Transgender people are being encouraged to become Church of England vicars as bishops launch a diversity drive.

Bishops in the diocese of Lichfield have issued new guidance to parishioners and clergy reminding them that LGBT people "can be called to roles of leadership and service in the local church".

I'd pick up popcorn for a good laugh, but it's about a Christian body.  So it cannot but be the work of the enemy of human nature, whose superior intelligence excludes his motives being for a good laugh, as he's been saving laughs for the Day of Judgement.

Lord, have mercy.

My deepest sympathies for the Continuing Anglicans. You think the Sedevacantists have it bad? Look at the Continuing Anglicans.

It's far less bad, at least Continuing Anglicans don't have to make up weird theories on why they split from the main communion or are just ignoring the mainstream hierarchy. Anglicanism from the very beginning doesn't presuppose unity around Canterbury for rule of faith, AFAIK.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Yeah, the Continuing Anglicans at this point are much stabler and more viable than the sedevacantists can hope to be. The ones whose sense of security I really wonder about are those Orthodox who feel the need to post threads on the latest silly thing they heard the Anglicans were doing.

I agree.
