Pastor Youcef awaits execution in Iran after criminal proceedings against him for converting to Christianity including objecting to Islamic indoctrination of his children in public schools. Besides this specific issue, we get a good glimpse of Sharia-law, Allocracy, and religious freedom more widely. Pastor Youcef's resolution is expected to be debated on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives at 7 pm EST. Watch it live on C-Span.org.
Reformation and Reformed Theology
We are Protestant, Calvinistic and Reformed Prayer Book Churchmen and Churchwomen. We use and celebrate the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer in 2012. In 2012, we also remember Bishop John Jewel of Salisbury and the 450th anniversary of the publication of his influential, Protestant, Reformed and Catholic defense of Anglicanism with "An Apology of the Church of England." Confessional Churchmen keep the "lights burning in the darkness." Although in an Anglican exile, we maintain learning, faith, hope and reading. (Also, as a matter of policy, we do not post "anonymous posters" including pseudonymous names. Give your real name and location. It is called courage and ownership of comments. Many have been deleted which are otherwise good posts. Sorry, we're old Marines here and we don't hide.)
