AGI) – Oslo, Oct.2 – The bishops of Norway’s Lutheran Church have voted in favour of gay pastors, with six votes for and five against. Hence the Norwegian Episcopal Conference has endorsed the fact that gays living an officially registered union may serve as chaplains, deacons, pastors and even bishops. The decision goes against the doctrine that has so far been prevailing in the Church of Norway, which ruled out officially gay people. The final word will be up to the synod of the Lutheran bishops, to meet from 12 to 17 November.

I wonder if +Iker knows?
Panel advises splitting from U.S. Episcopal Church

FORT WORTH — A committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth recommended Monday that the diocese leave the U.S. Episcopal Church and affiliate with another province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Because the proposal involves a constitutional change, it would first have to be approved at the diocese’s annual convention Nov. 16-17 and again in 2008, Bishop Jack Iker said….
In a statement, the Rev. Ryan Reed, president of the diocese’s Standing Committee, said: “The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth has always been a traditional, conservative diocese, adhering to the beliefs and practices of the historic catholic faith. This means it has often found itself in conflict with decisions of the General Convention, which has continued a series of innovations in liturgy, theology, and the sacraments.

“To submit to and comply with the current direction of the General Convention would mean for us to embrace a distortion of the Christian faith that our forebears would not recognize as a continuation of the Apostles’ teaching and fellowship.”

Sigh. Go with God, and run yer asses off before TEH GAY catches up with all y’all. It seems to be spreading worldwide. Wait till it gets to NIGERIA.

    This is already the case in the Church of Sweden and among the Old Catholics. And, let us not forget, the Anglican Church of Melanesia.
