All The Colors of The Rainbow!



It's been tough sledding for the diminutive Anglican Church of Canada (ACoC) over the last decade or so. For some reason, not too many people want to be included in Fred Hiltz's church of inclusion. But maybe that's about to change, thanks to the government.


The federal government will include gay men among the Syrian refugees it brings into Canada as part of a plan that puts the focus on accepting women, children and families.
Now we know why the Anglican Church of Canada has been campaigning for more refugees to be admitted: an influx of potential ACoC priests.



Experts describe ACoC as "lost in the icy void of deep space." Whether a sudden and massive influx of gay Muslim refugees will turn the dwindling denomination's fortunes around is unclear.

Can one remain a homosexual Muslim and be a vicar of the Church of Canada? I suppose that it would pose no problem for a church of inclusion.

I think I remember Jesus saying something about homosexual Muslims in the Beatitudes. Or not. It's been a long time since I read the Gospels.

I think there's a few of them already, LL. But don't, whatever you do, disagree with the settled science of climate change. Or you'll get fired.

You're probably thinking of, "Blessed is the Rainbow Jihad, for theirs is the Kingdom of Europe, and Canada, and, ahem, America."

Good luck, chaps.

Kind of a low blow there, Parson. Some of us still feel called to soldier on the ACoC. I have to say though, that's an interesting grouping of dots connected in this post.

Sorry, Padre, you are always excepted. And I know there's good people in the ACoC.

But sometimes Samizdat deserves a link...

Euripides said...

Ah yes. That's Mattew 5:49 isn't it?

Not called the Beatitudes for nothing, Herr Doktor, Euripides.
