The Church Owes Gay People an Apology
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/pope-francis-says-roman-catholic-church-should-apologise-to-gay-people-a7105131.html
"Pope Francis has said the Roman Catholic Church owes gay people an apology for the way it has treated them."
Pope Francis has said the Roman Catholic Church owes gay people an apology for the way it has treated them. On a flight from Armenia to Rome, the pontiff recalled Christian teaching and said: "I will repeat what the catechism of the Church says, that they [gay people] should not be discriminated against, they should be respected, accompanied pastorally.” Pope Francis also told reporters the institution should seek forgiveness from other groups it...

When people read the bible it is important to consider historical context. Preoccupation with eternal truth according to outdated legal and social standards results otherwise. The letter to the Romans may have been written by Justin Martyr to Antoninus Pius. That was the second century. There were those in Rome who were developing a "piety" that sought to blame homosexuality for poor political policy. Justin was offering homosexuals as a replacement group for persecution. The Christian canon of scriptures had not yet been formed. It is conceivable that an anti-homosexual platform was grafted into the bible during the formation of the canon that included a genocidal agenda. Consider the story about Sodom and Gomorrah. The men who were insisting on sex with the "angels" didn't even have sex with them. Yet according to the story, they were killed by God. It is inconceivable that One who had issued a commandment against murder would perpetuate genocide out of prejudice. The Church owes gay people an apology insofar as gay people were persecuted due to the stories included in scripture.

Apostolic Succession
http://m.likesuccess.com/quotes/6/289861.png

Who is John Nelson Darby and what does his statement on apostolic succession mean? He was an Anglo-Irish teacher of the bible; who had been a priest in the Church of Ireland, a participant in the Anglican Communion.

He left when his people were required to swear allegiance to King George IV as the king of Ireland.

I believe that he means that the channels of grace are only in the apostolic succession. He was not a catholic or an orthodox Christian, so his statement comes as a surprise.

John Nelson Darby (18 November 1800 – 29 April 1882)
An Anglo-Irish Bible Teacher
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Nelson_Darby
Darby “claimed to have won hundreds of converts to the Church of Ireland. However, the conversions ended when William Magee, the Archbishop of Dublin, ruled that converts were obliged to swear allegiance to George IV as rightful king of Ireland…[He] left the Church of Ireland around 1831…[He] defended Calvinist [8] doctrines when they came under attack from within the Church in which he once served. His biographer Goddard [9] states, "Darby indicates his approval of the doctrine of the Anglican Church as expressed in Article XVII of the Thirty-Nine Articles" on the subject of election and predestination.”


Thirty-Nine Articles
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-nine_Articles
“The Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion are the historically defining statements of doctrines of the Church of England with respect to the controversies of the English Reformation. First established in 1563, the articles served to define the doctrine of the Church of England as it related to Calvinist doctrine and Roman-Catholic practice.”

Article XVII [17]
http://christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/32218/39-articles-of-religion-article-xvii-17
“Predestination to Life is the everlasting purpose of God...they be made sons of God by adoption: they be made like the image of his only-begotten Son Jesus Christ: they walk religiously in good works, and at length, by God's mercy, they attain to everlasting felicity...we must receive God's promises in such wise, as they be generally set forth to us in Holy Scripture: and, in our doings, that Will of God is to be followed, which we have expressly declared unto us in the Word of God.”

--------------------------


Apostolic Succession is not mentioned in the Thirty-Nine Articles. The Church councils are placed under the authority of princes. The Royal Acts of Supremacy declared the monarch of England to be the head of the church for the kingdom. The only two sacraments regarded as authentic are baptism and communion with the eucharist. Thus, the Word of God as expressed by the civil authority, scripture, tradition and the sacraments is regarded as apostolic faith.

The Articles allow for an “evil” priest to be deposed, They declare that the unworthiness of a minister does not effect the administration of the sacrament. This is implicitly essential for the functional health of the community. Inquiry for defrocking is required, but testimony by the accusation of those who “know” the offenses is stated as sufficient.

The Thirty Nine Articles
http://anglicansonline.org/basics/thirty-nine_articles.html

The Roman Catholic Church is reviled in the media as despicable for not doing enough to discipline priests accused of molestation or worse. Still, personal testimony is not proof of guilt. It is conceivable that lay people who don’t like the priest could accuse him or her of sexual assault. Article XXVI condones this action.

