General Convention, Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Advocacy Peace & Justice, Thomas Prater says: Frank Harrison says: Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL July 10, 2018 at 11:00 am Any American citizen breaking the law risks having their children removed from them and placed in state or foster care. That’s the law. I don’t understand the logic that its not OK to remove children from non-citizens illeagally entering our country but its ok to apply that penalty to American citizens. We don’t even know for sure that the illegal immigrant is actually the parent of the child that is accompany them. July 10, 2018 at 10:38 am I would remind you that child separation is a CONSEQUENCE of CURRENT immigration law. I would further remind you that the President is oath bound to ENFORCE THE LAW. So you would condemn someone for doing what the oath says he must do?I will remind you that, legally, he really had no choice. Start writing you congressmen to change the law. That’s the way it works in this country. Do NOT be guilty of spreading half-truths or untruths if you intend to be Christian. July 10, 2018 at 3:58 pm I’m a millennial, and I’m a proud Episcopalian. I want nothing to do with a schismatic denomination that does not affirm me as a gay Christian and thinks my relationships are sinful. It is not true that our denomination is for old Democrats. Just because conservatives are angry that they can’t make this church in their image does not mean that it is for liberals only. Refugees Migration & Resettlement Curate Diocese of Nebraska Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Matt Ouellette says: July 10, 2018 at 9:55 am I note with interest that when faced with a government that uses child torture as an official policy, the commenters above are outraged by……. a church taking a stand for the children. I would challenge you to think about where exactly your faith is. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Frank Harrision says: Submit an Event Listing Featured Jobs & Calls July 10, 2018 at 4:18 pm I meant to say sanctuary churches, not cities. That’s a whole different issue. July 10, 2018 at 6:55 pm It’s cruel and unjust according to international law:https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/05/world/americas/us-un-migrant-children-families.htmlAlso, the vast majority of Americans disagree with the policy:https://www.cbsnews.com/news/two-thirds-of-americans-say-separating-children-parents-at-border-unacceptable/And the vast majority of the separations are occurring to families looking for legal asylum, not illegal immigrants, so it is not as simple as saying they shouldn’t break the law. July 9, 2018 at 4:44 pm If I am reading this correctly the EC’s resolutions are to encourage illegal immigration by breaking Federal immigration laws and to allow churches to aid and abet the breaking of immigration laws by providing sanctuary and harboring fugitives. All that the Bishops and deputies need to do is to to vote FOR these resolutions to become complicit while ignoring there is a proper way to come into our country. What has the EC become? July 10, 2018 at 12:30 pm Thanks for the invitation, but I prefer to stay where I am. But tell me, are your parishes attracting a lot of “millennials?” I have read some things that lead me to believe that “millennials” who grew up in the mainline protestant churches are largely embracing either more traditional forms of worship or non-denominational churches if they aren’t particularly liturgical in their outlook. Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector Columbus, GA John Hobart says: Richard Smith says: Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Matt Ouellette says: Rector Washington, DC General Convention 2018, Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH July 12, 2018 at 8:42 pm Almost all denominations are shrinking due to the fall of Christendom, so it has nothing to do with our politics. I don’t think standing up for the poor, immigrants, refugees, and the marginalized are progressive values. They are Christian values. If conservatives don’t want to stand by those groups because they perceive that doing so is progressive, that’s their problem. Most of these things shouldn’t be viewed as left vs. right, but right vs. wrong. July 10, 2018 at 9:56 am I have long held that the American flag should not be in the sanctuary, as that is fairly clearly rendering unto Caesar what is God’s. Rector Albany, NY Comments are closed. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS John Hobart says: Daniel Ward says: Richard Smith says: July 9, 2018 at 4:53 pm “What has the EC become?” Well, certainly something far different than what it was when I was confirmed over 60 years ago. On the other hand, I am still hoping that there is something left of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church to which we pledge ourselves in the creed. Rector Shreveport, LA July 9, 2018 at 4:43 pm The United States is not a theocracy. Churches cannot create or enforce civil law. No matter how many “resolutions” are passed by a church these hold no civil weight. This being the case is one reason to take “complaints” to the voting booth. Another is this. There are many good Episcopalians who strongly disagree with one another in the area of civic politics. Some disagree on an end being sought whilst others disagree on the means suggested to achieve that end. Introducing political resolutions, therefore, at the General Convention may well be a strong factor in splitting more the church and driving good people out. Just some thoughts to consider.

