National Cathedral Leader:
‘Homophobia’ a Sin; Same-Sex
Marriages Will Be Performed

Cybercast News Service, by Penny Starr

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/7/2013 9:19:22 PM

The Very Rev. Gary Hall, chief ecclesiastical leader and executive officer of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., said in a sermon on Sunday that “homophobia” and “heterosexism” are sins. “In its wisdom, the church came to its senses and labeled both racism and sexism as sinful,” Hall said. “And now we find ourselves at the last barrier—call that barrier homophobia, call it heterosexism. “We must now have the courage to take the final step and call homophobia and heterosexism what they are,” Hall said. “They are sin. “Homophobia is a sin,” Hall said. “Heterosexism is a sin.

My late mother was a big supporter of the National Cathedral. She´s probably spinning in her grave right now.

They still send money appeals to my house (my mom´s last address). Every one goes straight into the trash.

I hope people realize that the National Cathedral is Episcopal.

Hall is one of the (many) reasons people are leaving the Episcopal church.

Rev. Hall, I beg to differ. We are not at the last barrier, and you know it. Why, how many years down the road before we are told how evil and sinful we are to be against pedophelia? How dare we stand between man/boy love or woman/boy love or, you get the idea.
No, Rev. Hall, we are not at the last barrier yet. The last one will be the one between man and damnation. It will fall fairly easily I predict.

I hope no one thought the National Cathedral was a bastion of Spiritual truth. It is not the cathedral of traditional Christianity; it is the cathedral of secular feel-good humanism, the broad path that leads to destruction.

The latest pronouncement from the Church of Anything Goes. The Episcopal Church committed theological suicide in 1979 when it revised the Book of Common Prayer. It is now a zombie church. An empty dead body walking around, waiting to fall, and consuming unsuspecting Christians in the meantime. Run away!! Run Away!!

God is not likely to undo what was given as law in the Old Testament times. He is the same-yesterday, today and forever and does not vary. If he did, imagine the arguments at the judgement bar. Man cannot make moral what God has decreed to be immoral.

Right, #4. The Bible (aka, the Torah, the Old Testament) says in Leviticus that homosexuality is an "abomination". and in Genesis says that a man should take a wife and ´be fruitful and multiply.´ These so-called clergymen today are defiling our faith, defiling our holy scriptures, and in general just make it up as they go along, happily skipping down the path to perdition. Hey Rev, leave me out of your self-righteous, nauseating preaching...

Shaming people for whom they love is a sin...

How long has it been since we were told it´s okay for straight couples to live together without the commitment of marriage? That there is no shame? And all forms of birth control should be celebrated to separate the act of love and procreation from just ´fun and recreational sport´?

But Mom, I love him and we´ll get married eventually...

This slippery slope didn´t start with the gays, folks.

Didn´t know a leftist liberal Nary Revrum could trump an Old Testament anointed man of God (Moses), and an Apostle (Paul) when it came to matters of Scripture.

Revrum, the burden of proof is on YOU. Please show me in Scripture where "homophobia" (whatever that is) is mentioned as a "sin."

“Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.” ~ James 3:1

Meaning, clergy will face a stricter standard of judgment and harsher punishment because false teaching can destroy the faith of those being taught.

#19. You are aware that Hall is Episcopalian, aren´t you? The seat of the Catholic Dioceses in Washington DC is the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, not the National Cathedral. Although when Catholics conduct a service of national importance the venue is most often Washington DC´s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

Modern revisionists such as the very stupid Rev. Hall are one reason Pope Bendict XVI created the Anglican ordinariate, making it possible for clergy and lay people to embrace Catholicism while retaining many aspects of Anglican tradition.

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered.

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that
