Ragsdale's Abortion Views "Most Shocking"

Katharine Ragsdale, newly appointed President of Episcopal Divinity School, said in a sermon recently:

"Let me hear you say it:
Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.
Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done.
Abortion is a blessing and our work is not done."

The Bishop of Chester (Church of England) responded with this to the Church of England Newspaper on April 9, 2009:

Sir,

Of all the reports emanating from The Episcopal Church in recent years, I consider that concerning the appointment of Katharine Ragsdale as Dean of Episcopal Divinity School in Massachusetts (April 3) to be the most shocking. That a promoter of abortion on demand, who describes abortionists as engaged in 'holy work', might be given such a senior position must call in question any possibility of normal relations with the province concerned.

If any right-thinking Christian has doubted the potential need for a new province in North America, they should ponder your astonishing report.

The Rt Rev Peter Forster, Bishop of Chester

The Catholic News Online has picked up the Ragsdale story from VirtueOnline. The comments there are golden!
