Some church leaders join battle against Uganda’s gay bill

first_img By Fredrick NzwiliPosted Feb 10, 2012 Rector Pittsburgh, PA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Collierville, TN Rector Albany, NY Africa, Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH [Ecumenical News International] Following the re-introduction in Uganda of a bill that would harshly punish homosexuality, gay rights activists, including some church leaders, are uniting through Twitter and Facebook to oppose it.The Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009 was revived on Jan. 7 in parliament by David Bahati, the legislator who is its architect, prompting fresh protests worldwide, similar to those that led to its shelving in 2011.“I am very disappointed with the return of the bill,” former Anglican Bishop Christopher Ssenyonjo of West Buganda told ENInews in a telephone interview on Feb. 8 from Kampala, Uganda’s capital.A significant change is the removal of the provision for the death penalty, but the new bill still increases to life imprisonment the punishment for homosexual activity, which is illegal in Uganda, with many faith leaders rejecting it as sinful and contrary to Scripture.But Ssenyonjo criticized politicians for seeking popularity through the bill. He cautioned that it will not work in the long run. “As you can see, a lot needs to be done and we have to use all methods such as Twitter and Facebook,” said the bishop who ministers to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people (LGBTs).Action against the bill has been mounting on social networks including Twitter and Facebook. A petition seeking 5,000 signatures to urge President Yoweri Museveni and the Ugandan Parliament to reject the law is currently being signed by linking through the networks. It warns Uganda of isolation by the west over the bill.In Kenya, Anglican priest Michael Kimindu, the African president of the Other Sheep, a gay rights group, said he will post tweets against it.“It is un-African to suggest killing, whether it is because of sexual orientation or any other reason. We think this bill is very unfair. We are lobbying for its removal,” said Kimindu.According to Jane Wochaya, communications official at Gay Trust Kenya, the social networks were being used to unite calls for protection of homosexual rights in Uganda.“The bill goes against the U.N. declaration of human rights and against fundamental basic human rights,” she said.LBGTs will not start new churches or mosques, according to her, but hoped for acceptance in the existing ones since the faiths stress love, acceptance and inclusion.

So powerful is this trend that we face Christ and seek to put a price on grace. He responds with infinite love and mercy – and with a command that seems irrational when we first hear it. He says to us, who think ourselves rich, that we are to receive freely from him.The reason for his offer is that, in God’s economy, we are the poorest of the poor; poorer than ever because we think ourselves rich. Our money and wealth is like the toy money in a children’s game: it may buy goods in our human economies that seem so powerful, but in the economy of God it is worthless. We are only truly rich when we accept mercy from God, through Christ our Saviour.Our imaginary economy, which we treat as real, not only deceives us – as the prophet says – into spending our worthless money on things that do not satisfy; but it drains our energies in the pursuit of illusions.Look around us at Europe today and hear the truth of the words that God speaks to us. The greatest wealth in European history has ended in the tragedies of debt and slavery. Our economies that can spend so much are merely sandy foundations. Despite it all, we find dissatisfaction and despair: in the breakdown of families; in hunger and inequality; in turning to extremists. Riddled with fear, resentment and anger, we seek ever more desperately, fearing the stranger, not knowing where to find courage.Yet God calls to us in mercy, to each of us and all of us together. He offers wealth that is real and will bring satisfaction. He calls for us to listen, to eat, to come, to trust.We are to listen. How do we hear God? So often in the mouths of the most helpless and the poorest. Jean Vanier of L’Arche tells us that those with great disabilities speak powerfully of hope, of purpose and of love to those who think they are strong.He calls us to eat. We eat above all in the Eucharist, in sharing the body and blood of Christ, so that we can feast. To eat with God is to have more than enough, so that we become people of generosity in a hungry world – of abundance that overflows.He calls us to come. One of our great poets in England, George Herbert – a clergyman – starts a poem about the mercy of Christ, “Love bade me welcome; yet my soul drew back …” We draw back because we do not believe that mercy, that love so freely given, is for us. Our sins cry out, but Christ cries louder, “Come …”And we are called to trust. To trust that God’s mercy in Christ is enough. To trust that when we listen, eat and come we will be nourished as he promises. It is a calling constantly in need of renewal.We need to be reminded daily of our poverty in spirit, to thirst for the riches of God’s mercy. We are all to drink daily of that mercy in order to overcome our sin and anger, and to bear mercy to others.Isaiah ends this passage with a great picture of all nations coming to the one – to the people, the church, the nations that have listened, eaten, come and trusted. The nations are drawn because the illusion of wealth is replaced by the reality of peace and love. Because when we receive mercy and peace we become the bearers of mercy and peace.That is where we end, as those who carry mercy from God through Christ to all humanity in actions that reveal mercy. Sant’Egidio’s work in Mozambique and around the world is a sign of what is possible when Christ’s mercy flows through us. We are to be those who enable others to be merciful to those with whom they are in conflict. We are called to be Christ’s voice to the hopeless, calling, “Come to the waters” in a world of drought and despair; giving away with lavish generosity what we have received in grace-filled mercy.In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