Scripture doesn’t express a course of action for the correction of ministers, but the principles for the due process of law require proof for corrective action. I agree that no one in a church community should have to suffer sexual assault, but a minister can’t function as an authority if he can be deposed by false accusation.


Predestination denies the existence of free will. If everything is predestined to happen as determined by the eternal will of deity, then we don’t have choice. It is an illusion. Article X affirms this conclusion. It asserts that there is no free will without the grace of God by Christ.

Irenaeus
https://orthodoxwiki.org/Irenaeus_of_Lyons
“ Irenaeus was one of the first Christian writers to refer to the principle of Apostolic Succession to
refute his opponents. [He] is remembered as the second bishop of Lyons, although there is no clear evidence that he ever officially assumed the episcopal duties. The first bishop, Pothinus, was martyred around 177 during persecutions under Marcus Aurelius, when Irenaeus was visiting Rome.”

Irenaeus on Apostolic Succession
http://www.catholicapologetics.info/apologetics/general/apfathers.htm
““Those that wish to discern the truth may observe the apostolic tradition made manifest in every church throughout the world. We can enumerate those who were appointed bishops in the churches by the apostles, and their successors down to our own day, who never taught, and never knew, absurdities such as these men produce. For if the apostles had known hidden mysteries which they taught the perfect in private and in secret they would rather have committed them to those to whom the entrusted the churches.”

Apostolic Succession
https://orthodoxwiki.org/Apostolic_succession
“Apostolic succession is the tracing of a direct line of apostolic ordination, Orthodox doctrine, and full communion from the Apostles to the current episcopacy of the Orthodox Church.”

The Orthodox Church has a continuum that extends back to apostolic authority, but protests against certain additions to the core faith and deficiencies in development in ecclesiology are valid. All seven sacraments are not necessary for salvation. Confession is particular still holds risk for participants, the priest and the general community even if it is declared sacred. Asceticism as mortification of the flesh is not required for membership in the Church. Contributions to the Church do not repair offenses against members of the church or the general community.

Defining the priesthood as for males only is sexist. There is nothing that a female administrator can’t do in the office of the priest. Ecclesiological developments have to conform to that which is right about the development of the civil code of law. It is time for the Roman and Eastern Orthodox Churches to ordain women to the priesthood.

Pragmatism has an appeal insofar as it provides a counterpoint to idealism. Let an ideal run rampant and it can reek havoc on reality. There has to be a way to moderate that influence. Practical values give an anchor to affordability and accountability for responsible behavior. That is to say we have an anchor when we choose to use it.

Pragmatism results in a poor societal outcome because it makes practicality the ideal in terms of dollars and cents. Anything else is treated as having no sense. This gives the money makers control over our behavior as well as over our government.

Monetary Values
http://www.azquotes.com/picture-quotes/quote-pragmatism-asks-its-usual-question-grant-an-idea-or-belief-to-be-true-it-says-what-concrete-william-james-36-63-81.jpg

Pragmatism
http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/pragmatism/
"Pragmatism was a philosophical tradition that originated in the United States around 1870. The most important of the ‘classical pragmatists’ were Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914), William James (1842–1910) and John Dewey (1859–1952). The influence of pragmatism declined during the first two thirds of the twentieth century, but it has undergone a revival since the 1970s with philosophers being increasingly willing to use the writings and ideas of the classical pragmatists..."

William James (1842-1910)
http://www.iep.utm.edu/james-o/
"William James is considered by many to be the most insightful and stimulating of American philosophers, as well as the second of the three great pragmatists (the middle link between Charles Sanders Peirce and John Dewey)."

James will advocate that pragmatism is radical empiricism. It is true as an argument, but it becomes the ultimate reification. Pragmatism subtends capitalism as a theory, yet denies real existence to any other form of thought. Rationalism is minimized as a philosophy. So are the central values for the republic.

The Tender and the Tough Minded
http://www.gutenberg.org/files/5116/5116-h/5116-h.htm
"I will write these traits down in two columns. I think you will practically recognize the two types of mental make-up that I mean if I head the columns by the titles 'tender-minded' and 'tough-minded' respectively.

"THE TENDER-MINDED
Rationalistic (going by 'principles'), Intellectualistic, Idealistic, Optimistic, Religious, Free-willist, Monistic, Dogmatical.

