Friends, false shepherds are guiding our souls toward death

Here's what the Archbishop of Canterbury said at today's end of his Lambeth Conference:

And that’s why the pleas for continuing moratoria regarding certain new policies and practices have been uttered.

These "moratoria" include stopping same-sex "marriages" or blessings.

Here's what the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church said in response:

We have prayed, cried, learned, and laughed together, and discovered something deeper about the body of Christ...At the same time patience is being urged from many quarters, that all may more fully know the leading of the Spirit.

She never mentions same-sex blessings specifically, despite that practice being a significant focus of the the Lambeth discussions.

And here is the reality on the ground:

Rebecca Anne Binder, the daughter of Dr. Martha Connell and Dr. Jack Binder of Scarsdale, N.Y., was married on Saturday to Amanda Elizabeth Laws, the daughter of Oneida Méndez-Laws and the Rev. Thomas Laws of Montclair, N.J. Ms. Binder’s father, who was authorized by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, officiated at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charlestown, Mass., where Ms. Laws’s father, an Episcopal priest, participated in a blessing ceremony.

So we have
  • Empty "leadership" at the Anglican Communion level, with the Archbishop of Canterbury "pleading" for some restraint;
  • Word tricks and deception from the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church
  • The homosexual activists using the church whenever, however and for whatever they want.

These men are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever. Jude 1:12-13
