Liberal Canadian Anglicans Lose Vote: Continue Same-Sex Marriages
Though the Anglican Church in Canada last week failed to amend its canon to sanction same-sex marriages, in the wake of the narrow vote, dioceses have opted to continue with them anyway.
The amendment, first passed in 2016, required a two-thirds majority vote among lay delegates, clergy, and bishops at two triennial general synods in a row. While it met the threshold among lay and clergy (80.9% and 73.2%) during this yearâs synod, the bishopsâ vote last Friday fell just short of two-thirds (62.2%).
On Monday, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, the Primate of Canada, read a statement to the delegation saying the bishops âare not of one mindâ on the issue, but that âwe are walking together in a way which leaves room for individual dioceses and jurisdictions of our church to proceed with same-sex marriage,â according to Anglican Planet....
Liberalism the religion of Anglicanism is a plague which Satan spreads to destroy morals and church doctrines.
In western society its deadly toxin has turned people into ignorant sophistry with little care for principles and ethics or the church.
The fact that it is the language of the sodomite agenda is no surprise in a fallen world, where Satan's demons rule the minds and hearts of reprobates heathens and pagans.
Satan is dominant over this world and only the Remnant have the shield of faith and the sword of the Spirit in this evil battle. The rest of mankind is blind and alienated from God by their dark and sin filled hearts.
It's still sad to note that the majority of all three groups supported queer marriages, which are condemned in the Bible
Matthew 19:4-6 He answered, âHavenât you read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, âFor this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh?â So that they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, donât let man tear apart.â
It's interesting that the Sermon Audio article has several interesting ones following it! For example,

From Old Testament examples it seems like nepotism for religious leaders is almost always a bad thing, e.g., Eli's sons (1 Samuel 2:22 etc.)
I am surprised that in the Canadian Anglican Church it was the Bishops, that held up the âgay marriageâ, rather than the clergy, or more particularly the laity. In England, (Wales and Scotland are separate in the Anglican Church, and follow the Leftist route, and are not part of the state established Anglican Church which only applies to England), the Bishops are the leading pro-LGBT force, the clergy are not far behind, and the laity are the ones who are generally resisting âgay marriageâ. At present âgay marriagesâ are illegal to take place in Anglican churches, but our government, no doubt, will soon reverse that.
As for Canada, I suspect that all this will be academic anyway, as I am sure the Leftist government of Justin Trudeau will soon take the decision out of their hands, and force all churches to conduct âgay marriagesâ, ordain homosexual clergy, censor âunhelpfulâ and âcontroversialâ Bible passages and preaching and be fully âgender inclusiveâ, or face prosecution and persecution.
