UK Anglican Minister urges followers to pray for Prince George to be gay

Prince George is only four years old.

A prominent Anglican cleric and gay rights campaigner has urged believers to pray for Prince George to find the love “of a fine young gentleman” when he grows up.

Mr. Holdsworth, the provost of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow believes that Prince George could advance the same-sex marriage agenda in the UK, should he grow up to be gay. Prince George is four years old and third in line to the throne.

The New York Times

While same-sex marriage is permitted by law in most of Britain, the Church of England says on its website, “it remains the case that it is not legally possible for same-sex couples to marry” in its churches.

Mr. Holdsworth, the provost of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Glasgow, belongs to the Scottish Episcopal Church, a separate province of the Anglican Communion that voted in June to let its priests solemnize same-sex marriages.

In his campaign to expand on that change, Mr. Holdsworth wrote in a blog post on Thursday that believers could “pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman.” Prince George is the elder child of Prince William and the former Catherine Middleton, now called the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily, though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen,” Mr. Holdsworth wrote. “Who knows whether that might be sooner than things might work out by other means.”

His suggestion was widely reported in the British media on Friday, though the blog on which he made it seemed inaccessible Friday morning.

Mr. Holdsworth caused a frisson among some of the faithful in January when he permitted a reading from the Quran during a service that included a rebuttal of the Christian belief that Jesus was the son of God.

His latest comments also drew the outrage of more traditional clerics. The Rev. Gavin Ashenden, a former royal chaplain, called the comments unchristian.

“To pray for Prince George to grow up in that way” is to “pray in a way that would disable and undermine his constitutional and personal role,” he told Christian Today, an online news provider, particularly when part of the expectation that the prince would inherit would be “to produce a biological heir with a woman he loves.”

“It is an unkind and destabilizing prayer,” Mr. Ashenden continued. “It is the theological equivalent of the curse of the wicked fairy in one of the fairy tales.”

There was no immediate comment from the royal family.

This is what’s know as “Christianity” in Britain.

Others call it “churchianity”.
The very reverend mr holdsworth might take note of the fact that most of the “fine young gentlemen” he refers to spend a considerable part of their time sodomizing other fine young gentlemen; to the extent that they are renowned for having had thousands of anonymous encounters by the time they reach their thirties, and hundreds of sexually-acquired infections.
Having abandoned all morality, they slide remorselessly into a pit of depravity which includes drug abuse, “partner” abuse, and child abuse; and end up dying miserable deaths in some dark lane, or more likely, public lavatory.

Just a matter of interest, doesn’t the Bible, the Book on which this perverted preacher claims to believe, unless he has the ‘poofter copy’, condemns homosexuality as an abomination, Rom.1:26-27: 2Thes.2:10-12, to be punished with stoning to death, that the sickness does not spread amongst sane people. If this child of the devil, this minister of lucifer is not immediately sacked, kicked out of his pretend religious position, then we can affirm the reference above, from XRGRSF. is correct in his description of what is called Christianity in Britain, and the entirety of the Western world. All denominations sold out… Read more »

The natural order is being overturned; vengeance is closer than when we first believed.
Fire will once more rain down from heaven upon the children of men.

What is another sign is how satan is now doing signs and wonders, with him bringing fire down from heaven, as witnessed in Amazia’s attack on her own people, in California recently, with that horrific new weapon they have, obliterating whole blocks of houses, killing however many citizens, and blaming the weather. Rev.13:13 There is still at least three and an half years, as the Word goes back to to Israel, to call out the 144,000, but the Gentile dispensation is possibly now finished, as the Gentiles denominations have rejected Light, preferring making money, religious power, to sharing God’s Truth… Read more »

If you have a link to that story, I would be interested to see it; it must have got past me.
As regards new weaponry, I don’t know if you have encountered Dr Judy Wood, and her photographic evidence suggestive of yet another sort of weapon, but if not, she is well worth checking out.
“Where Did the Towers Go?” would find it for you.

Yes, Dr. Judy Wood is quite a refreshing, edifying contributor to the fight for truth, her analysis of 9/11 etc. are spot on.
As for the fires in California recently, where whole blocks of houses were totally obliterated, with not even furniture remaining, generally, demonstrates an Amazian weapon of mass destruction, which the government unleashed upon their citizens.
If you do a search on Californian fires I am sure you will find it, and I will find the link for you too.
It is total war and the most dangerous enemy the citizens of Amazia have is their own government.

And I pray to God to send this minister to that realm He created and placed his favorite angel Lucifer to rule for some endless explanation of these words.
