Quote of the Week - Ron Paul

"All of our children were raised in the Episcopal Church. Some [places] were fairly conservative but my wife and I thought the Episcopal Church advocated a position that we didn't endorse, so we left. And our children did not stay in the Episcopal Church either."--Texas Representative Ron Paul (Oct. 2011 Christianity Today interview)

Good for you, Ron Paul!

The Episcopal Church -- that is, the Anglican Church in the United States -- has lost tens of thousands of its members during the past decade, because it has adopted several policies that contradict the teachings of Christ.

These policies include the ordination of women priests and bishops, acceptance of openly gay and lesbian priests and bishops, performing same-sex marriages, etc.

In fact, in October 2009, Pope Benedict -- realizing the great amount of dissent by a plethora of Anglican worshipers regarding these anti-Christian policies -- eased the process by which Anglicans could convert to Catholicism.

Many Anglican and Episcopal ministers have also become Catholic priests, as Pope Benedict's proclamation in 2009 allows them to be Catholic priests and remain married.
