No surprise to read that the National Episcopal Church wants government funded abortions.
It is one thing for Christians to disagree about broad social policy. The whole debate over government funded health care will find Christians, like all other people, arguing over the most beneficial means to provide the best care for the most people.
But for an ostensibly Christian denomination to sell itself out for a few pats on the head from a declining group of zealots is the worst sort of whoring. To simply drop the inherently religious discussion of the beginning and dignity of life is to become a prostitute for the ungodly.
For those who don't know, the Episcopal Church became a sponsor of this kind of trash through its "Executive Council" - about 40 disproportionately old, affluent gay folks at a wine 'n' cheese party. There was no church-wide debate. In fact, many dioceses (including South Dakota) had passed resolutions asking for respectful restraint in the abortion debate.
After the Executive Council whored out the church, some dioceses and many individuals asked for the repeal of the action - with truly appalling lack of response.
