Anglican Cleric: Let Us Pray That Prince George Turns Out To Be Gay
Hotair ^ | 12/02/2017 | AllahPundit

You know gay-rights activism has gone goofy when the New York Times raises an eyebrow at it.

Some Christians attracted to the same sex try to “pray the gay away,” to the annoyance of LGBT advocates who believe orientation is inborn and that trying to “cure” homosexuality through prayer further stigmatizes it. Well, good news and bad news. The good news: Praying the gay away is out of vogue.

The bad news? Looks like we’re “praying the straight away” instead. In four-year-olds.

Mr. Holdsworth, the provost of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church, a separate province of the Anglican Communion that voted in June to let its priests solemnize same-sex marriages.

In his campaign to expand on that change, Mr. Holdsworth wrote in a blog post on Thursday that believers could “pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman.” Prince George is the elder child of Prince William and the former Catherine Middleton, now called the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily, though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen,” Mr. Holdsworth wrote. “Who knows whether that might be sooner than things might work out by other means.”

Little George is the future king of England, assuming the UK doesn’t wise up before he reaches adulthood and abolish the monarchy. I’m just a simple small-R republican atheist but isn’t his chief duty — or, really, only duty — as an adult procreation? He’s literally the one member of the royal family for whom it’s essential that he have biological children. And a female surrogate for him and his gay husband probably wouldn’t hack it, given the fact that he’s also destined to be head of a church.

Eh. By the time he’s of marriageable age, men will have wombs and bioengineered babies with two same-sex parents will be feasible. George could be the first king to marry a man and the first king to give birth to his own biological child. Imagine how trendy a royal gay shotgun wedding would be.

But in the meantime, maybe there are more important things for believers to talk to God about than the future sex life of a toddler, yes? If we’re going to pray the straight away, let’s do it for Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer. At least their male victims might be able to fight back when they’re assaulted.

Fun fact about Holdsworth, the Anglican minister so committed to his cause that he’s gaming out a pre-schooler’s romantic prospects: He got into trouble last year for holding a service that featured a reading from, uh, the Koran, including a passage about the birth of Jesus, who of course Muslims don’t believe was the son of God. It wasn’t the first time either, as the clip below from a 2014 service illustrates. Is Holdsworth a Christian or a member of the church of tolerance?

Mr. Holdsworth is likely a sexually confused pervert.

He’s not Christian, only posing as one. IMHO, he’s demon-possessed and a hand tool of Satan.

How about waking up to the terrorism and the fact that someone else has found wanting to your country?

“praying the straight away”
This explains, as much as anything insane can be explained, why the c*cks*ckers are forcing gaysissyfag propaganda on kids in school. To recruit for the cause! The more gaysissyfags there are, the more political power they have, and the more free benefits they get from the normal people!!

If Mr. Holdsworth can arrange to have the prince molested, he can probably get his wish - that often seems to work.

Gee, I’m so old, I can remember when clergy would pray for a child to grow up to be a Christian.

“Pray the gay away” at best can’t work in a vacuum.

It’s more like “Pray the straight in.” (And worship it in, which is why manly concepts of Jesus mean a whole lot.)

Once the straight that is in becomes a serious thing, it can boot the gay out.

Yeah... because the straight is largely what keeps the other stuff out.

Oh those secular liberalists. On the other hand I have to have some empathy even for them, because they often really don’t know what the sam hill they are doing.

Trying to TELL them what they are doing has some interesting consequences. One might be accused of any number of bizarre things. Oh you wickedly hate this, that, the other thing. Oh you follow such and such a cult. And so on.

But oh. The allergy to wholesome manhood (or womanhood) that can be thus bestowed is intense.

Family, parental dysfunctions can contribute to such allergies.

Famished nature will be avenged, however (hat tip to C. S. Lewis for that bon mot) and what he wouldn’t get through the ordinary means, he will get through “extraordinary means.” Which generally means some perversion.

The only real way to cut around that problem is to re-source one’s essence from God.
