These were from ‘Episcopal Church Memes’ on Facebook.
I wish there were a lot more Episcopal churches here. They are non fundamentalist and appear to have many of the same beliefs and understanding, as I do.
Just as I was feeling very alone in my Christian understanding of supporting marriage equality etc… and I read this. Thank you God ❤
Speaking up about abuse not being okay in any form, including spiritual abuse by church people, is part of my journey.
Abuse of any type, is never okay and never excusable.
Uniting Church Minister Margaret Mayman writes “The recent decision to legalise marriage for same sex couples in Ireland has been cast as a victory against the Catholic Church. What secular commentators miss is that it was a decisive victory for ordinary Christians.” Continue reading →
I realise my understanding of LGBTIQ not being sin and why…. will fall on deaf ears with most church people.
I also realise it is a hard job speaking up about this with secular society and people who do not believe in God.

To say you did not know fondling a child’s genitals, is a criminal act, is typical of the type of attitude and thinking, paedophiles have. They don’t believe what they do is wrong, or illegal.
And this man is a head teacher of a school. They would know any form of child sexual abuse, is illegal. Continue reading →

This judge has been forced to apologise, due to complaints made.
This women has already been traumatised, in one of the worst ways possible, then Continue reading →