"THE TOUGH-MINDED
Empiricist (going by 'facts'), Sensationalistic, Materialistic, Pessimistic, Irreligious, Fatalistic, Pluralistic, Sceptical.

"Pray postpone for a moment the question whether the two contrasted mixtures which I have written down are each inwardly coherent and self-consistent or not—I shall very soon have a good deal to say on that point. It suffices for our immediate purpose that tender-minded and tough-minded people, characterized as I have written them down, do both exist."

The difficulty is that pragmatism overstates the value of the decisions made by the leading banker in American society. Making money becomes the ideal. Any expense is disregarded as long as it benefits the leader. Thus, we end up with a monster machine that pretends to having ideals as the mode for operation, but produces atrocities in foreign and domestic policy. The basic operating principle ends up being, make the choice that costs society the most, but yields the lowest value with respect for life.

Look at the images for socialism with google search. It is either equated with communism or fascism. Both are regarded as radical economic agendas bent on the destruction of freedom. Private control of government by the wealthiest citizens is posited as the cure for the evil that caused the second world war.

The trouble is that privatized control of government is simply non-Axis fascism. Instead of seeking the immediate extermination of the Jews as the targeted group, they are working long term genocide against Muslims as the alternative.

Democratic Socialism
http://www.berniesandersvideo.com/uploads/8/9/4/8/8948721/9252917_orig.jpg

I was a social worker for over ten years. Socialism is not an extremist agenda. It is a regulated program that provides for basic needs.

Spending on missiles for the destruction of cities in Libya and Syria has extended beyond an anti-socialist's worst nightmare about spending on social security.

When you get right down to it, the major religions of the world advocate for socialism as a means to provide sustenance as mercy for those who are being trumped by the excesses of a capitalist economy.

Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism advocate for peace with mercy and justice. Christianity and Islam are being contrasted by the war on terror in the most disproportionate of ways. The argument in the main stream media started out by saying that not all Muslims are terrorists.

The dominant message since then has been that all terrorists are Muslims. The death toll has been played as a story somewhere beneath the subdued stories about multi-billion dollar missile contracts. Sometimes even killing combatants is murder. When they have no chance to defend themselves from lethal attack, it is not a contest of merit on the field of battle. It is slaughter or massacre.

Christians and Muslims believe in God's mercy.
http://www.christiantoday.com/article/christians.muslims.both.believe.in.gods.mercy.and.compassion.roman.catholic.bishop.says/88729.htm
"At a time when some personalities are equating the religion of Islam to violence and terrorism, a Roman Catholic bishop spoke of how Muslims, like Christians, also believe in a merciful and compassionate God."

Gaokao
http://chineseculture.about.com/od/historyofchina/fl/The-Gaokao.htm
"The gaokao system has also been accused of regional bias, primarily because schools often set quotas for the number of students they will take from each province, and students from their home province have more available spaces than students from remote provinces. Since the best schools, both high schools and colleges, are mostly in cities like Beijing and Shanghai, this effectively means that students lucky enough to live in those areas are better-prepared to take the gaokao and are able to enter China’s top universities with a lower score than would be needed by students from other provinces."
China's college entrance exam is a grueling 2-3 days long, but it's vitally important for any kid who wants to go to college.

Pragmatism is a form of vampirism.
http://topfamousquotes.com/images/topic/201508/pragmatic-quotes-3.jpg

Farage, the Radical Pragmatist
http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/28/europe/uk-brexit-eu-referendum/
""I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives or worked in business or worked in trade or indeed ever created a job. But listen, just listen," said Farage, to boos."

Politicians who are trained in law have a large responsibility. It is work that most people avoid based on the size of the effort in relation to accountability for results. Somehow, radical pragmatists would have us believe that workers who they won't allow to participate in the decision making process work, while elected officials who make decisions when they aren't doing what the lead banker tells them to do, don't work.

Were it not for the deregulation of capitalism and the inclusion of the "government" in the economic benefit from the profit from violent aggression, politicians would not be regarded with as much disfavor by the public. It is however the bankers who are making the decisions to deregulate capitalism even further who deserve to be disrespected. If you don't read DRathsChild's puppetry behind Brexit, you aren't paying attention. He ought to be indicted in Britain as well as France.

