I pass it on to you, in part, so that many of you will know you are not alone. And I pass it on, in part, so that I will know I am not alone. These words are the reason I have considered leaving the PC (USA) several times, and they are one of the reasons I stay here, with my feet firmly planted in the ground. These words are the reason I am wary of all PC (USA) affiliation groups with conservative, evangelical, orthodox, or renewal bents.
These words caused me pain on a day when I could ill afford it.
I am closing this post to comments and simply allowing these words to hang in the air.
To the gentleman who wrote them: The peace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, be with you. Now and always. Amen.
The subject line read "Anathema"
You are a disgrace to the faith. You are an unrepentant sinner in the eyes of God and He does not forgive the unrepentant. If you are a Presbyterian leave the denomination and take your lack of obedience somewhere else. It is queers like you who have denigrated this denomination and have said: "I will rather have half of a dead baby than none of a live and healthy one."
You personally are a disgrace. And you and your ilk have caused me to be ashamed of my denomination.
With no respect for you,xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxRetired PC(USA)
