The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Resolution R-6: Central Florida Diocese of the Episcopal Church

Resolution R-6: Response to the Election in Los Angeles

The following resolution was presented at 2:15 pm during the convention for the Central Florida Diocese of TEC narrowly passed by a vote of 174 to 152. This close vote shows that even in an allegedly conservative and orthodox diocese there is evidently many theological revisionists and progressivists who deny the authority of Holy Scripture. Scripture clearly condemns homosexual behavior (Romans 1:18-32). Yet 152 voted to uphold the election and consecration of Mary Glaspool as a suffragan bishop in Los Angeles, which is contrary to Scripture because Glaspool is openly lesbian and living in sexual immorality. I would go further than that and say that she is disqualified on the further basis that women are not qualified to serve as pastors, deacons or bishops in light of the Apostle Paul's inspired command for women to not hold positions of authority over men or to teach men (1Timothy 2:12).

The resolution reads as follows:

Title of Resolution: Response to the Election in Los Angeles
Presenter: The Reverend Loren Fox
Date: December 15, 2009

RESOLVED: That this 41st Annual Convention of the Diocese of Central Florida shall understand that, if the consecration of Mary Glaspool as Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles proceeds in light of Lambeth 1:10, in light off the Windsor Report, in light of the Scriptures, and in light of the Anglican Covenant, those bishops who participate in that consecration will have walked apart from those of us who remain in The Episcopal Church and remain committed to the Faith proclaimed in the Scriptures, received by the one holy catholic, and apostolic Church, and affirmed by the Anglican Communion of which we remain a part.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

I heard that Bishop John Howe actually opposed this resolution. Shame on him. We all know that the resolution will be ignored. However, for the bishop to sit back and say nothing while The Episcopal Church continues on its downward spiral speaks volumes about Howe's lack of character and resolve.