As Supreme Court lets DACA stand for now, Episcopal leaders…

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Immigration Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Migration Ministries, The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Collierville, TN DACA recipients and their supporters celebrate outside the U.S. Supreme Court on June 18 after the court ruled, 5-4, that President Donald Trump’s 2017 move to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was unlawful. Photo: Reuters[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal leaders on June 18 welcomed the U.S. Supreme Court’s surprise decision preserving protections for about 700,000 immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children. Even so, The Episcopal Church remains focused on advocating for legislation that will offer them permanent protection from deportation and, eventually, U.S. citizenship.The court, in a 5-4 decision, ruled that the Trump administration’s actions were “arbitrary and capricious” in attempting to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program known as DACA that was created in 2012 by the Obama administration. DACA, though not a path to citizenship, allowed recipients to work in the United States if they met certain criteria.The Episcopal Church, acting on resolutions passed by its General Convention, has long advocated for protecting those immigrants. They often are referred to as DREAMers, based on the pending DREAM Act legislation, first introduced in Congress in 2001 but never passed.“While today’s Supreme Court decision provides reprieve for DACA recipients, the DACA program remains in peril,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said in a written statement to Episcopal News Service. “The Episcopal Church calls on Congress to pass the DREAM Act to provide permanent certainty for undocumented people brought to the United States as youth.”Episcopal leaders and other supporters of DACA recipients note that they are contributing members of their communities in the United States and often have no memory of life in their native countries.“DACA recipients are a vital part of our common life, both in the church and in society as a whole,” Curry said. “They are part of God’s family. We must give them the peace of mind to know they also belong to the American family.”The Episcopal Church’s Washington-based Office of Government Relations, working with Episcopal Migration Ministries, has stepped up its advocacy on the issue this year, in anticipation of the Supreme Court’s ruling. The Office of Government Relations issued an action alert in April to its Episcopal Public Policy Network, and since January, it has met with staff members in the offices of more than a dozen U.S. senators, said Rushad Thomas, a policy adviser with the Episcopal agency.The church has urged senators to support DREAM Act legislation already passed by the House of Representatives or to consider compromise measures that would preserve protections for DACA recipients. Such efforts will continue even after the Supreme Court’s ruling, Thomas told ENS.“Our position is still and will continue to be that Congress needs to enact permanent protection for DACA recipients,” Thomas said. “This issue is a major focus for us, and we will continue to stand with DACA recipients and press for the DREAM Act that will give them permanent relief.”Popular opinion has generally sided with such efforts, which occasionally have drawn bipartisan support in Congress and sometimes even from President Donald Trump. The president otherwise has sought to reduce both illegal and legal immigration to the United States, and in September 2017, his administration ordered an end to DACA, arguing that these immigrants’ legal residency status needs to be addressed by legislation, not executive action.During oral arguments in November 2019, members of the Supreme Court’s conservative majority appeared willing to agree with the Trump administration that it was justified in ending the protections, but on June 18, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberal bloc in ruling the administration had not followed proper federal procedures for doing so. The court did not rule on the legality of the DACA program itself.“While we celebrate the news that protections for DREAMers will remain in place, The Episcopal Church continues to stand with DACA recipients in calling on Congress to enact a legislative solution that provides permanent protections for undocumented youth,” the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church, said in a written statement.“The Office of Government Relations and the Episcopal Migration Ministries Engagement Unit have put this issue at the top of the agenda in recent months. We will continue to make the case to lawmakers that DACA recipients must be protected.”The DACA ruling comes just three days after the Supreme Court ruled that employers could not discriminate against workers based on sexual orientation or gender identity, another decision that The Episcopal Church celebrated after years of engagement on the issue.Washington Bishop Mariann Budde and Washington National Cathedral Dean Randy Hollerith issued a joint statement on June 18 acknowledging both decisions. “We give thanks to God for these rulings and for all those who have dedicated their lives to ensuring the legal rights and status of those previously marginalized in this country,” Budde and Hollerith said. “We are a better nation when we recognize the full humanity and the gifts of all our people.”The church has been vocal in supporting humane immigration policies for decades. In 2018, the 79th General Convention, meeting in Austin, Texas, passed several immigration-related resolutions, including one that singled out the plight of DACA recipients.This year, in addition to direct contacts with lawmakers’ offices, the Office of Government Relations and Episcopal Migration Ministries have issued calls to Episcopalians to engage in advocacy on the issue. The two church agencies partnered to held webinars, in April and this month, to provide information and personal perspectives, including from Episcopalians who are DACA recipients.The Rev. Nancy Frausto, a DACA recipient who serves as associate rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, California, participated in both webinars. When reached by phone after the Supreme Court’s ruling, her joy was clear.The Rev. Nancy Frausto, associate rector at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Long Beach, California, participates in a webinar about the immigration program known as DACA hosted April 16 by Episcopal Migration Ministries and the Office of Government Relations.“I think most of us were bracing ourselves to hear that DACA was going to be taken away, and this is very unexpected. It’s huge,” she told ENS. “And we also understand that it’s not the end of it.”Frausto, 35, was just 7 years old when her parents took the family across the border into the United States from their native Mexico seeking greater opportunities. She said she didn’t realize she was an undocumented immigrant until she began applying for financial aid for college and realized she was missing a Social Security number.At that time, her family was attending worship services at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The congregation raised money to help Frausto and other undocumented immigrants attend college, she said.“In the Episcopal Church, I found so much support,” Frausto said. “It was the church that got me through the darkest moments when I thought I had no future here.”Now she is joining other Episcopalians in fighting for comprehensive immigration reform. “While today’s win with DACA is huge, we’re still not protected,” she said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

