Posted on 10/01/2012 6:05:57 PM PDT by Morgana
This past weekend, a pro-life protestor was booed at a D.C. church for attempting to ask Kathleen Sebelius a question regarding the HHS contraception mandate at a forum following the church service.
Brandi Swindell [pictured right], National Director of Generation Life, a pro-life group dedicated to mobilizing activists, students, artists, musicians and young professionals to end abortion and spread the message of sexual integrity, told WND that she had a divine appointment in Washington today.
Three of us chose to attend church at St. Johns this morning, Swindell said, and at the last minute found out that Kathleen Sebelius, the architect of the HHS Mandate, was holding an adult forum between services.
Swindell told WND that she got the secretarys attention, and in front of a packed auditorium asked her, Why are you forcing the American people to pay for abortion-inducing drugs that harm women? Its a severe violation of religious freedom.
The secretary ignored the question and left the stage
It might be, I don’t know.
Waggs do you have any idea?
The Episcopal Church is no longer a Christian denomination. It is a Communist-front run by Communist to advance Communism in America and around the globe. The people in the pews are dedicated Communists for the most part — call them Communists who enjoy socializing at once-prominent parishes and lovers of ceremony for ceremony’s sake.
Sermons at parishes like St. John’s in the wicked Diocese of Washington are invariably Communist and multicultural and homosexualist rants, distorting Scripture like only Satan can do. One Episcopal dean of a “seminary” — a flaming dyke — calls abortion a holy sacrament. I kid you not. This people are pure, unadulturated evil who have stolen the funds of Christians ancestors to wage war against our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and God Almighty Himself. They belong in Hell — the sooner the better.
waggs do you have a clue? How about you LJ?
In their own words, St. John’s is a, “. . . historic protestant Episcopal church located across from the White House.”
St John (Episcopagan)
I find it very consistent that churchgoers would boo her. After all, the Episcopagans were the first Protestant denomination to give an official blessing to the use of artificial contraceptives (1935 Lambeth Conference).
I suspected it was the Episcopagan one, just did not want to jump to conclusions.
Yes the “abortion is a sacrament” kinda gives them away, don’t it?
Care to apologize for your rash judgment and potty language, or aren’t you man/woman enough??
Speaking the truth in an Episcopal Church!! I bet there was more than the former Kansas Governor squirming in their skin.
If this is the St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House, I attended a worship service there on January 19, 1969. The service was magisterial and liturgical, in the Episcopalian tradition. I’m sure it is a very liberal church today.
Sounds as though our current president would find a spiritual home at St. Johns if he wanted to.
If I should find myself once again in DC on a Sunday, I'll have to find another place to worship.
That would be an improvement over what D.C. is now.
Seriously, why is anyone be against protecting life?
I spit on D.C.!
LOL, that makes me think of my late grandfather, a Primitive Baptist. He said Episcopalians look upon the truth like a fart at a funeral. That was over forty years ago.
Now, now, now, it's a perfectly reasonable assumption. Who would have thought that an Episcopagan church would have been named after a saint. After all, it's not like there are any Lutheran St Johns, or Methodist St Johns, or Presbyterian St Johns, or Baptist St Johns, or UCC St Johns. Why, of course, when one hears "St. John's," one would, of course, think Catholic.
Apparently so. Look at their Forum schedule:
September 30 -- The Honorable Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services.
"Has the Catholic Church refused to give the Sacrement to Nancy Pelosi or John Kerry recently?"
LOL. It figures, just more of the same old, worn out, noise.
But, that's Ok. I understand that pointing out Catholics who behave just like Protestants is the only way some people have of avoiding the fact that the majority of Protestants are no longer Christian.
The US is now and always has been overwhelmingly Protestant.
Why not step up, take a bow, and accept a share of the credit for helping to build the wonderful Protestant society the Protestant majority has created in this country?
Oh, and by the by, both those folks have been told not to bother trying to take Communion in various parts of the country by a number of Bishops. Including now Cardinal Burke. I'm sure they can find some priest or bishop who wants to be Protestant in all but name and will permit them to partake, though.
You know, the sort people who if Protestant would deliver the prayer at the King Barry coronation or run a mega church that doesn't see anything wrong with queers marrying one another. That sort of priest and bishop can't stand being in the minority in this overwhelmingly Protestant nation and so they behave like Protestants in hopes of being accepted by the majority.
Fortunately for the majority of folks who claim to be Protestant Christians, they have no need to dig up a liberal priest since they're each their own highest authority. They would never deny themselves communion, nor would they deny themselves contraception, abortion, queer pastors, queer weddings, or anything else MTV and Hollyweird tell them is "the thing to do".
have a nice day
Well, not necessarily reasonable, but when I was young its what I thought. Catholics are into saints, the reasoning goes, so a church named after a saint is probably Catholic. Childish, perhaps, but no reason to think there was any ill intent. As a young Baptist, there was just us versus all those formal, liturgical places. Hillbilly Baptist, mind you. many transplants from Kentucky and Tennessee. My dad took us there because the Methodists had gone liberal. That was half a century ago. Sigh. Good times. Where I learned to love the Scriptures. Good people.
My goodness. It must really offend your sensibilities to reside in this country. There are majority Catholic countries in the world, you know. Maybe you should expatriate to one.
You need to get out more. If that’s your view of American Christianity apart from Rome, you’re welcome to it, but It’s not what I grew up with. What you just described sounds more like my Catholic relatives in the Chicago area. They pushed abortion and a life of misery on someone I dearly love. No. I don’t generalize against the whole Catholic membership because of that bad experience. The Lord knows those that are his. Just saying that hearing the stereotypes that tear down people who love the same God and the same Jesus and mostly the same Bible, well, I’m not sure who that edifies. But your stereotypes do not match the reality for a whole lot of people. That’s why I try to avoid them. Stereotypes, that is. I’m ok with people. :)
