Just in case there was any doubt

Members of Mother Grove Goddess Temple will celebrate at 7 p.m. Saturday with A Breath of Appalachian Spring: A Ritual in Celebration of the Spring Equinox, in the parish hall of the Episcopal Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village.

Saturday's event is open to all faith traditions, said Byron Ballard, wiccan priestess and a member of the temple. Mother Grove “isn't a wiccan group, though some of us are wiccans,” she said.

If you are an Episcopalian, don't start walking for the exit. RUN!

Hat tip Fr. Z.

Huh. I've been to an event in that mmm...building. Walked out halfway through the speech that was being given at about the time the gospel would have been preached in a church.

You know, I've always wanted to take a trip in a gas-filled douchebag, but couldn't find a reason.

Now I have one.

Ummm let's try to raise the tone of the comments a just a little. Thanks.

John, I'm sorry.

It is still very sad, very scary.

John (Ad Orientem) said...

No problem. You didn't write anything that I (and I am guessing others) weren't thinking. My first reaction when reading the news story involved some language I picked up in the Navy. I just try to keep the actual comments on here a little classier than what we might want to say in unguarded moments.

Under the mercy,

'open to all faith traditions'...that believe in nothing, ordain lesbians, and have sold Christ for the gods of the nations.

what is particularly revolting is their appropriation of what looks to be St Bridget's cross.

When women seize the reins at the institutions, straight men head for the exits and you end up with a ghetto for women and their homosexual friends.

Our governing institutions are all headed in this direction, btw, and not even the military is immune.

I have been thinking of trying a local ACNA parish since the Orthodox seem to lack missionary zeal and a sense of being Christian. I know many wonderful Orthodox Christians but not like I have seen in Anglicanism or Roman Catholicism. My problem is that Calvanism is so much a part of Anglicanism. Orthodox theology is right on, it is difficult to leave based on that alone and I am sure that I am part of the problem as well.

I noticed that they had St Bridget crosses there -- perhaps she will be a fifth columnist in their midst.

"Perhaps it was ordained that the Anglicans, like their brothers the Catholics, should suffer. It is a time for weeping, and a time for rage. Do not go gently into the night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. That would be the advice of this outsider to my brothers in the Anglican Church. They must rage against those who bring upon Christianity not only indifference, but contempt."
-- William F. Buckley, Jr. on the snowball he saw beginning, prophetically it seems, with the changing of the 'Official' version of the Lord's Prayer to more (secularly) appropriate wording, rolling downward toward the state of the Anglican communion we see today.
