A senior Anglican minister has urged Christians to pray for Prince George to be gay as "the fastest way" to force the Church of England to support same-sex marriage.

 The Very Rev. Kelvin Holdsworth, the provost who runs St. Mary's Cathedral in Glasgow, Scotland, said "the fastest way" to force the denomination to allow gay people to wed would be if the future monarch and supreme head of the Church of England were gay, according to The Times.

 Holdsworth serves in the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Church of England's sister institution, which since June has allowed same-sex marriage.

 The 51-year-old minister, who is gay and campaigned for gay marriage to be allowed in the Scottish Episcopal Church, asked Christians to pray for George, the elder child of Prince William and the former Catherine Middleton, now called the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, "to be blessed one day with the love of a fine young gentleman."

"A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen," Holdsworth wrote in a blog post. "Who knows whether that might be sooner than things might work out by other means?"

 Recently, George's uncle, Prince Harry, announced his engagement to Meghan Markle, a divorced American actress.

 In his latest blog post, Holdsworth writes that he wrote the post about two years ago, although it is now that media have picked it up.

"The post was entirely about the Church and its policies around LGBT inclusion," he wrote. "I could spend the next few weeks defending that post and keep reminding people what it was originally about. However, it seems to me that isn't likely to be fruitful. The ironic comment that I made quite a while ago could be seen as hurtful to members of the Royal Family, a group of people whom I actually rather admire."

 He added, "The debate about the Church and sexuality will go on. I'm not interested in continuing it through a conversation about Prince George. I would urge others, those who agree with me strongly and those who disagree with me strongly, to turn our attentions to the actual matter at hand?"

 A former chaplain to Queen Elizabeth condemned the call as "unkind" and "profoundly un-Christian."

"If you're going to pray for Prince George, pray for him to be happy ... and pray for him to discharge his duty as prince, to be married and have children," he was quoted as saying. "It is not a kind prayer. It is not a blessing, it's more like a curse from a fairytale. I would say it's profoundly un-Christian."

 The Church of England defines marriage as between a man and a woman and rejects homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture.

 In January, The Christian Post reported that Holdsworth allowed a reading from the Quran during a service that included a rebuttal of the Christian belief that Jesus is the son of God.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
