Transgendered priest to give sermon at Washington National Cathedral
http://m.washingtontimes.com/ ^ | 06/09/2014 | Meredith Somers

Posted on 06/09/2014 12:18:09 PM PDT by massmike

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”.

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

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.

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

Yes it is. However, is IS impossible to change genders.

A "transgendered" male does NOT become female, so matter how much silicon he puts in places. He'll never have a uterus, clitoris, vagina, vaginal tract or mammary glands.
He is just a GELDING with a "twin" silicon chest.

I wonder if hair grows on his implants. Lol. Boy would that be ooogly.

He WILL age like a man: receding hairline, hair in his ears and long nose hair.

He's not the first transgender I've seen. The one I used to see was a fireman who wanted to be a woman. He changed his name to a woman's name, wore dresses and a HORRIBLE blond wig. However, he still had all the man-muscles, the hairy legs, arms and face.

HORRIBLE thought: transgender causing "beard burn" to his latest lover. Ugh.

I think that all this pandering to the LGBT peoples will tear denominations and churches apart.

Churches are starting to confront how to deal with homosexuality and LGBT matters. We are normalizing homosexual marriage in our civil laws. But as of now, a major bulwark against this trend has been organized religions.

If some denominations cave in and start doing homosexual marriages, I predict that they will lose many members, who will exit to find one of the remaining Bible believing churches.

As someone said on another thread, why is homosexuality special? If we were talking about any other sinful behanior, we would not be telling people that God made you that way, so go ahead and keep sinning. Yet on the sin of homosexual behavior, that’s the direction we’re headed.

Of course it will, that’s the whole point. Forcing our society to pretend that “transgenderism” is normal is just one more step in the dismantling of our Judeo-Christian culture.

All that faith in God and belief in right and wrong makes it difficult to institute tyranny.

There WILL be a reckoning.

How sad for his family, friends and parishioners.

Are there NO consequences for him?
Has he NO one to whom he must report or be accountable to?
Is there NO bishop to de-frock him?

Well, the Episcopalian part goes without saying... unless the writer was afraid folks might assume this was another Unitarian clergy-person.

From Google: Unitarianism is a theological movement, named for its understanding of God as one person, in direct contrast to Trinitarianism, which defines God as three persons coexisting consubstantially as one being.

Unitarians maintain that Jesus is in some sense the "son" of God, but not the one God. Unitarianism is also known for the rejection of several other conventional Christian doctrines, including the soteriological doctrines of original sin and predestination, and, in more recent history, biblical inerrancy.
In J. Gordon Melton's Encyclopedia of American Religions it is classified among "the 'liberal' family of churches".

soteriological: Soteriology (Greek: σωτηρία sōtēria "salvation" from σωτήρ sōtēr "savior, preserver" + λόγος logos "study" or "word") is the study of religious doctrines of salvation. Salvation theory occupies a place of special significance and importance in many religions.

=======================================

So, they don't believe that Jesus is our Savior either. Well, He wouldn't be since they don't think that He is the Son of God.
Tsk. I live and learn.

Well, that’s true. It may help clarify for people which are true Bible believing churches, and which ones want to prove how liberal and “with it” they are. It would be a giant red flag if a church talks about how they perform homosexual marriages.

Desecration:

” the act of depriving something of its sacred character, or the disrespectful or contemptuous treatment of that which is held to be sacred or holy by a group or individual”

This describes the Episcopal Church today....so no wonder they "celebrate" and promote the homosexual agenda, and every other sexual perversion within it's walls and without..... They are not ashamed to proclaim their perversion, and show no need to humble themselves and reflect upon their filth.

Ezekiel 16:50 says,..... “And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me.

Genesis 13:13 says,..... “But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.”

Romans 1:26-32. .......“Women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise the men leaving the natural use of the women. ....Being 'filled with sexual immorality' , wickedness, full of envy, murder, deceit and evil-mindedness.... Proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents.... Untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmercifull. .....The righteous judgement of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only 'do' the same but ALSO APPROVE OF THOSE WHO PRACTICE THEM.”
