Sodom, Gomorrah, and the United States of America

In what may be  the perfect symbol of what the United States has become, a "transgender" "priest" will be preaching today at the so-called National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.   Before commenting, here's the the bare-bones story from The Associated Press:

 Rev. Dr. Cameron Partridge, transgender priest, to preach at National Cathedral



WASHINGTON (AP) - - -  An openly transgender Episcopal priest is set to preach at Washington National Cathedral.

The Rev. Dr. Cameron Partridge, the Episcopal chaplain at Boston University, will be a guest preacher on Sunday. He'll be the first openly transgender priest to preach from Canterbury Pulpit at the cathedral. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, will preside at the service. It's part of the cathedral's celebration of LGBT pride month.

The service will also include readings and prayers from members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the cathedral, says he hopes Partridge's appearance "will send a symbolic message in support of greater equality for the transgender community."

The moral degeneration of America, which is nothing new, could not be more clearly illustrated than this.  What's infinitely more important is that America's utter and unapologetic contempt for God and His standards could not find more more perfect expression.

The National Cathedral is a strange mixture of official government activity and the Episcopal Church. One would like to say that it is no more than simply another Episcopal Church building, but that would be historically inaccurate. Pierre L'Enfant's original plans for "the Federal City," in 1792, set aside a large plot of ground for "a great church for national purposes." In 1893, Congress granted a charter to the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation of the District of Columbia, and the building has been operated by no other denomination, Protestant, Catholic, or Baptist, in the nation's history.  This unequivocally Episcopal edifice was dedicated, not by an Episcopal archbishop alone, but by President Teddy Roosevelt, in 1907, when the cornerstone was laid.  The erection of the National Cathedral has been designated by Congress as "a national house of prayer." Huh?  What about the liberals' beloved "separation of church and state?" Official state funerals have been held there for three Presidents, and memorial services for five others; but why?  Unless the men were Episcopalians, wouldn't their own churches have sufficed?  Even the sainted John F. Kennedy's funeral was held at St. Matthew's Cathedral, and that other American godling, Martin Luther King Jr., was sent to his reward from his own Baptist church in Atlanta.

Today's "sermon" by Ms. Partridge is not, of course, the first time that the National Cathedral has been the site of "gay" celebrations and commemorations.  In 2005, the cathedral hosted the "consecration" of Ms. Nancy Wilson (not to be confused with the jazz singer) as Moderator of the Metropolitan Community Church, a homosexual denomination. But Cameron Partridge's ascension to the pulpit is the first time that a "transgendered" person has preached, if preaching it can be called, and the press is playing it up as a milestone comparable to Luther's posting of the 95 Theses.


Ms. Partidge (she declines to reveal her given name at birth), 41, claims that she wanted to be a priest as early as her teens.  She attended the upscale women's college Bryn Mawr, and decided to change her gender at age 28.  (Unless her chromosomes have been replaced, this has not been accomplished.)  In the "trans" community, actual surgery is not a requirement: if one claims to be a certain gender, then that is what they are.  We are blissfully ignorant as to Ms. Partridge's medical history, or her current anatomical structure, but she is married to another woman, and the couple have acquired several children.

Although Ms. Partridge will deliver the sermon, the service will be presided over by none other than Gene Robinson, the first openly homosexual Bishop in the Episcopal Church, now retired.  Robinson, who married and divorced a woman before "coming out," has since married and divorced another man.  These are the role models being held up by America as "religious leaders."  

With or without today's service, it becomes increasingly obvious with each passing day that America has rejected the God of the Bible and embraced the "culture" and folkways of Sodom and Gomorrah. This degenerate movement has reached warp speed with the administration of the current President of the United States, but of course cannot be blamed on him alone.  The American people, only 2 or 3% of whom are themselves "gay," elected and re-elected him knowing where he stood.  They may privately suffer from "homophobia," more accurately termed "homonausea," but, having abandoned God and the Bible, they simply don't care any more.

America is gone, and despite the cries of many "Tea Partiers" and evangelicals, she is not excluded from God's pronouncement: All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity (Isaiah 40:17).  

It remains for believers of the Bible to take this kind of story with a grain of salt, and look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh (Luke 21:28).

  1. How very wrong. They seem to be flaunting themselves more and more, and I'm getting tired of their "Pride." They even corrupt the use of the rainbow from God's use of it in Genesis.

    As it was in the days of Noah...

    This story is right up there with TD bank's contest to win a VIP trip for two to Madrid for WorldPride 2017 and PFLAG's "The Me Inside" commercials.

  4. Liberalism, the socially acceptable sin, has tentacles in every corner the world now. This same article in any secular media, wouldn't even get a second glance.
