Will Episcopals "bless" pedophile relationships?

The California Diocese of the Episcopal church has decided to “bless” homosexual relationships that are “monogamous”. Don’t laugh, they are serious. Perhaps the church will assign monogamy monitors  to each couple to ensure they do what they claim they are doing.

Bishop Chester Talton of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin in California has authorized clergy to bless the relationships of same-sex couples in church as “sacred unions.”

According to London’s Guardian, the move from Bishop Talton breaks a ban on blessing same-sex unions, an issue that has divided the Anglican Communion, which includes the U.S. Episcopal Church. Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury and head of the Anglican Communion, has declared his opposition to blessing same-sex unions.

The directive from Bishop Talton says that clergy may bless “same-gender civil marriages, domestic partnerships and relationships which are lifelong committed relationships characterised by fidelity, monogamy, mutual affection and respect [and] careful, honest communication,” reports the Guardian.

Like the Methodists who are simply aping the lost culture, the Episcopal  bishop’s rationalization for blessing what God has cursed is typical of the apostate church of today.  When challenged about sanctioning homosexual marriage, most progay clergy will invariably point to the opposition to mixed raced marriages. Why should we tell people who they can love?, they protest.

But if we fast forward a decade, will we see these same clergy justifying “intergenerational” sexual relationships by pointing to opposition of homosexual marriages? If we can’t tell a person who they can “love” (read:have sex with), then the door is already open for pedophiles to benefit from the “blessing” of homosexual marriage.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 5: vss 20;24

  1. To the founder and staff of Gay Christian Movement Watch….I want to applaude your work in the vineyard in promoting Biblical sound doctrine by exposing the works of satan. I learn so much from your website and appreciate your stand. It is so encouraging to know others who have not bowed to Baal. May the Lord continue to bless you!

  2. I was raised by a single mom. I didn’t have a real relationship with my father. Some years back, 2001 maybe, I wished I had been given the opportunity to had been born into a family with both a mother and father. Mother was busy with trying to be both that she was more father than mother. I would have wanted a father even if he rejected my being homosexual.
    Now that I’ve been delievered from that lifestyle, I knew, just like the prodigal son’s father of the Bible, he would have
    been proud of my turning from that lifestyle. God put it into children to have both a mother and a father. One to nuture and the other as disciplenarian. Two men or two women can’t teach a male child to be a man or a female to be a woman.
    The homosexual agenda is to adopt children in order to prove that their perverted lifestyle is no different from a
    hetersexual home life. A counterfeit will never and can never take the place of the geniune. God doesn’t create
    counterfeits, satan does.

  3. Stephanie, on behalf of the GCMW writing staff, our thanks to you for reading and loving the law of the Lord. Let God be true and every man a liar.

  4. Very sad. You know when the answers given for this folly do not mention God, that this is nothing but pagan idolatry in a church.

    Episcopalians should know (and many do) that the Church of England from which it descends was formed, in spite of political and personal, in protest of false doctrine of the Church of Rome. If there need be a split or mass exodus again, so be it.

  5. Amen. The #1 problem in America is fatherlessness. Sin is always going to be part of a fallen world but if the fathers where in the home in America raising their kids, we wouldnt have all these problems. The level they have reached (worse than Sodom and Gamorrah) with sexual immortality, gender bending, gangs, rapes, drugs, abortion and false god worship is just unreal. All because there is no head in the household…..

  6. To condemn The Episcopal Church for whom they support is one unfortunate way to share the Christian message! Judging others was never a commandment from God, actually quite the opposite.
    I am very confident gay marriage will not lead to accepting pedophilia. It saddens me to see individuals frightened of gay marriage because of unsupported claims such as it will lead to accepting pedophilia! Gay marriage involves two consenting adults and pedophilia includes one adult and a child below the age of consent or state legalization. It’s clearly that simple, regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs. Its unfortunate individuals find it so easy to label welcoming the Gay Society as the precursor to welcoming the Pedophilia Society. I weep inside!

    Why can’t we just invite everyone to the Love of God just as Jesus did? I believe and know that is the primary objective in the Episcopal Church’s decisions. Jesus invited everyone robbers, prostitutes, beggars and accepted them into the kingdom. Who gave us authority to condemn someone based on their “sin”, Jesus didn’t and HE is the inspiration for our church no one else! I believe in a God of Love, and condemning someone or group has no place in the Christian Church. Many blessings to all who share in showing Gods love!

    Jarvis, you have a very short memory. Just nine years ago, homosexuality was illegal, just like pedophilia. The only reason its not illegal now is because laws against it were struck down. What makes you think that laws against pedophilia will not be struck down just like the ones prohibiting homosexual conduct? What if the law says that as long as the child is consenting, then there’s no wrong? The age of consent is already under attack in many countries. You shouldnt be sad, you should be glad that someone is asking the critical questions about this issue. The apostate Episcopal church isnt. And before you begin with all the redefined love stuff, please know that love is not a liscense for anyone to throw away the law of God. His law still says that homosexual activity is wrong.

