SHAME: CHURCH OF ENGLAND COWERS, APOLOGIZES FOR CONDEMNING LGBT.
In a rather shameful turn of events on Friday, the Church of England officially tendered an apology letter to the LGBT community, for its treatment of gays.
Portions of the letter read: “We want to apologize for the way in which the Church of England has treated LGBTQI+ people — both those who worship in our churches and those who don’t.”
The decision, which is the outcome of five years of debate on the Church’s stance concerning same-sex practitioners, casts a humiliating dent on the 489-year-old church with a sworn mandate to uphold and promote the eternal and immutable word of God, which condemns such barbaric practice in the books of Genesis 19:1-11, Leviticus 18:22 and Romans 1:26-27.
Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, made this disclosure adding that in place of an official marriage—which remains restricted for same-sex partners—the Church will now consider the option of creating a special prayer for dedicating same-sex couples who have had a civil marriage or partnership. Welby claims the decision “would not please everyone.”
Same-sex marriage and its derivatives were legalized by the UK government in 2014. In a space of a decade, the movement has metamorphosed from a vulnerable group of moral misfits seeking validation to a rabid cluster of cancel culture protagonists on the manhunt for dissenting views while perpetrating the most despicable acts.
Sadly, the Church of England is the latest to cower, placing fear of worldly acceptance above heavenly approval. With the recent development, many fear the church is more interested in filling its pews and polishing its public perception than meeting the standards of heaven.
Headed by a generation of weak leaders, the global Christianity movement has suffered spiritual setbacks over the last decade. The Roman Catholic and Anglican denominations have failed to uphold the teachings of the Bible in the face of controversial issues.
In 2021, the Pope hinted at plans to rewrite the Bible to accommodate modern atrocities, forgetting that gay and lesbian practices, which have existed as a condemnable act for thousands of years, were one of the top reasons Sodom and Gomorrah became destroyed in the book of Genesis.
Come April 8, it would reach an official conclusion at its annual Synod meeting — another sad day for Christianity.
