Episcopal Church fires 61 priests and deacons in the Central Valley.

Unreal and disgusting. The liberal American Notre Dame Catholic church is headed down the same path.
so much for open minded tolerance.
They need to start their own denomination
Truer Christians would be hard to find..
The world upside down.
Amazing. All large churches have gone from saving souls and teaching the words of Christ and salvation to worrying about how to have an orgasm and with whom.

Ever notice that liberals have the reverse Midas touch? They destroy everything they get their hands on. The churches they’ve taken over have seen their memberships go way down. They took over theater, and theater is dying in this country. They took over public education in most places, and kids know less than ever.

Is there a mainline Protestant church that isn’t experiencing similar issues? Lucifer has been very successful infiltrating all of these organizations. Non-denominational churches seem to be flourishing these days.

That is a good point.
I suppose these priests should be grateful that they weren’t fed to the lions.
Sorry Eagle, your reply may be a little to nuanced for my tiny brain. To which do you refer as the "True Christians," the banned, or the banners?
Sorry. Should have been more specific. I am referring to the 61 priests who refused to compromise their faith for their positions. It’s easy to embrace Christ when there are no consequences for doing so. Sadly, most of the Church today would be resistant to relinquish the familiar and the comfortable for their faith.
Churches should remember what gay clergy did to the Catholic church.
