Church of England finds some sympathy for the devil as it downplays Satan in bid to modernize
The Church of England is ditching cassocks – and even the Devil – as its drive to modernize gathers momentum.
Vicars will be allowed to conduct communion services in more casual clothing, including jeans, after the Church agreed this weekend to review existing rules on clerical vestments.
The General Synod has also backed an alternative baptism service which leaves out mention of the Devil, in an attempt to appeal to people who have no religious background.
The Rt Rev Robert Paterson, Bishop of Sodor and Man, said the change was needed because many people now viewed Satan as nothing more than a “cartoon-like character.”
But this has not pleased all of the faithful. Alison Ruoff, a senior member of the General Synod, said: “I want and beg you to bring back the Devil.”
The Synod, meeting in York, voted to begin the process of relaxing canon law to make traditional vestments optional for some formal services.
Supporters of the move who include the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, hope that allowing more clergy to adopt casual clothing will attract more members and encourage the growth of new “alternative” congregations meeting in cafes, pubs and even at outdoor venues.
But opponents of the change warned that abandoning obligatory robes would simply leave damage the dignity of the Church and leave it looking “slovenly”.
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, whose own approach to clerical dress included cutting up his dog collar on live television, cautioned against embarking on lengthy revision of rules, which he said were already flexible.
There is no rule specifically requiring clergy to wear dog collars but canon law does insist on robes while priests are administering the Eucharist or conducting morning and evening prayers at Sunday services.
Synod members voted overwhelmingly to revise the canon after hearing accounts of growing congregation in churches which adopt informal styles.
The Rev Christopher Hobbs, who tabled the motion, said that while he liked wearing robes they were not suitable for all settings.
“For Holy Communion there is no flexibility,” he said.
“It makes no difference whether it is cafe-style, in a pub, outside in a field, in a hotel lounge or lobby – surplice and alb is required, with scarf or stole.”
But there was an outburst of laughter and applause as a nattily dressed Rev Neil Patterson, a rector from Herefordshire, stood up to address the Synod wearing red trousers, a mustard-coloured jacket and striped shirt.
He told the gathering: “I chose to dress this evening as a demonstration of some of the risks of allowing clergy to indulge their personality too freely.”

As much as I detest people like Glenn Beck, I guess I owe him a ‘thank you’ for getting the attention of Christians.
My first question is – Why are Christians watching Glenn “media whore” Beck in the first place?
As much as I dislike Beck and everything he stands for, he is absolutely correct in this instance. (wouldn’t consider wasting a moment watching his drivel)
WHY did he say what he said?
Beck works for those who wish to destroy America, Freedom and the Christian faith.
He was taking the pulse of the Christian community to see where they stand and if they are committed to destroying America, Freedom and the Christian Faith. Well, if you are a misinformed Christian, you passed the test with flying colours – congratulations.
You have been conned into following the wishes of the NWO, which is about as anti-Christian as you can get.
At top of this blog you will find a link to the Green Agenda. Read it and understand it.
Freedom 21 Santa Cruz is the last video on the sidebar. Watch it and understand it.
Then, run, don’t walk, from your place of worship.
Those who wish to rule the world want a One World Religion – it’s not Christianity folks.
Outraged by Glenn Beck’s Salvo, Christians Fire Back
New York Times
Glenn Beck urged Christians to leave churches that used what he called code words for Communism and Nazism. This week the remarks prompted outrage from several Christian bloggers. The Rev. Jim Wallis , who leads the liberal Christian antipoverty group Sojourners, in Washington, called on Christians to leave Glenn Beck. “What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show,” Mr. Wallis wrote on his blog, God’s…
Christians Boycott Beck for Church Bashing
For Glenn Beck, it may have just been business as usual when he compared “social justice” to Communism and Nazism
Christians Urged to Boycott Glenn BeckBy LAURIE GOODSTEIN
4:51 p.m. | Updated Last week, the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck called on Christians to leave their churches if they heard any preaching about social or economic justice because, he claimed, those were slogans affiliated with Nazism and Communism.
This week, the Rev. Jim Wallis, a liberal evangelical leader in Washington, D.C., called on Christians to leave Glenn Beck.
“What he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show,” Mr. Wallis, who heads the antipoverty group Sojourners, wrote on his “God’s Politics” blog. “His show should now be in the same category as Howard Stern.”
Mr. Beck, in vilifying churches that promote “social justice,” managed to insult just about every mainline Protestant, Roman Catholic, African-American, Hispanic and Asian congregation in the country — not to mention plenty of evangelical ones.
(Newser) – For Glenn Beck, it may have just been business as usual when he compared “social justice” to Communism and Nazism last week and told parishioners to leave churches that espouse the doctrine, but the comments irked one leader enough for him to call for a boycott by all Christians. Rev. Jim Wallis heads Sojourners, a Christian antipoverty group. Whatever Beck’s reasons, he writes on his blog, “what he has said attacks the very heart of our Christian faith, and Christians should no longer watch his show.”
Christians Outraged: Say They Will Turn Off Glenn Beck
Conservative television pundit Glenn Beck made a call to Christians in his broadcast last week, to leave their churches if they were preaching about social and economic justice, which, he explained in an attempt to enlighten the ignorant, are merely fascist code words.
Beck’s remarks prompted outrage from several Christian bloggers. One Christian minister made a call to Christians to leave Glenn Beck, and said it is likely his show now ranks with the likes of Howard Stern.
Editor: The “Green Movement/Satanists/UN/NWO know no bounds. They took the Bible and desecrated it for their purposes.
To celebrate my 500th post I decided to re-post my first.
In my fist post I posed the Question – Are wind farms a scam.
After much research, time and effort, I can confidently answer my own question with a resounding YES.
Is global warming a scam as well? – YES.
If you want to be ruled by unelected officials from the UN then embrace the scam.
If you want freedom for your country you must reject the UN – One World Order and One World Religion.
Get to work educating your friends and neighbors.
Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas!
I would like you to learn all you can about Wind Farms and Wind Energy.
Why the big rush for wind power?
Which Green is it about?
Is it about Green energy or is it about the Green money?
I hoped it was about Green Energy but the more I investigate the matter the more it looks like it’s about the Green Money.
Make A Comment: ( 1 so far )
I received the Christmas poem below via an email this morning, and it makes a legitimate point.
The boys at the UN want a ‘One World Government’ and a ‘One World Religion’ – and Christianity is not the one they want. Therefore it must be made to disappear.
Most Christians have no idea what is going on, nor do they understand that their religion is being undermined via the ‘Green Movement’.
The ‘Green Movement’ after all, is not about the environment so much as it is a new religion. That new religion is Pagan- based on the Earth Goddess Gaia.
Please understand – It’s the UN and its minions that want a “One World Religion’ – not the other religions of the world.
“Politicians of all stripes have sold their souls and they are being collected at the gates of the UN”. R J Stephens
Enjoy the poem and your Christmas!
*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*It might hurt people’s feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ‘Holiday’.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe’s the word Christmas – was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny’s and Sears*
*You won’t hear the word Christmas; it won’t touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now20Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate ‘Winter Break’ under your ‘Dream Tree’*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
Not Happy Holiday!*
Please, all Christians join together and
Wish everyone you meet during the
Christ is ‘ The Reason ‘ for the Christ-mas Season!
