Really must stop posting but there’s so much to post on just now. I’m really enjoying this, too.
This women bishops vote is a trial run for when other PCism goes askew and loses traction, so it’s been a treat to see the truly ignorant comments at the Mail – it shows just how far the narrative has been bought by the average joe.
And this was a victory for the laity over the toffs – Banned hit the nail on the head:
As a lapsed CofE I don’t presume to a say in how they run their affairs but neither should Chris (underpants) Bryant and the rest. Those who feel strongly that women should be able to become Bishops are perfectly free to go away and form their own Church.
“This was a grass-roots victory for the laity over the corrupt left-liberal establishment” Other branches of said left-liberal establishment take note.
The most laughable suggestions were that God must get abreast of modern times. They seek to dictate to their Maker? LOL.
Yeah right, God should just get over sodomy and killings, rapings, drugs, families torn apart, children wasted before their time, ignorance and no education, no jobs, neighbour v neighbour, no national pride, nothing produced any more and so on – yep, God should sure embrace modern life.
This was a nice comment [though naturally red-arrowed to near-death]:
The disaster for the Church of England is that the leaders ignore the rank and file. They now want to change the rules like politicians so they get the result that they want, because of course they know better than the poor saps who make up the congregation. If they were more in touch with the people who turn up faithfully every Sunday to sit through their sermons I suggest they would be a little less shocked by the result !
GK Chesterton wrote a story in which Christianity was a little old man, almost dead, always dying but never quite dead. There was a Czech film in Super 8 at one time about the power of the state trying to stamp out dissent and the more they used massive weaponry to stamp it out, [represented by poppies] the more new poppies … er … popped up.
Ditto with Christianity. The more the blind and gullible get apoplectic about it, the more it will survive – don’t they understand that the natural conditions for Christianity to survive is under duress and suppression? It’s even in the Beatitudes, for goodness sake.
So, long after the PC narrative is gone, the church will still be dying … and then in another generation and another … it will continue to “die” on throughout the remainder of history – and what resources will have been expended to stop it!
Bring it on, Cameron and Osborne, Committee of 300 members.
