The National Cathedral, a symbol to the nation and the world of the Christian faith, has succumbed to the apostate demand for recognition of homosexual "marriage."
While Tim Brown so well explained why marriage cannot be between "homosexuals" by it's own definition, the apostate culture, with our Marxist, God hating government, aligns itself not with Truth, but with the promotion of what God calls an abomination. (Lev 20:13, Lev 18:22, Romans 1:26, Jude 7, Gen 19:4, etc)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington National Cathedral, where the nation gathers to mourn tragedies and celebrate new presidents, will soon begin hosting same-sex marriages.
Cathedral officials tell The Associated Press the church will be among the first Episcopal congregations to implement a new rite of marriage for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members. The church will announce its new policy Wednesday.
As the nation's most prominent church, the decision carries huge symbolism. The 106-year-old cathedral has long been a spiritual center for the nation, hosting presidential inaugural services and funerals for Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his last sermon there in 1968. The cathedral draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
In light of the legality of same-sex marriage in the District of Columbia and now Maryland, the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, decided in December to allow an expansion of the Christian marriage sacrament. The diocese covers the district and four counties in Maryland. The change is allowed under a "local option" granted by the church's General Convention, church leaders said. Each priest in the diocese can then decide whether to perform same-sex unions.
The Very Rev. Gary Hall, the cathedral's dean, said performing same-sex marriages is an opportunity to break down barriers and build a more inclusive community "that reflects the diversity of God's world."
The diversity of God's world is a true statement. What is a lie, is that the God of the Bible changes His stance on marriage and homosexuality. What is a lie, is that we are doing God's work when we condone what God calls an abhorrent sin. What is destructive is the assault on marriage, because it is God alone who makes the definitions: not sinful man.
What is detrimental to our future, is the re-definition of marriage, in an effort to include sin as a foundation of truth. As our government and it's people seek to join hands, interlocked by sin, we will become more malleable by that very government who thinks it is not under God's judgement. We become more ripe for the picking for groups such as the UN, to create a more "peaceful" New World Order-one that draws no distinctions..no distinctions between homosexuals and those truly married under God's definition. No distinctions between criminals and law abiding gun owners. No distinctions between the government of Godless oppressors and the Godly people they seek to oppress.
"I read the Bible as seriously as fundamentalists do," Hall told the AP. "And my reading of the Bible leads me to want to do this because I think it's being faithful to the kind of community that Jesus would have us be."
Apparently, Hall has not, and will not be reading the actual Bible, line by line, pretext by pretext, in order to avoid the actual sins and words from God Himself, about the abomination that is defiled sex. It's promotion is one that will be dealt with harshly.
The national cathedral is no more than an ornate and defiled bath house for homosexual promotion. The Holy Bible has been stomped on not only in small apostate churches around the nation, but now in God's House that was once representative of His Holy Word throughout the land, and the world.
May God have mercy on our nation of sin-loving and commandment abandoning government. May we call Obama and his administration out when they invoke the name of God; that it is not the God of our Bible whom he summons in his dramatically fake addresses to the American people, during the next convenient tragedy that he will exploit for the Marxist goals of this ungodly administration.
"As a kind of tall-steeple, public church in the nation's capital, by saying we're going to bless same-sex marriages, conduct same-sex marriages, we are really trying to take the next step for marriage equality in the nation and in the culture," Hall said."
