Transgendered priest to give sermon at Washington National Cathedral

The Washington National Cathedral is welcoming the first openly transgendered Episcopal priest to its altar this month.

The Rev. Cameron Partridge, a transgendered man, is set to give the June 22 sermon at the cathedral, a fixture in the D.C. skyline and one of the nation’s most well-known houses of worship.

“We at Washington National Cathedral are striving to send a message of love and affirmation, especially to LGBT youth who suffer daily because of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” Mr. Hall said. “We want to proclaim to them as proudly and unequivocally as we can: Your gender identity is good and your sexual orientation is good because that’s the way that God made you.”

Mr. Partridge is the Episcopal chaplain at Boston University and a lecturer and counselor for Episcopal and Anglican students at the Harvard Divinity School. He completed his transition to male in 2001, according to Boston University, and has a wife and two children.

Rev. Hall also announced that the Right Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal priest, would be presiding the same service with Mr. Partridge. He retired from his post as a bishop in New Hampshire and now works at the Center for American Progress.

The service caps two weeks of LGBT advocacy for the cathedral. It participated in this year’s Capital Pride events, and Mr. Hall said the service would include readings by local LGBT community members.

Last year the National Cathedral made headlines when its leaders announced that the church would perform same-sex marriages.

Not one scripture mentioned.

Guess this false religion would condemn Jesus for telling the adulterous woman she should sin no more.

After Dubya’s reelection, I heard the commie lib ‘RATS saying that they were going to take over the religious voting base in this country. I laughed nervously at the time. I never dreamed they’d use their sexual deviants to pull it off and actually get away with it.

“transgendered” is just a BS 1984 newspeak way of avoiding the term “sex change”.

Whet used to be a national house of worship is name a place of apostasy.

Mental illness is not an attractive trait in a religious leader.

“Your gender identity is good and your sexual orientation is good because that’s the way that God made you.

It wants us to believe that God is responsible for their perversion, not sin.

It is not a transgendered anything. It is a surgically mutilated man or woman.

Sorry, until she manages to change from XY to XX, she’s still a confused woman.

And they can keep proclaiming that lesson of love and tolerance and acceptance of all (no matter what)—straight to the bottom of the pit of hell.

Yup. And it isn't love to affirm their mental illness any more than it is love to keep enabling an alcoholic or a druggie in their habit.

Real love would be getting them out of their fantasy world.

Well, I really got that wrong.

She needs to change from XX to XY in order to be male and that’s not happening anytime soon.

It’s Monday, what can I say.
