Mirror, mirror, on the wall....

...who’s the fairest of them all? - Neither Church nor State that's for sure. Both are engaging in absurd distortions of reality.

General Synod paper GS Misc 1178 provides an "update" on ‘Welcoming Transgender People’, as if they are not welcome already, using the now familiar propaganda techniques of exploiting the 'victim' status - see earlier entry - just as the LGBT lobby has done to secure a dedicated chaplaincy and "a safe, sacred space for our LGBTI+ friends to share their stories, explore their faith and enjoy time together with no fear of judgement" -  [click here and scroll down to "Open Table come as you are"].

In July 2017 the General Synod carried, "with strong support in all three Houses, a motion brought forward by the Blackburn Diocesan Synod, that this Synod, recognising the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed in their parish church, call on the House of Bishops to consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared to mark a person’s gender transition."

'Theblaze' summerises how the Church of England’s House of Bishops voted on Tuesday to block the creation of a new liturgy to celebrate gender transition. Bishops were urged instead to use the existing baptism rite as a way to mark the passage. Dodging the concept of second baptisms the Church of England has instead given the green light to using existing liturgies similar to the way gay unions are being blessed with all the outward appearances of church marriages.

The State, as in NHS England, is also pandering to fashion as if money were no object in offering biological males a smear test for cervical cancer if they identify as females, even though they do not have female organs, while women who could be at risk but identify as men are not being routinely offered potentially life saving NHS screening for breast and cervical cancer amid fears it might offend them.

If people want to ignore their biological sex they are free to do so but they should not expect others to engage in their fantasies. Cervical Cancer Prevention Week from 22-28 January.


  1. So now even the sacrament of baptism is not beyond being fiddled about with according to the CofE protectors of orthodoxy?

      Marriage has been distorted.
      Confirmation is no longer necessary.
      Baptism is being redefined.
      Before you know it they'll be doing away with Good Friday next.

  2. The great Christian faith delivered to us by the great and godly saints is fast becoming a joke and a secular cult called 'Love wins'. It is another gospel powerless to save and no gospel at all.

  3. Opening question should read:

    Who is the fairyest of them all?

    1. Believe you me James, the vast silenced majority of us stuck here with this deviant and distorted point of view force-fed to us daily by the BBC, Church and State are not sure this IS the home of our ancient forefathers anymore.
      My grandfathers and their grandfathers before them are in their graves spinning with dismay and cringing in shame.