According to Pew and other sources PCUSA is getting older, more progressive, and fewer. It is well that one individual young person likes the Episcopal Church, but if the church is to survive as an institution we are going to have to appeal to a much broader segment of society. I think that our incessant talk about politics and culture wars and what not is hastening our demise. I don’t think the conservatives are angry because they can’t make the church in their image, they are angry because the church has been made in the image of progressives. We need to leave our images behind and focus on the Image of God. One only needs to read the coverage of the General Convention to realize that we are an angry, bitter, and divided denomination. I can’t believe that that is the Image of God, but it is the Image that we project and that is why so few want to join us. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Bath, NC Youth Minister Lorton, VA July 10, 2018 at 4:22 pm No, it is not. No previous administration felt that it was necessary to separate children from their parents at the border:http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2018/jun/19/matt-schlapp/no-donald-trumps-separation-immigrant-families-was/ Matt Ouellette says: This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 July 10, 2018 at 4:25 pm In my opinion, it is definitely in line with PB Curry’s message of love to stand up for the children who have been hurt by our country’s draconian immigration policies. The Rev. Devon Anderson, deputy from Minnesota, and Julia Ayala Harris, deputy from Oklahoma, stand outside the Hutto detention center in Taylor, Texas, before a prayer service July 8. Photo: House of Deputies News[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] And then there were three – three immigration-related resolutions from the Social Justice and United States Policy Committee, including two that were taken off consent calendars and will be open for discussion in the House of Bishops and House of Deputies at the 79th General Convention.The three resolutions combine parts of several resolutions on immigration into broad, forceful statements on the issues of separation of families in immigrant detention, the sanctuary church movement, and the dignity of immigrants in the face of federal policies that, deputies and bishops say, go against the Episcopal Church’s Christian values.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.In some cases, the resolutions deliberately point backward to resolutions passed by previous General Conventions, both to underscore the church’s ongoing engagement with these issues and to highlight recent government policies that have given Episcopalians a new sense of urgency.“Much of the work we were asked to do was essentially reaffirming the work of past General Conventions,” Daniel Valdez, a deputy from the Diocese of Los Angeles and committee member, said July 9 during deliberations on the resolutions. “Sadly, our voices haven’t been loud enough where a change has been made.”The committee’s votes to move these resolutions to full legislative consideration comes a day after more than 1,000 bishops, deputies and other Episcopalians traveled by busload and carload to a prayer vigil held outside an immigrant detention facility a little more than a half-hour from Austin. The vigil on July 8 was organized to engage in prayerful witness to the plight of immigrant parents and children who have been separated from each other after being detained under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.The administration’s decision to separate children from their parents in detention caused a national uproar in the spring, prompting President Donald Trump to issue an executive order to keep families together when they are arrested on the border, though the status of those families in detention remains an ongoing debate.Resolution A178 specifically condemns such treatment of women and children in unambiguous language.“The U.S. government’s intensification of and implementation of punitive immigration policies and practices, such as the detention and separation of children from parents and the practice of housing children in military bases, is inhumane and unjust, and only serves to traumatize the vulnerable, especially women and children,” the resolution says before urging the Office of Government Relations and all Episcopalians to advocate for those families.The Rev. Brian Chace, a deputy from Eastern Michigan and member of the domestic policy committee, argued for moving the resolution forward without amendment, citing the acute crisis, the need to stand with the children and the resolution’s prominent proposer – the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president.The committee agreed and voted in favor of A178 without amendment.A trickier discussion followed on resolutions relating to providing sanctuary to immigrants. Resolution C009, “Becoming a Sanctuary Church,” was amended to incorporate elements of the related Resolution C018. Concern was raised about legal issues congregations might face under the banner of “sanctuary.”Bishop Suffragan Anne Hodges-Copple of the Diocese of North Carolina, chair of the bishops’ committee, reassured the committee that the goal of the resolution is to foster within the church a greater spirit of welcome to immigrants.“In some parts, ‘sanctuary’ gets equated with harboring,” Hodges-Copple said, and some churches will choose to provide or will continue to provide a physical sanctuary for immigrants facing deportation. But she also hoped the church will see the broader sense of sanctuary and reach out to immigrants in ways that are appropriate for each congregation.That resolution and the third immigration resolution to clear the committee were added to the legislative calendar, meaning the two houses won’t be able to approve them quickly as part of the daily lists of consent resolutions.“Sorry, Gay,” Jane Freeman, a deputy from Ohio, said in a reference to Jennings, who was not present at the committee meeting but had told the House of Deputies a day earlier “the consent calendar is our friend.”The Rev. Mark Stevenson, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries, introduces a video about the agency’s refugee resettlement work before the Social Justice and U.S. Policy Committee takes up immigration resolutions on July 9 at the JW Marriott hotel in Austin, Texas. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe resolution Freeman was discussing, C033 on respecting the dignity of immigrants, now incorporates elements of C001, immigration enforcement; C002, the DREAM Act; D001, residency status of Haitians; and D015, keeping families together.The committee also bulked up the amended resolution with additional references to past actions taken by General Convention.“What we wanted to be sure was there was a historical precedent going back to 2009 dealing with these immigration issues,” Freeman said. A 2009 resolution, for example, called for comprehensive immigration reform, a goal that Congress appears no closer to achieving nine years later.The resolutions are expected to go to the House of Bishops first. The timing is not yet clear.Resolution C033, in particular, generated quite a bit of testimony at an open hearing on immigration July 7, possibly because it covers such a broad swath of the issue while also identifying specific avenues for advocacy.“I call upon my church, our church, to do what is right for immigrants,” the Rev. Roberto Maldonado, a priest and deputy from the Diocese of Oregon, testified at the hearing. Maldonado was one of about 25 people to speak about the various immigration resolutions.“We are grateful for the General Convention’s longstanding commitment to respecting the dignity and humanity of all people, including immigrants and refugees,” Rebecca Linder Blachly, director of the Office of Government Relations, said in a email statement to ENS. “The resolutions under consideration reflect the importance and prominence of issues relating to migration. OGR has continued to prioritize this issue – from holding the Vigil for Family Unity to visiting a detention center last July to working closely with Episcopal Migration Ministries on refugee resettlement.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

