A few weeks ago, The Dissenter reported on an Episcopal priestess who preached a sermon “lamenting” the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Winnie Varghese, one of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta’s “pastors,” denounced in one breath the decision to overturn Roe which guaranteed the right to kill an unborn human being while in the other breath, bloviating over the dignity and worth of human beings.

“But as a person in a woman’s body, I understood the access to medical care for my whole body and the wide-ranging circumstances that might include terminating a pregnancy that might not confront me, but have already confronted my friends…as a priest, I have sat with so many, praying with and weighing their choices because of a pregnancy…”

“…but he who fails to find me injures himself; all who hate me love death.” —Proverbs 8:36

That’s the Episcopal “Church” in a nutshell.

Now, in its latest iteration of death-loving anti-Christian production, the Episcopal Church has officially put out a resolution condemning crisis pregnancy centers. Crisis pregnancy centers are typically anti-abortion and seek to offer mothers help in exchange for keeping their children. While these centers sometimes have the wrong focus, often focusing on the pragmatic rather than the root cause of abortion, it is an option—or “choice,” for those who claim to be pro-choice—for mothers who actually need the help. Many of these centers do excellent work.

Yet, the Episcopal Church condemns them. In a recent resolution, D078, passed on July 8, the Episcopal Church stated that it denounces the work of these centers and apologizes for ever supporting them. The text of the resolution reads:

Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring,

That the 80th General Convention denounces the work of Crisis Pregnancy Centers, also known as Pregnancy Resource Centers; and be it further  

Resolved, that the 80th General Convention apologizes for the Church’s previous support of Crisis Pregnancy Centers as detailed in Resolution 1994-D105.

So, why would a church denounce the work of crisis pregnancy centers? It is undeniable that this apostate denomination is not just dying, but is dead and has been dead for a long time. The Episcopal Church should not be considered a church at all. Episcopalians hold to the belief that God is tolerant and even celebratory of such aberrant things as sodomy and abortion and holds no qualms about living in such a way that defaces the character of God. To be clear: God hates the Episcopal Church.

Religious data expert, Ryan Burge, recently published an article titled The Death of the Episcopal Church is Near where he lays out the data showing the severe declining trend in active membership over the last decade. In short, it doesn’t look good.

Burge reports:

In 2009, 725,000 people attended an Episcopal church on an average weekend. According to their own data, the Episcopal Church has about 1.8 million baptized members. Thus, about 40% of members actually attend on a regular basis. That’s been declining steadily over the last decade. A typical year sees attendance dip by 25,000-35,000 people. That represents a 2-3% year-over-year decline. By 2019, the weekly attendance was 547,000. In percentage terms, the Episcopalians have seen their attendance drop by a quarter in just the last decade. 

That information alone is enough to bring tears of joy to the believer–at least, if they don’t exist, they can’t blaspheme God, right? Well, if they don’t exist as a counterfeit church, at least they can’t blaspheme God under the guise of Christianity.
