Saints Serguis and Bacchus Old Values, New Frontiers


"The notion of an exclusive church is utterly abhorrent to me. It denies the very character and nature of God, God who loves us so fully, God who invites us to the heavenly banquet, God whose wisdom is boundless, God who transforms his people into his likeness, . . It is a heresy in the same way as apartheid was described as heresy." -- Archbishop Walter Paul Khotso Makhulu, October 15, 2003

"In the Catholic Church, entered by baptism, living by faith in a historic Person and nourished by the Eucharist, united by Common Worship, and bound by the one universal tie of love, there are no barriers of sex or race or age or circumstance." -- John Neville Figgis, C.R. (1866-1919)

"O for a Church, a Church deeply rooted in the old earth, yet drinking in every dewdrop of the new day." -- John Malcolm Ludlow , 1850.


[CPSA]

Archbishop Desmond Tutu on the church's treatment of gays and lesbians (1996):

"We reject them, treat them as pariahs, and push them outside our church communities, and thereby we negate the consequences of their baptism and ours. We make them doubt that they are the children of God, and this must be nearly the ultimate blasphemy."

"Are we ready to offer the blessing, God's blessing? You know, I don't marry a man and a woman. In the church's understanding they marry themselves. They are the ministers, and all we do is to seek to communicate God's blessing on that union. And I would, myself, say 'Why not?' I mean, I've met very many people who are gay, and they are incredible people -- gifted, some of the most gentle, most compassionate, and we treat them like dirt. I, for myself, would say 'If that is how God wants us to treat them, then, thank you, that God I don't want.' I will not worship that God! The God that I want is one that says 'You are beautiful, and I have made you as you are, and I want you to develop to the fullest possible extent, all that you are, become all that you have it in you to become'
