While we’re on Anglicanism – how horrid December 18, 2009

Fair warning, you may not want to click the link below.

While we’re on the topic of Anglicanism, a heretical “Anglican archdeacon” in New Zealand decided it would be fun this Christmas to go out and be as offensive as possible.   This is unbelievable.  This archdeacon has created a billboard that reduces the incarnation into some kind of Biblical invitro-fertilization, or worse, and has managed to commit heresy by violating the teachings of his own church and insult millions of devout Christians of all denominations.   I would post a picture of the billboard here, but I don’t want to sully this site with something so horrid.  I do not understand the mentality of someone who would deliberately do this. 

I don’t know if the archdeacon is desperate for attention, if he loves provoking people, or if he is simply a heretic so far gone from the teachings of the church that he doesn’t even care about the reaction people are going to have something like this.  Unfortunately, there are a number of Anglicans/Episcopalians for whom reverence to God is nothing but a joke, and the Anglican church nothing more than a nice club where they can discuss their ideas on wrecking liturgy and spreading leftist social dogma.   With an emphasis on the latter.  For these people, causing scandal is a preferred  means of making their leftist social commentary, I suppose. 

Yes, those are strong statements, but something like this, at Christ’s Mass, no less, is completely beyond the pale.   And it’s not the first time.

Creative Minority Report has more.

Women’s ordination December 18, 2009

Fr. Dwight Longenecker has a very intelligent post regarding women’s ordination in particular and the different views of Anglicans and Catholics in general.  I think his analysis of the Anglican view of theology, as being oriented towards the subjective and of an ever-changing nature, not something based in bedrock Truth, is spot on. 

I highly encourage you to read it, even if you don’t agree with Fr. Longenecker’s stance on women’s ordination and why it is a complete impossibility in the Catholic Church, his thoughts on the nature of theology in the two religions are well worth your consideration.

New Mass translation December 18, 2009

If you’re tired of the dumbed down ICEL English translation of the Mass that’s been in use since 1970, and want a far more uplifting, liturgically-correct, and accurate translation of the Mass, make your voice heard!  Sign the petition here.

The new translation is pending and should be introduced in a year or two at most, but there are still some opposed to it.
