The Episcopal Church's 77th General Convention concluded Thursday with the adoption of a long list of resolutions, from one that calls on the U.S. Congress to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act to another providing rites for pet funerals.
"These resolutions in my opinion are disconcerting changes to the doctrine, discipline and worship of the Episcopal Church â€“ to which every bishop, priest and deacon is asked to conform," said S.C. Bishop the Rt. Rev. Mark J. Lawrence. "More importantly they mark a departure from the doctrine, discipline and worship of Christ as this Church has received them, therein making it necessary for me to strongly differentiate myself from such actions."
Twelve other bishops also released a report to record their dissent....
Lekens is quite correct. First they had blessings for pets, as mentioned in Gil Rugh's sermon, The Truth Behind The Church's Purpose which if the Episcopalians ever knew the purpose, they have long forgotten it.
