The Episcopal Diocese in Virginia — yes, the one that is chasing away some of it’s most vibrant and successful congregations as it has rushed to throw away any relationship between the Bible and church doctrine — has decided that the most important thing they could do to save souls and inspire others to faith during a recent council meeting is to weigh in on the illegal alien issue. Not surprisingly they’ve come down on the side of the illegal aliens, or “migrants” as they refer to them. What’s best about this is the rationale for this decision, as reported in the Washington Times:
“Much of what’s being done at the local level is taking away the rights, privileges and programs that apply to children,” Mr. Jones said. “They can’t go to teen programs; in some cases, they can’t go to school or get library cards. Local governments are acting as demagogues and trying to shift responsibility away from themselves.”
This is so pathetically false, such drivel absolutely must be an intentional lie. No one is advocating challenging Plyer v. Doe in Richmond or at the local level, no one has proposed denying library cards to illegal aliens, nor have teen programs been shut down anywhere over concerns about illegal aliens. Apparently the easiest place to find folks eager to violate the Ninth Commandment these days would be Episcopal Diocese of Virginia’s Council Meetings. As a former Episcopalian, I can hardly say this surprises me at all.
The hard left took this church over, and they’ve been working just as hard as they can to become something resembling Unitarians. The few holdout congregations who actually think that the Bible is what the church should be based on rather than leftist “social justice” dogma, are finding themselves in awfully scarce company these days.
This utter goofiness is not going to help the Diocese of Virginia survive.
