I would never attend the Episcopal Church as a Christian. They have turned the gospel upside down on its head. Rev. Thomas Brown, who is married to a fellow priest, was ordained as a bishop of the diocese of Maine in the Episcopal Church June 22. Immediately following his ordination, Brown referred to God as a “she” twice in the Nicene Creed. I guess I’m old school… but I refer to God as a ‘he’. His gender doesn’t matter to me but his commandments and directives surely do.
“She is worshipped and glorified. She has spoken through the Prophets,” the just-ordained Bishop Brown stated, referring to the Holy Spirit. I find that offensive and nothing short of political pandering. The Nicene Creed was written 1,638 years ago and only uses masculine pronouns to refer to God. Oddly enough, the microphones at the Cathedral of St. Luke put forth Bishop Curry’s voice just fine for most of the creed, except for when he referred to God as a ‘she’.
From The Daily Caller:
“Deacon Todd Thomas of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington told the Daily Caller that he has never heard an Episcopal priest use female pronouns in the creed. Individual bishops and priests can, however, change words and phrases in the Nicene Creed, Deacon Thomas explained. He cautioned any changes to the creed should be done “in conversation” with the lay people.
“Deacon Thomas told the Daily Caller he has heard Episcopal priests use female pronouns for God outside of the context of official creeds.
“The Episcopal church has a tradition of interpreting the Book of Proverbs’ mentions of “Lady Wisdom” as referring to the Holy Spirit, Deacon Thomas said.
“Inclusive language” of God is encouraged by the Episcopal Church. This “means the use of male and female imagery and metaphors in a balanced way to express the truths we know of God,” the Episcopal Dictionary of the Church says.
“Bishop Brown describes himself as a “servant leader who strives for justice among all people and who continues to address white privilege, dismantle racism, and work for the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in the Body of Christ.”
“The bishop met his husband, Father Tom Mousin, when Father Mousin was serving as a pastor in the United Methodist Church. Brown’s husband has since converted to the Episcopal Church, and been ordained in that church.
“It is possible that Father Mousin will take up a position at a parish in his husband’s diocese, he said on Facebook, explaining he would have oversight from an outside bishop.”

In 2018, the Episcopal Church mandated that all dioceses would perform same-sex marriages. It doesn’t matter whether the bishop objects or not, they are commanded to conduct the ceremony. William Love, the Episcopal bishop of Albany, New York is in a state of partial inhibition because he has declined to allow priests to celebrate same-sex weddings. In other words, he’s between a rock and a hard place over his church’s doctrine.
More from The Daily Caller:
“Twenty years before this resolution, Episcopal bishops at the Lambeth Conference rejected “homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.” They also voted that they “cannot advise the legitimizing or blessing of same-sex unions nor ordaining those involved in same gender unions.”
“A wider battle is brewing in the denomination over the subject of gay marriage. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby faces opposition from the Global Anglican Future Conference for inviting bishops in same-sex relationships to the last Lambeth Conference. At the same time, Episcopal church leaders have objected to Welby’s decision to not invite bishops’ same-sex spouses to the conference.
“Bishop Brown’s ordination is the second time a gay man with a partner was elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church. Gene Robinson was elected a bishop in 2003 but has since divorced his partner, Mark Andrew. Mary Glasspool, a lesbian married to Becki Sander, was elected a bishop suffragan in 2009 and was present at Brown’s ordination.”
My, how times have changed and the Episcopal Church no longer resembles what it once was.
My heart is filled with gratitude: for the Episcopal Diocese of Maine,who saw in Thomas James Brown, my spouse what I…
From 1990 to 1994, Brown worked as the director of education for Planned Parenthood in South Central Michigan. Why am I not surprised? He condones the slaughter of the unborn as well. Figures. In 2018, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church called for “women’s reproductive health and reproductive health procedures to be treated as all other medical procedures.”
Silly me, I have always thought that if you are a Christian, you follow the teachings of the Bible. You don’t twist them to fit your immorality, whims, or political agenda. If you do, you aren’t really a Christian, now are you? There is no such thing as ‘woke’ parishioners and clergy… just faux Christians.

