The Gates of Hell Shall not Prevail. God Bless Bishop Iker.

Bishop Iker in LSPland

You've heard the old saying, "They should round up all the bishops and put them in a cage." There's an exception to that rule in Jack Iker, Bishop of Fort Worth. 

Iker doesn't celebrate Neronian gay marriages and he doesn't ordain women, he doesn't even hold goof-off liturgical dances in his cathedral. But what he does do is drive out to LSPland to confirm a very sick man in his home, out by Slap Out, aka Hubbard.

We RV'd at the Compound and drove out to the countryside and the sacrament of Confirmation, in which the Holy Spirit is bestowed by the laying on of hands and anointing. Now, I've never been present at a "house confirmation," much less asked a bishop to do one and I'll tell you this, it was a powerful and blessed event. I don't say that lightly.

Cage These Goons. And Stacy Sauls? You're fired.

Bishop Iker is known for his unwavering stand for catholic orthodoxy, in the Anglican tradition, in the face of the litigious rage the Episcopal Church. He was the first traditionalist bishop to say enough is enough and leave the Episcopal Church with his diocese. He did so on the floor of the 2006 General Convention in Columbus; I know, I was there. Three years later the Episcopal Church rounded on Iker and his diocese, suing him personally and the diocese, in an attempt to gain its money, property and presumably wreck the life of its bishop.

A Couple of Goof-Off Clowns

That lawsuit is ongoing at huge expense and the Episcopal Church is losing, having suffered a series of defeats in the courts. 

The result has yet to be called, but Bishop Iker remains a pastoral and good man in the Apostolic succession. And what can I say? 

The gates of hell shall not prevail, do not compromise with them.

God bless,

You need to clone Bishop Iker - a few dozen times.

You've spoken of the good bishop before. He seems to be a very fine man, indeed. I shall add him and your ill parishioner to my prayer list.

The doctrines and philosophies put forward by the parasites wearing clown costumes (and they're surrounded by lesbian acolytes wearing their dance outfits and comfortable shoes) have the intended result of producing a smallness of the soul. Self-indulgence on the parts of these only vaguely discussed practitioners of wicca, translates to their congregations and you have to ask yourself who or what is behind this. Who or what is pulling their strings?

They ordain small, unworthy creatures to serve them. People who allow them to do the thinking for them, who swallow every immoral and outrageous concept as if it was golden. And their legacy is there for all to see. Which is why congregations shrink to a band of misfits, perverts, and freaks who only show up to have their conduct validated by somebody dressed like a clown, overseeing a liturgical dance contest.

LL, a wise man once said, "If you go against the will of the Holy Spirit you will be relentlessly destroyed by that same Spirit."

Thanks, Adrienne.