It is clear that the pulpit is no place to preach politics; however, the overall church can have policies, and should, that reflect the Jesus movement and the way of Christ in treating our fellow beings and the earth itself. Otherwise, what is the point? Ignoring the world is not what we are here for, and abject denial of a problem is certainly not helpful. The cupidinous trickery of trying to deflect away from the issues at hand by making specious comparisons and straw man arguments are not helpful, either. Stick to the subject, face reality, and understand that our role in the world is to be the ambassadors of Christ, no matter how that affects us and our “reputations”. In the liturgy just last week, Jesus said if people chose not to listen, to take your peace and shake the dust off your feet. I am personally tired of arguing about the importance of love and compassion, our commission, and attempting to explain to people how to care. If you do not, that is on you. I choose to care. Rector Hopkinsville, KY Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Collierville, TN July 10, 2018 at 4:14 pm I don’t think opposing the separation of children from their parents is something that is partisan. If there are Episcopalians who think that is good policy, I find that to be disappointing. Rector Martinsville, VA July 10, 2018 at 5:25 am I think the EC has largely become a church for geriatric Democrats. While I will probably die an Episcopalian because that is the way I was raised, I am beginning to think that the youth and vitalism of Anglicanism in the United States may have already shifted to ACNA. Stale progressive politics isn’t a nutritious diet for growing spiritually. And I don’t mean to imply that I am a Republican. I think they should leave their politics at home also. Matt Ouellette says: Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Job Listing July 10, 2018 at 4:17 pm I often hear conservatives say that “if you think having more migrants in this country is a good idea, why don’t you house them yourself?” Well, that’s exactly what the church is doing by supporting sanctuary cities. Now you’re saying it’s a bad idea because it promotes law-breaking. What, exactly, should we be doing as a church? Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest July 10, 2018 at 10:33 am I was confirmed 58 years ago.

Rector Tampa, FL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem July 10, 2018 at 7:39 am Well said brothers.The Episcopal church has really become a political arena, and no matter how the presiding bishop preaches his :love,love,love:,the church should not support breaking the civil laws to create sanctuary cities etc. Give the elected officials support in resolving our immigration problems,allowing genuine asylum seekers voice.USA is not the police for the world.As for me, the church has” strayed from its ways like lost sheep “,It has become far too political for me, and I worship elsewhere, and seek to keep the Nicene creed and the Apostles creed forefront. July 10, 2018 at 10:22 am First, perhaps not in the sanctuary but perhaps in the choir?

The term “child torture” is highly emotive but lacking in rational content until made more specific in definition. Thus, not knowing what you are claiming, I can neither agree nor disagree. I can only ask that you be far more specific. July 10, 2018 at 11:05 am Is caring for children at the border torture by giving them food, clean beds etc? Mr Ward, please be more specific. I think parents who send their children to another country alone is more like torture, they expose them yo unknown suffering. The flag in church is there to honor those who gave their lives in service to this country.