The random test of a Diebold scanner as released on YouTube was substantive enough to warrant more tests. If the one test was more than a fluke, then votes are not even being counted electronically, This shows a rampant disregard for election as a democratic process. Removing the popular vote from the decision making process for the Executive Office and Congress pushes us even further from representative participation. The voting system as it is doesn't give people enough of a voice to be heard. Only the paper ballots retain the measure of what people have said with our votes.

The expression of western concern for violations of human rights is reserved for those who refuse to subscribe to the doctrine for destruction as an economic principle.
http://i.quoteaddicts.com/media/q3/722871.png

China
http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jun/27/uk-should-rethink-china-friendship-over-human-rights-tory-group-urges "Britain should reconsider its “golden” friendship with China as a result of the unprecedented human rights crisis unfolding under president Xi Jinping, Conservative party MPs will warn this week."

It's not as though global concern for rights disappears due to western aggression, but the invasion and occupation of the Middle East trump violations by others.

Pyongyang, North Korea
http://www.voanews.com/content/un-office-builds-human-rights-case-against-pyongyang/3393508.html
"In 2014 a U.N. Commission of Inquiry (COI) on human rights in North Korea issued a report documenting a network of political prisons in the country holding 120,000 people and a list of atrocities that include “extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence.”"

The UN commission investigated Korea with extreme skepticism regarding their reports about the state of their republic. Imagine a very low criminal rate being treated as high because DRockyFella and DRathsChild are determined to make socialism the greatest evil on the planet.

Translations of the Constitutions for the Chinese and North Korean Republic are sure to use the word dictatorship in the description of their law. The difficulty with this is that they refuse to participate in the a capitalist economy that is run with the doctrine for destruction as the key characteristic for a robust economy.

Britain is not as bad as the US in implementing the doctrine for destruction, but Brexit signals a strengthening of the US-British alliance.
https://www.hrw.org/news/2016/06/24/uk-should-stand-human-rights-values-after-brexit-vote "“The referendum vote signals Britain’s withdrawal from the institutions of the EU, but it provides no mandate for Britain to abandon its human rights commitments at home or abroad. Nor is it a mandate for British withdrawal from the European Convention on Human Rights and the Council of Europe – critical institutions that have protected and upheld fundamental freedoms for millions of people across Europe, including in Britain, over six decades."

Plutocracy was grafted into the Constitution.
http://www.relatably.com/q/img/andrew-jackson-quotes-on-banks/president-andrew-jackson.jpg

The stage was set for the establishment of a bank to control the government for their economy when the US Constitution was written. While the Fed did not exist at the time, the composition of the plan for government left some critical openings for rule by the wealthy with the overproduction of munitions.

The Constitution is a wonderful compendium of abstractions that combine three branches for the separation of powers and lists a number of rights that make the republic democratic. It is however flawed insofar as it reduces the mechanics of the operation to claims to absolute power by a select few from outside the government.

This artifice was achieved with the abstraction of the doctrine of destruction as stated by John Locke. He used the statement, ‘I can destroy those who would destroy me.’ as a way to compete with continental powers in imperial expansion. The slave trade was a large part of competition for expansion. Locke’s statement was also an abstraction of genocidal policy as grafted into the bible during the assembly of the canon of scripture during the Roman occupation.

Madison co-opted the statement with the war powers clause, when he wrote that Congress has the power to declare war. Congress has only declared war a number of times, but the separation of powers subordinates decision making for military action to those who control the munitions industry.

The power for that control has been taken by the leadership for the private banking system. They seek to control federal policy with the Fed, but campaign, lobbying and media expression contributions manipulate the candidates for elected and appointed offices.

The Louisiana Purchase nearly doubled the size of the nation in 1803.
http://www.legendsofamerica.com/we-westwardexpansion.html
“President Thomas Jefferson nearly doubled the size of the nation by negotiating a price of $15 million to purchase 828,800 square miles from France, including all or part of 14 current states”

Jefferson set a tone by sending Lewis and Clarke on an expedition to map a course to the Pacific Ocean. It was a diplomatic mission. They were sent with gifts and instructed to show respect for the natives.

Westward expansion however was doomed as a cooperative enterprise. The British and French monarchies had stipulated respect for the rights of native Americans. This precedent set an example for early legislation and treaties.

The parliaments and some aristocrats however were playing tribal conflict with rival tribes and settlers from the respective realms for their competitive advantage. Treaties could be formed with the best of intents, but when settlers were not being pushed to take more land, tribes were being told to stop the settlers from taking more land by ‘advisers.’

