Dr. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity Church, testified at a House hearing on March 8, 2012 against a bill that would make it a federal crime to transport minor girls without parental consent across state lines to get an abortion.

It doesn’t sound like she takes her job or her religion very seriously. A PINO. Priest in name only.

First of all she must not be familiar with 1 Timothy 3:2. Second of all, she seems to have little or no compassion for the unborn, something that every Christian has buried in their heart.

Let her speak now and forever condemn herself.

The truth: She wants as many abortions as possible because half of all abortions are black mothers aborting their children. The others are simply collateral damage to her goal of eliminating the black race.

NH has a new parental notification law. MASS has such a law.
http://hotair.com/archives/2011/06/23/new-hampshire-lawmakers-pass-abortion-parental-notification-bill-over-veto/

Hartford, CT is the destination for Springfield MA abortion-seekers with a youth. No parental notification in CT. A mere 20-minute ride.

So this is a real deal situation, not a hypothetical discussion.

If a parent, finds out a stranger,,took their minor daughter, out of the state, to get an abortion. And the plan is to drop off daughter at home like nothing happened. Realizing that means you wouldn’t know to watch for depression. You might think a fever was a flu,, not a lethal infection. etc etc,,,

If someone took such a risk with my daughter,,,,,,

Wouldn't she be committing a felony anyway, for abortion purposes or not? I mean transporting a minor across state lines for any reason without parental permission.

Or, wouldn't the parents have rock solid grounds to sue this false apostless into oblivion?

If it was my daughter and I found out that she did, It would be the last minor in this world that she would help get an abortion.

She would break the law, override a parent and thinks abortion is a blessing. She is no Priest.

2009 NOW National Conference: Conference Speakers
An Episcopal priest and open lesbian, the Rev. Dr. Katherine Ragsdale was named president and dean of Episcopal Divinity School in March of this year.

Open Lesbian, Pro-Abortion, Priest, what freaking Bible is she reading?

What kind of church is it that not only allows a person like this to function as clergy, but puts her in charge of training other clergy? What a perverse time we live in.

I went to the website for the Episcopal Divinity School, and it will come as no surprise to you, that Jesus Christ’s name was not included on ANY of the web pages. Does that answer your question of what kind of church would allow this?

Seriously, I would bet that an pro-abortion, open lesbian, priest, is leading more people toward satan, rather than Jesus.

Obviously none. She is not a believer in any way, obviously, and never was. She simply infiltrated and corroded this place in order to wreck the Episcopal church. Alinsky/Obama 101: Find an enemy (Christianity), freeze it and annihilate it.

I would have thought that the school’s site would have at least gone through the motions of mentioning him once but considering what the Episcopal Church has become, I guess I’m not surprised.

Well, Ms. not-Reverend Ragsdale, will you also be responsible when and if that young girl you procured an abortion for without her parents knowledge or permission develops complications from that abortion - which STILL happens more often than acknowledged? Will you pay her hospital bills when her uterus is punctured and she nearly bleeds to death? How about when she develops a serious infection afterward and must have treatment? Should her parents NOW have to step forward and shoulder the cost of something they did not approve? Will you be there when the reality of what she has done finally hits her and she grows to hate herself so much she seeks to drown the feeling in drugs, alcohol, more sex, an "atonement" baby, or suicide? Or how about ten years down the line when she finally wants a baby and she finds out her illegal abortion has made her sterile? Will you still be there for her or will you have long forgotten about her because what you REALLY care about more than THAT young girl's psychological, emotional and physical health is your political agenda?

You say you speak as a woman of God? Your god is a demon called Baal or Molech. Read all about him in the Old Testament of your Bible. You still have a Bible, right?

I wonder by what sick, evil convoluted reasoning she excuses herself from reporting the statutory rape of a minor, but feels entirely justified to assist in murdering the innocent infant?

But we must not question the moral judgements of a homosexual priest(ess), lest we be called intolerant or homophobic by his/her/its congregation and their supporters!

Congress has not yet asked me to testify.
I wonder what their reaction would be if I claimed the intent to break the law, and execute both the rapist and the false priestess, to help the minor and the baby?

As Rush says, Feminism is her religion and abortion is their (not-so-) holy sacrament.
Would you deny her the free practice of her religion? /sarc

This feels like the right time to propose a “compromise” on the abortion issue. How about allowing liberals to kill their offspring, but only their offspring, by any means and at any time from conception to the, ah, child’s fortieth birthday? This should satisfy their bloodlust....

Not only is she openly Lesbian and “married” to her partner (according to her bio), she promotes abortion and sterilization - and is head OF THE EPISCOPAL DIVINITY SCHOOL!

The Episcopal Church should shut its doors immediately.

Good question. Are they planning to have a human smuggling "coyote" testify to say he'll keep bringing juvenile illegals into America regardless of the law, because it's a "rights" issue? How about Woody Harrelson testifying that he will continue to smoke and grow marijuana against the law because he has a right to and so do teenagers? Why does Congress need ANYONE to testify to breaking laws unless it is to force them to negate the laws? Then you have a states rights issue that the Supreme Court will be forced to address.

What's next, making rape legal? People still rape other people so let's legalize it? Heck why not make bank robbing legal? Why not letting homeless people live free in bank-owned foreclosed houses? Wait... they ARE doing that now. It used to be called trespassing or squatting. Now it's legal?

“Why does Congress need ANYONE to testify to breaking laws unless it is to force them to negate the laws?”

You said it better than I could. Negate parental responsibility, which is essential to any functioning society, while trivializing the Rule of Law by allowing “the right kind of people”, like a busybody lesbian priest (coll) to take the pregnant daughter of some nobody to an abortion mill. Deconstructionism.

Dr. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass. recalled the time she took a 15-year-old girl she had never met before to get an abortion.

LOL, that is one sick pig right there!

I am not into judging others .....much.However if she was really at peace with God and her chosen profession and felt that her sexuality elevated it,she’d be less of a clam and more of a composed and peaceful individual.

Instead she comes off as detrimental towards both her chosen profession and her chosen sexuality although I am going to guess that not many women would choose to get know her that well.

The Episcopalians seem to be attached directly to Satan's teat these days. Ever since they elevated that homosexual Robinson to bishop, the slope has steepened.
