TEC - ssssshhhhhh, don’t mention THAT name….. UPDATED
Another classic from TEC. Check this out. This is the current homepage on their website at the time of writing…
Except of course, something’s missing from the original in the BCP. Can you guess?
20. For Congress or a State Legislature
O God, the fountain of wisdom, whose will is good and gracious, and whose law is truth: We beseech thee so to guide and bless our Senators and Representatives in Congress assembled (or in the Legislature of this State, or Common-wealth), that they may enact such laws as shall please thee, to the glory of thy Name and the welfare of this people; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
It almost as though Jesus has, for TEC, become “you know who” or “he who must not be named”. It gets to a sorry state when a supposedly Christian church is now excising the name of Jesus whenever and wherever they can out of, one presumes, embarrassment.
Well, lo and behold! I’ve just been to the TEc website and what do I find…
What’s worse? Being embarrassed about Jesus, or being embarrassed about being embarrassed about Jesus? It’s obvious that 815 read this site (hello Katherine!) - perhaps they could tell us who made the decision to cut the name of Jesus and why it was necessary to reinstate it now?
Well, it seems we’ve struck a nerve on this one. I just got a tweet from the official TEc twitter account…
@davidould Even in a digital world, typos and goofs happen. Our home page content has been updated. No excuse for that kind of error.
I’m not overly persuaded…