  8. There is clear reason why homosexuality is no longer illegal in our country. To justify your argument in saying “Just nine years ago, homosexuality was illegal, just like pedophilia. The only reason its not illegal now is because laws against it were struck down.” is invalid.
    Homosexuality and pedophilia are not the same, it is sad you can’t see that.
    GCMW: Oh? Really? Let us count the ways:
    1. Both involve sex and both are a perversion of natural sexual desires
    2. Both are sexually immature expressions of sexual desires
    3. Both were illegal just nine years ago
    4. Both claim the right to “love” whomever they want to as justification
    5. Both were accepted by the founder of the homosexual rights movement Harry Hay
    6. Both acts are sinful
    7. Both use manipulation of younger people for sexual activity

    Just a few years ago whites and blacks weren’t able to marry. Laws are revised when they come in direct conflict with civil rights and our Constitution. Do you know why laws against homosexuality were struck down? I think if you read why that would justify their removal.

    GCMW: And at a point in time (which is clearly on the horizon), the “laws” will come in to direct conflict with the “rights” of pedophiles, just like they came into “conflict” with the “rights” of homosexuals.

    I personally feel that it is unfair to attack the Episcopal Church for challenging religious norms. They challenge religious norms to create a true kingdom of God. Religious norms must be challenge when they hurt more than love, when they condemn more than accept, and when they psychologically scar more than heal. Gods law was to love, and his law you speak of given by Moses never spake of homosexuality.

    GCMW: In this you do err greatly. Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? 1 Cor 6 The Episcopal church (and no church for that matter) doesnt have the authority to override the rule of God. Frankly they dont have the power either. That’s why their wicked partnership with the enemies of God reveals them for what they really are.

    That “law” was given by man, the former Rabbis and elders of Judaism. No one is throwing away Gods law just implementing it in the Christ like way.
    GCMW: Jesus Christ affirmed that all sexual activity outside the male-female creation model is SIN. All means all. By excluding everything except that model, he gave everything else the same degenerate status. So you are not doing it Christ-like. Your father the devil has influenced you and the Episcopal church to do this wickedness and then twist God’s words to justify it. That’s spiritual sickness of the worst kind.

    No church denomination is perfect in interpretation by no means but the Episcopal Church does have leading scholars and theologians leading them into making thoughtful decisions.

    GCMW: There’s a stark difference in the church and God’s word. Maybe thats the problem youve made your church a god.

    I worry less about the their decisions in following the holy spirit to accept and love all and more about those denominations who condemn and judge. You should stop in you local Episcopal Church and experience there governing process before making assumptions of how they follow the holy spirit!

    GCMW: Jesus said if you love me, you will obey my commands. Jesus affirmed and upheld all OT sexual moral standards and never encouraged or supported anyone who broke them. You would do well to follow HIS example.

  9. Ok your reply is totally unsupported with facts….
    GCMW: Oh? Really? Let us count the ways:
    1. Both involve sex and both are a perversion of natural sexual desires
    -just like heterosexuality involves sex, is that perverse as well. “Natural”, in your perspective. “Natural” is subjective just as “Normal” is subjective.
    2. Both are sexually immature expressions of sexual desires
    – sexually immature according to which psychological discovery. That statement has 0 validity.
    3. Both were illegal just nine years ago
    – just like inter racial relations was illegal, should we protest that as well
    4. Both claim the right to “love” whomever they want to as justification
    – once again, two adults loving one another is not the same as a adult sexually loving a child.
    5. Both were accepted by the founder of the homosexual rights movement Harry Hay
    – Hitler hated the “gays” too, should we use his support as well.
    6. Both acts are sinful
    – in your perspective, but let us not forget in order to label sin we must judge. Judging oneanother is also sin.
    7. Both use manipulation of younger people for sexual activity
    – that’s just offensive and ridiculous. It’s obvious you don’t know any gay people. Sure you can claim to not associate yourself with sinners, what study or research you found supports that idea. That’s unfortunate you feel that way.

    In this you do err greatly. Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? 1 Cor 6 The Episcopal church (and no church for that matter) doesnt have the authority to override the rule of God. Frankly they dont have the power either. That’s why their wicked partnership with the enemies of God reveals them for what they really are.
    -What? You and your denomination has the same amount of authority. You continuously speak of this law of God, which law do you refer to that speaks of homosexuality. Moses didn’t give it, nor did Jesus. Neither spake of it. Followers and disciples of both just like you and me spoke of it. We have the same authority as those past disciples. Gay people are not the enemies of God. They do not hate God. If anything, it’s the so called “Godly” people that hate the Gays. Isn’t that ironic. Lastly with God’s help I do follow Jesus’ example, with inviting everyone to the table of God….. the prostitute, the drugatic, the gay person, the divorcee, the gambler, the alcoholic, the thief. Everyone has a place in Gods kingdom!

  10. Thanks for posting that. I rest my case.
    The darkness over the minds of the wicked is stunning.
    Just like the bible (the one you dont believe in or practice) says.