England Saxons beat Scotland A to win the Churchill Cup

first_imgTuesday Jun 24, 2008 England Saxons beat Scotland A to win the Churchill Cup After a very forgettable week for English rugby union, the country’s second-string team at least provided a positive ending by beating Scotland A in Chicago to claim a second consecutive Churchill Cup title, their fourth in six years.While attention had been squarely focused across the Pacific just hours earlier as the senior squad completed a tour of New Zealand that was disastrous in all respects, Steve Bates’ Saxons rounded off their campaign in emphatic style with 20 unanswered points in the latter stages of the second half on Saturday night.Tries for Nick Abendanon, Jordan Crane and Ugo Monye saw England pull clear of a Scotland second-string that had threatened an upset when they led midway through the second half. Ryan Lamb, the Gloucester fly-half, kicked 16 points for the Saxons, shading his personal duel with the Scots’ No10, Gordon Ross of Saracens, who slotted 14 points.“This squad has been an absolute pleasure to work with,” said Bates, the Saxons head coach. “By winning the tournament we’ve achieved what we set out to do and played some great rugby.“The Scots put in a very competitive performance and it took longer than we expected to break them down. But we stuck to our guns well and although it was a pretty even game for about an hour, we stepped it up after that.” Note: With thanks to the Guardian. :: Related Posts :: England Saxons off to a good start at the Churchill Cup Tom Croft 60m winning try – Churchill Cup 2007 Time: 06:38ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Boy thrown from Mall of America balcony is home after nearly five months in hospital

first_imgBanksPhotos/iStock(BLOOMINGTON, Minn.) — After almost five months of intensive and rehabilitative care, the 5-year-old boy who was thrown from a third floor balcony at the Mall of America in Minnesota in April is finally home.The family of the boy — identified only as Landen — shared the good news on their GoFundMe page, which has raised more than $1 million to support Landen in his recovery. “We are pleased to share that our son completed his inpatient rehabilitation and is now home. We are so thankful, and we rejoice in the Lord’s blessings to our family,” the family said in a statement posted by family friend Noah Hanneman.“We continue to ask that His healing powers guide us and our son’s care team as we enter the next phase of recovery, which includes continued outpatient rehabilitation for multiple injuries and adjusting to life back at home and school,” the statement continued.Landen was moved from the intensive care unit into an inpatient physical rehabilitation program in early August indicating that he was making progress with his recovery, according to a statement from his family on GoFundMe.The injuries Landen suffered after he fell almost 40 feet in the unprovoked attack were vast.“The injuries and severe complications have now resulted in more than 15 separate medical procedures or surgeries, including surgeries for two broken arms and a broken leg, removal of his spleen, procedures for fluid in his lungs and stomach, as well as for facial and skull fractures; and just this past weekend, he had a stent placed in a vein that runs through his liver because of the serious complications he continues to endure,” Hanneman said on June 25.The man responsible, Emmanuel Aranda, pleaded guilty to premeditated first-degree murder in May and agreed to a plea deal of 19 years in prison, according to ABC affiliate KSTP-TV. Aranda said that he was “looking for someone to kill, but it did not ‘work out,’” according to a probably cause document.In spite of what Landen has gone through so far, Hanneman was grateful for all of the support the boy has received in the latest update on GoFundMe.“Thank you to all of you who prayed for us and loved us during the past 4 1/2 months. You helped to give us hope and show us the Glory of God’s great love here on earth even during the darkest of days,” he said. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