This is staggering considering that 80% of new visitors to websites go directly from one of the main search engines.

It was therefore not surprising that 64% of those surveyed were unhappy with the results of their website and over 82% of receptionists took more than a minute to provide their website address, with 34% taking 2 minutes or more to provide the information!” Companies in the south of England are not investing in promoting their Web sites online.

AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Help by sharing this information RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Organisation Reporters Without Borders condemns the Afghan government’s latest interference in the media. The cabinet decided on 27 July to close down the privately-owned TV station Emroz for allegedly endangering national unity and to ban two programmes on two other TV stations on the ground that they were contrary to Islamic values.“The government must not under any circumstances violate the media law, which gives the media commission sole decision-making authority when a media commits an offence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the government to rescind these decisions and never interfere in the content of Afghan TV stations again.”When it met on 27 July, the cabinet ordered the ministry of culture and information and the attorney general to shut down Emroz, a station launched in August 2007 that is known for taking anti-Iranian and anti-Shiite positions.Defending the decision, deputy culture and information minister Jalal Norani said it was important to “insist on national values and interests.”Emroz owner Najibolah Kabuli described the station’s closure as an “act of revenge by pro-Iranian pressure groups.” He added: “Since 2009, our station has been organising a series of demonstrations in various cities against Iran’s anti-Afghan policies.”“Media wars” are nothing new in Afghanistan. Media backed by different political parties and foreign countries have been waging a news and information war since 1998. Emroz and Shemshad on the one hand, and Tamadon, a station that supports Afghanistan’s Shiite leaders, on the other, have been bitter rivals. The rivalry between the media reflects a battle for influence among the countries that support them, above all Iran and Pakistan.Speaking on condition of anonymity in March 2009, a TV journalist told Reporters Without Borders: “In what country can a powerful neighbour fund three TV stations? Iran’s influence has grown, but so has the influence of Pakistan and the United States.”The cabinet also decided at its 27 July meeting to ban “Del and Nadel,” a programme broadcast by the privately-owned TV station Yak, and “Bazi Bakhat,” a programme broadcast by the privately-owned Tolo TV. Both programmes were accused of being “anti-Islamic.”The Union of Afghan Journalists and NAI, a press freedom organisation, said in a joint statement said the cabinet’s decisions “could be dangerous for freedom of expression.” While not defending the programmes and editorial policies of the three stations, they said it was the job of the media commission and it alone to determine whether a media was guilty of an offence and to take decisions affecting the media.The charge of being anti-Islamic is one of the most common grounds for censoring media in Afghanistan. Although it lacks any precise definition, it is often used by the authorities to ban TV programmes.For more information about the press freedom situation in Afghanistan, read the report that Reporters Without Borders released in March 2009: “Report of fact-finding mission: Press freedom in free-fall in run-up to presidential election” (http://en.rsf.org/afghanistan-report-of-fact-finding-mission-16-03-2009,…) News News July 30, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government violates media law by closing TV station Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says to go further News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Afghanistan June 2, 2021 Find out more News March 11, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts RSF_en May 3, 2021 Find out more
Organisation News Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today condemned the continuing use of violence against the independent press after 60,000 copies of The Zimbabwean On Sunday newspaper were intercepted and torched on the evening of 24 May and a freelance reporter was attacked and beaten in the eastern city of Mutare.“These attacks must not remain unpunished,” the press freedom organisation said. “Since the 29 March general elections, the authorities have been guilty of at least 12 violations of their national and international undertakings in the form of physical attacks and arbitrary arrests of journalists. These attacks on the independent press are now being carried out by unidentified men armed with AK-47 rifles and using 4WD vehicles.”A truck containing 60,000 copies of The Zimbabwean On Sunday, which is edited by Zimbabwean exiles based in Britain and printed in South Africa, was intercepted on the main road linking South Africa and Zimbabwe about 150 km south of Masvingo by eight gunmen with AK-47 type rifles. The newspaper’s editor, Wilf Mbanga, said he assumed the gunmen were Zimbabwean intelligence agents.They forced driver Christmas Ramabulana and distribution assistant Tapfumaneyi Kancheta to drive the truck to a deserted spot, where they set it on fire. They also seized and burned Kancheta’s passport, and beat him and Ramabulana before departing, leaving the two of them with their torched truck.Freelance journalist Sydney Saize was attacked outside Mutare, near the border with Mozambique, on the evening of 18 May. He was returning home when four men invited him to get into their 4WD vehicle with them. After driving a short distance, they stopped, accused him of being a traitor and gave him a beating. They finally left him at the side of the road.
