on sexuality.
The Church’s General Synod will meet in February and review proposals that its bishops outlined on Wednesday. Said proposals would permit services to offer “prayers of dedication, thanksgiving or for God’s blessing on the couple” in a church following a civil marriage, which is legal in the United Kingdom.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby indicated that the church expected the proposals to ruffle some feathers in both the church’s conservative and progressive wings.
“I am under no illusions that what we are proposing today will appear to go too far for some and not nearly far enough for others, but it is my hope that what we have agreed will be received in a spirit of generosity, seeking the common good,” he said, per the outlet.
It is further part of the wider Anglican Communion, which includes many churches in other nations worldwide. In the United States, the Episcopal Church represents the bloc. That church does permit its priests to perform same-sex marriages.
So only Anglican Church in Great Britain refuses blessing gay marriage —
but it’s allowed in USA;
good for Great Britain!🇬🇧
King Charles represents Church of England.
I pray his connection to Mount Athos monks + his grandmother who became an Orthodox nun will enlighten him to stand firm.
I wrote why I was against legalizing gay marriage in The National Herald years ago bc I intuit it’d open a Pandora’s box + it has.
So many Ex Episcopalians have left their Church to join Eastern Orthodoxy but only to be disenchanted by Greek one…
& sad even Bishop Kalistos Ware
sold out to gay marriage; intellect is a
double sword for despite his great intellect, Bishop Kalistos didn’t rise to heights of
Elder Porphyrios or Paisios little education
Christ, our Lord put His righteous hand on Great Britain. If King Charles had anything to do with this, then; I have a whole new respect for him.
Yes Larissa I hope so bc King Charles is part Orthodox and has Orthodox elders. Amazing.
Zoey, I am confused. How can someone be part Orthodox? Please explain this phenomenon.
Well King Charles I’ve read many times is half Greek Orthodox bc of Prince Philip who’s mother became Greek Orthodox nun…
he has that Orthodox connection and travels yearly to monasteries in Greece…
as King of Great Britain, he only represents the Church of England and the Church of Scotland.
Zoey, you can’t be both. Jesus said, “you can’t serve 2 master because you will love one and hate the other”.
