The Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota passed Resolution #8 in 2006, calling on Episcopalians to "respect each others point of view regarding controversial issues (i.e. abortion)." Diocese of South Dakota 2006 Journal p. 29.
We're part of a nice, reasonable, "inclusive" church, right?
Wrong. The "Executive Council" of The Episcopal Church (a disproportionately gay committee that claims authority to run the church during the three years between its General Conventions) says that TEC is for unrestricted abortion. That's right, a group of bureaucrats put TEC on record as a sponsor for The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. The Episcopal Church is an official sponsor of RCRC - of abortion.
One of the pro-abortion arguments we hear is that "a bunch of men shouldn't tell women what to do." Well, how about this? "A bunch of old gays and lesbians shouldn't dictate church teaching about reproduction."
If we are such a respectful church, why are bureaucrats hiding behind closed doors to dictate policy?
Get the facts, friends. Vote Yes for Life in South Dakota. If you are an Episcopalian, your church is lying to you... telling you on the one hand that "all points of view are respected" while selling you out to the pro-abortion side.
