Episcopal Church expected to OK liturgy for same-sex couples
Sixteen years after allowing gays and lesbians to become priests, the Episcopal Church appears poised to introduce a rite that would specifically bless the unions of same-sex couples.
If the liturgy is approved, which is expected, Episcopalians will become the first major denomination to endorse such a ritual for homosexual couples.
On its face, the blessing seems similar to that of a marriage rite -- including â€śI do,â€ť â€śwe have gathered together todayâ€ť and an exchange of rings. Notably absent are the words â€śhusband,â€ť â€świfeâ€ť and â€śmarriage.â€ť...

Perhaps the 'Liturgy" could have Bible verses which highlight the true facts of this abomination. Such as:~ Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Not long when you consider the length of time Satan has been whittling away at the word of God, beginning in the Garden (Yea, hath God said?), and more recently in the Dark Ages when the Roman Catholic Bully-Boys sought to prevent the translation of God's word into English and other languages; and even more recently when two Dr's were pounced upon by devils, and had their minds twisted, so that they produced a corrupted greek text, with which they infiltrated the RV Bible translation and successfully began a steady corruption of the Bible beginning in 1881 and continuing to this day. And publishers will still be churning out wrecked Bibles when there is a shout from heaven, and time will cease, and the Lord descends from heaven.
In the meantime, God's people will still have the Authorized (King James) Version to refer to, for doctrine, reproof, correction, encouragement, and to learn all they need to know about the Lord Jesus Christ in his incarnation, his life, his death upon a cross, his resurrection and ascension, and his coming again to judge this world. And it is believing what God has said about his Son, that brings any sinner into that place of safety, as they receive HIM.
