Bishop Rickel Doing His Part to Create Gospel Deserts
There is a lot of talk about food deserts. It seems to me that ECUSA is doing more than its part in creating Gospel Deserts.
The state’s four Catholic bishops have written pastoral statements and recorded videos opposing marriage equality, and Referendum 74, arguing that God is the author of marriage between a man and a woman with procreation as a central goal.
Rickel, who has served since 2007 as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, which includes all of Western Washington, presents a quite different faith perspective.
“Christianity has held, when considering relationships of all sorts — but especially in relation to two people in marriage — fidelity to be our value,” Bishop Rickel writes. “Fidelity is the value in most all our sacraments, and also in our life as Christians.”
If you are in the Diocese of Olympia could you ask the bishop a question for me? Since fidelity if the criteria on which he hangs his hat, will he be sanctioning the marriage of a sterile father and his daughter who are faithful to one another? If his answer is no, please ask him to explain why.
