Progressive for ever and ever, A-women

Jan 9, 2021 by

by Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack, The Conservative Woman: YOU may have thought 2020 was a milestone in progressive insanity infiltrating the church. We found the Church of Scotland, in defiance of science, asserting that some ‘women have a penis’. Not to be outdone, the Church of England stepped forward when Jay Greene, a member of its General Synod, brazenly mangled Scripture by saying to ‘lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender’ people ‘as Our Lord said to Lazarus, Come out.’ If you thought this...

Where might the Church of England’s Living in Love and Faith lead?

Jan 5, 2021 by

from Christian Today: Last November, the Church of England published Living in Love and Faith (LLF), a set of resources about relationships, marriage, sexuality and identity.

Novena News, which was born with “the goal of becoming a world-leading source for news on religion in Europe and beyond as well as a mouthpiece for the most authentic reforming currents in the Catholic...

It’s a live issue at the moment for many in the Church of England following the publication of the ‘Living in Love and Faith’ (LLF) resources which aim to stimulate discussion about such matters.
