from DFW Catholic:

"Previous generations of liberal Episcopal clergy often spoke in layers of obfuscation; discovering the heretical teaching buried in their writing and preaching required hours of decoding. Hall represents a younger generation of liberal Episcopalians who resemble nothing so much as Unitarian Universalists decked out in stoles and surplices; they are quick to denounce those who advocate historic Christian teaching—especially moral teaching—as intolerant perpetrators of injustice who must be silenced.

"In an October interview with the Detroit Free PressHall announced that he is,'not about trying to convert someone to Christianity. I don’t feel I’m supposed to convert Jews or Muslims or Hindus or Buddhists or Native Americans to Christianity so that they can be saved. That’s not an issue for me ...'

"'I have much more in common with progressive Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists than I do with certain people in my own tradition, with fundamentalist Christians ... The part of Christianity I stand with is the part in which we can live with ambiguity and with pluralism.'

"... Once upon a time the Episcopal Church was the church of most of the elites in our society: the Old Money, the WASP aristocracy. It was not uncommon for Protestants, and a few Catholics, as they climbed the social ladder, to join the Episcopal Church as a sign of 'having arrived'. No more. The Episcopal Church is a dying church where Christianity has been supplanted by Leftist politics. It was therefore completely fitting and proper for Feinstein to wheel out a representative of that dying church to baptize the latest Leftist crusade du jour. Prayer will be tolerated on the Left when it comes from a representative of their faith and only then. The Episcopal Church is truly the modern Democrat party at prayer ..."

“... truth will out.”

It seems by her own words her love for the Lord is much less than her love for such ungodlinness and abomination.

Notice she said she loves TEC. She loves TEC because they celebrate and affirm her sin.

I love the Episcopal Church and there is nothing that you can do or say to keep me from loving God....call me Joan of Arc...Get behind me Satan, you can do nothing to make me deny my Father in heaven.

... because it both affirms and reflects your own fallen image.

And if you're hearing voices in your head, it doesn't mean you're Joan of Arc.

If you don't realize that recognizing our fallen image is exactly what God wants in us, then there is not hope for you. God needs us to recognize our brokenness and our failings and to realize that he is the great healer and physician for the soul.

God can't help you Joe. You see yourself as perfect and in no need of him. Pity....how is life as a PHARISEE?

TEC doesn't just recognize, it also embraces that image, which is why so many have left it.

And your "fallen image" isn't that of Joan of Arc, so what are you really looking at?