Banks were in a position to make the most money with investments in respective businesses. Their best bet for controlling the economy for the nation however laid in the means for destruction of opposition in conflict. Whoever controlled profit from the production of weapons and munitions would control the decision making process.

This set the stage for Andrew Jackson’s statement, “The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me. I will kill it.” (1832)
http://www.relatably.com/q/img/andrew-jackson-quotes-on-banks/president-andrew-jackson.jpg


Cornelius Hill was born into a political climate for plutocratic change in Wisconsin 1834.

Reduction towards Removal
http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/turningpoints/tp-018/?action=more_essay
“Prior to the Black Hawk War in 1832, Indians primarily inhabited much of Wisconsin. By the mid nineteenth century, though, Indians had been induced to cede most of their lands to the federal government. Some were relocated west of the Mississippi River. Thus, the settlement of Wisconsin by European immigrants was preceded and made possible by the coerced reduction of tribal lands and the forced removal of Indian populations.”

Tribes were not only played against the Americans by British and French “traders,” they were played off against each other by the US government.
https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/minority-health/population/amind-pophistory.htm
“The tension between tribes was created because the United States government had used them against each other to gain more lands.”

Cornelius was assimilated by religion, but he learned English and used his status to argue in behalf of native rights to land.

Learned English
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill
“Cornelius Hill was born on tribal lands in Wisconsin and baptised in due course by missionary bishop Jackson Kemper. In 1843, Episcopal missionary the Rev. James Lloyd Breck escorted the ten-year-old and two other boys to the newly established Nashotah House to learn English and be educated for five years.”

He was born into the Oneida tribe. The Oneida were with the Iroquois confederacy in New York state. They were known for their longhouses and communal lifestyle. They were not opposed to settlement.

Agriculture
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill#Career
“Hill also helped tribal members learn new farming techniques and secure machinery. Women also made baskets and beadwork for sale, and after 1900 learned to make lace to support themselves in the modernized world.”

The Dawes Act of 1887 divided tribal allocations into individual properties. It was a way of reducing the land protected by treaties. It was also part of the movement to assimilate native Americans in European American traditions.

Exposure to European American Culture
http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/turningpoints/tp-050/?action=more_essay
“ Instead of tribal land belonging to the whole tribe, it was broken up and given to individuals. After the allotment process was completed, the federal government sold the "excess" land to whites to help expose Indians to the civilizing effects of mainstream American society.”

And More
http://www.historytoday.com/andrew-boxer/native-americans-and-federal-government#sthash.rPkCYhaL.dpuf
“Federal policy was enshrined in the General Allotment (Dawes) Act of 1887 which decreed that Indian Reservation land was to be divided into plots and allocated to individual Native Americans. These plots could not be sold for 25 years, but reservation land left over after the distribution of allotments could be sold to outsiders.”

Cornelius used his knowledge of tribal history from New York and his communication skills to defend native allocations.

Defense from Fraud
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill#Career
“As had happened in New York State, unscrupulous persons often tried to swindle tribal members out of their allocations. Throughout his life, Hill fought such dismemberment of tribal property, as well as government attempts to move his people further west.”

Hill was ordained a priest in 1903. He was the first from his tribe.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornelius_Hill#Career
“On June 24, 1903, Bishop Grafton ordained Hill as a priest, the first of his people; during the ceremony Hill repeated his vows in his native language.”

Cornelius Hill died in 1907. The country had gone through a number of changes during his lifetime. Manifest Destiny was used to press westward expansion to the Pacific coast. A national bank was established at the end of the Civil War to help control the government by private interests. The Dawes Act promoted a policy of aggressive assimilation.

Natives were not recognized as citizens throughout the nineteenth century..
https://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/presentationsandactivities/presentations/immigration/native_american4.html
“Despite their welcome to serve in the Union Army, Native Americans were not recognized as U.S. citizens throughout the nineteenth century. A clause in the Fourteenth Amendment “excluding Indians not taxed” prevented Native American men from receiving the right to vote when African-American men gained suffrage in 1868.”

The doctrine for destruction was veiled by the abstraction of the war powers clause, but it was evident in the policy of slavery for African Americans and genocide for native Americans who resisted assimilation.

Capitalist economic theory was the override for civil rights and moral civility. The leading banker used the claim to absolute power to increase control over the government and to start the global extension of capitalism as the economic rule of law for other lands as well.
