‘Bishops’ Mum on Slaughter of Innocents

Jun 17, 2020 by

by Jules Gomes, Church Militant:

Nineteen prelates, including five women bishops, abstained from a pro-life vote as Britain’s House of Lords voted 355–77 to approve the government’s extreme abortion regime in Northern Ireland.

Bishops Sarah Mullally (London), Rachel Treweek (Gloucester), Vivienne Faull (Bristol), Christine Hardman (Newcastle) and Elizabeth Lane (Derby) belong to the cohort of 26 Church of England bishops who sit in the House of Lords as Lords Spiritual

Seven male bishops, shamed by a previous Church Militant exposé, voted against the Abortion (Northern Ireland) (No 2) Regulations statutory instrument on Monday.

Even though the House of Bishops at the Church of England’s General Synod stated in February that 98.3% of abortions in the United Kingdom are immoral, only Apb. Justin Welby (Canterbury) and Bps. Paul Butler (Durham), Christopher Cocksworth (Coventry), Timothy Dakin (Winchester), Julian Henderson (Blackburn), Donald Allister (Peterborough) and James Newcome (Carlisle) voted pro-life in Parliament.

“‘Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?’ asks the prophet Isaiah. The answer appears to be yes, if she happens to be a bishop in the Church of England,” lamented Dave Brennan, director of pro-life Brephos.

“One argument for having bishops with ‘real-life experience’ is that they can apparently bring their insights to bear on ‘real-life’ issues,” Brennan noted. “But that hasn’t happened with bishop of London Sarah Mullally who, despite having been a midwife and the U.K.’s chief nursing officer, is mum on abortion.”