WATCH: Nearly 80 ICE Protesters Arrested – ‘Racist Mission To Mistreat Children’
You just gotta love how the left screams that ICE is mistreating children…yet..these are the same people that murder the unborn. They don’t care about anyone. This comes down to getting votes.
Arrest every single protester and deport illegals!
Via Fox News:
Former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan delivered a message Monday to the protesters who targeted a Microsoft store in New York City over the weekend to demand the tech giant cease cooperating with ICE.
Police said Saturday that 76 immigration policy protesters had been arrested at a demonstration outside Microsoft’s flagship store in midtown Manhattan.
The protesters demanded that Microsoft stop doing business with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), staging a sit-in that forced the store to close its doors early.
Responding on “Fox & Friends,” Homan called the demonstration “ridiculous,” arguing most of the protesters don’t know the facts about ICE.
“If you studied the issue, you’d thank ICE instead of vilifying them,” he said, arguing the left has gone “so far out of control on this issue” and favors “open borders.”
Homan argued that ICE has rescued thousands of children from “predators,” stopped deadly opioids from coming into the United States and fought terrorism.
“They arrested 127,000 criminals off the streets last year. Not just illegal aliens, those that committed crimes against U.S. citizens. And they want this company to stop working with us?” he asked.
In videos posted to Twitter, protesters could be seen holding signs that read, “This is the price for business with ICE.” The protest was organized by an activist group called Close the Camps NYC.

Protesters have called for the company to cancel its data processing contract with ICE, calls that were echoed by some of Microsoft’s own employees last year.
Via NY Post:
Dozens of protesters were arrested during a sit-in at Microsoft’s Midtown store over the tech giant’s handling of web services for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The NYPD said 24 men and 52 women were charged with obstructing traffic after blocking cars outside the company’s flagship shop on 5th Avenue between 53rd and 54th streets on Saturday.
“By knowingly and willingly providing technology support to ICE, Microsoft Corporation is colluding with ICE and its racist mission to tear apart families, and mistreat children,” said Andy Ratto, an organizer with Close the Camps NYC. “This is a moment of life or death for 11 million undocumented people in the United States, and we will not remain silent as American corporations profiteer from — and enable — human suffering.”
The activists slammed the tech company for making money from ICE by providing the agency with cloud services.
Video from social media shows the protesters sitting in a crosswalk and on sidewalks, chanting and holding up signs reading “No business with ICE.”
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella penned a post in June on LinkedIn, where he called ICE’s family separation policy “simply cruel and abusive.”
“I want to be clear: Microsoft is not working with the U.S. government on any projects related to separating children from their families at the border. Our current cloud engagement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is supporting legacy mail, calendar, messaging and document management workloads.”
A spokesperson for the tech company told The Post the store closed amid the protests and thanked the NYPD for its help.
Hundreds of protesters in New York are blocking off 5th Avenue outside the Microsoft store, while others block the entrance.
They are shutting it down to protest Microsoft’s 20 million dollar contract with ICE.

NRA Files Lawsuit Against San Francisco After Supervisors Label It A ‘Terrorist Organization’
NRA members should file a lawsuit for defamation as well. Meanwhile, Antifa.. is allowed to terrorize innocent Americans.
This is yet another example of why Democrats shouldn’t ever be allowed into office. They do nothing but terrorize the American citizens on a daily basis.
Stop voting these people in!
Via The Daily Wire:
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution last week declaring the nation’s most influential pro-Second Amendment advocate, the National Rifle Association (NRA), a “domestic terrorist organization” and urged the federal government to do the same. On Monday, the NRA filed a lawsuit against the far-left city for violating the organization’s free speech rights for political purposes.
In a resolution passed Tuesday, the board of supervisors “declared the National Rifle Association a domestic terrorist organization.” The City and County of San Francisco “should take every reasonable step to assess the financial and contractual relationships our vendors and contractors have with this domestic terrorist organization,” the resolution states, and they “should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.” The resolution also states that the municipalities will “encourage all other jurisdictions, including other cities, states, and the federal government, to adopt similar positions.”
“The National Rifle Association musters its considerable wealth and organizational strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence, and the National Rifle Association spreads propaganda that misinforms and aims to deceive the public about the dangers of gun violence, and the leadership of National Rifle Association promotes extremist positions, in defiance of the views of a majority of its membership and the public, and undermine the general welfare, and the National Rifle Association through its advocacy has armed those individuals who would and have committed acts of terrorism,” the resolution charges. “All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence.”
The NRA immediately fired back, blasting the “ludicrous stunt” and calling out the city’s leaders for failing to protect its residents by allowing rampant crime and homelessness. “This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few,” the NRA said in a statement reported by KTVU. “The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans.” Continue Reading
