All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

National Cathedral to perform same-sex weddings - Washington Times

What is happening in the National Cathedral is nothing short of a desecration. There simply is no other way to describe it. The Episcopal Church continues its slide into irrelevancy as a Christian denomination, leaving many of its faithful, not to mention its own clergy, out in the cold theologically. This ongoing deconstruction of the Episcopal Church in America and the Anglican Church in the UK is attributable directly to a lack of direction due to te non-existence of any central magisterial teaching authority. Theoretically, the King or Queen of England would be the head of the church, at least in England but that role along with any governmental role of the monarchy is now merely ceremonial. Happily many of those leaving that shepherdless fold are finding their way back home to the Catholic Church. Welcome home!

One thing (alright many things but one in particular) that Rev Edgar said really annoyed me:

"In light of the legality of same-sex marriage n the District f Columbia and now Maryland, the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, decided in December to allow an expansion of the Christian marriage sacrament."

Well isn't that just so special!

We are constantly being bombarded about the "separation" of Church and State, usually by people who have never even read the Constitution or they would know that this concept appears no where in the document. What does appear in it and is routinely ignored, particularly by this Administration, is unequivocal protection against what so blithely accepts, that civil law should be imposed on and supersede religious doctrine and trump Christian conscience..
