The Southern Province of the North American Old Catholic Church calls on bishops of the Roman sect to abandon their devisive and hate-filled attitude toward lesbian and gay people. The Roman bishops began a meeting on Monday (11/16/2009) in Baltimore, MD, and are expected to issue a major "pastoral letter" against equal rights for gay people.
"It is like they are telling their brothers and sisters: Thou Shalt Not Love," says Archbishop Wynn Wagner, the Regionary Bishop of the Southern Province USA of the North American Old Catholic Church (NAOCC). "They have forgotten the message of love, in their rush toward a notion of post-modernism."
The North American Old Catholic Church has called the month of November a Month of Prayer for those hurt by the Roman bishops' actions. The Old Catholic Church -- being closer to the ancient teachings of Christ -- does not consider gender or sexual orientation to be an impediment to any sacrament, including ordination and marraige.
"We call on adherents of the Roman sect to ignore the pronouncements of the later-day Pharisees," the archbishop continued. "They certainly don't speak for traditional Catholicism. Remember to pray for those bishops and those they hurt."
So the lady priest thinks Rome is a sect.
The woman priest is probably coming up with arguments defending Saddam’s use of rape and torture room.
the Roman sect
Garbage imitation ‘church’.
Is she a lesbian?
These people are N-V-T-S...nuts!
(a little Roman lingo there)
So do a lot of other nuts who have separated themselves by their own animus from the Church founded by Christ.
David Ferrie, of JFK assassination conspiracy fame, was an ‘ordained’ Old Catholic priest!
17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I do not understand the lack of clarity and descernment of spirits in the "Priests"
AAAAAARRRGH!!! This is not a Catholic Church. It was founded in 2007. I say again it was founded in 2007. They elected their own Bishops..... Yep, you quessed it, IN 2007!!! I can’t take it no mo. The Holy See, declares that homosexuals are welcome to worship in the Catholic Church. It’s as if... Dare I say it... The Catholic Church is eeeevil. One problem; No other entity gives more to the poor than Catholics. Well, maybe one. That would be America. I’m a proud member of both those parties.
Anal sex and related activities of same sex attracted couples is not only unorthodox in all that our Messiah taught, one has to lose all reason to embrace this damning behavior.
Using judgement, is not passing judgement. Where only our Savior can do the latter, we are all called on to do the first.
Repent, join the church and stop allowing a sexual proclivity decide your eternal disposition. Although we live in the natural, we are called to the supernatural.
Rise above the selfish desires and lustful urges and accept salvation. We must decrease and He must increase. It doesn’t work any other way.
See post 10.
Are you a stand-up philosopher? ;-P
Do try to refrain from pontificating on things of which you display a negative understanding.
Ratzinger didn’t call for “global authority”.
"Love thy neighbor as thyself" does NOT mean to boink him!
