I noticed you took the press release from Bishop Thomas Ely down. There was a comment from one gentleman that was related to one I made in my letter to Bishop Ely, about Jesus not wanting the gun violence in Vermont or America. I try never to speak for Jesus, though I doubt he would use half truths and down right disengenuous disguise to push any agenda. I came here to commend you on having an honest debate about the “facts” you help to perpetuate. Most anti 2nd amendment groups won’t publish the truth or anything that varies from their agenda. Are you still doing that or are you going to stay away the issue?. Please try to check out your facts prior to publishing them. Google “Everytown illegal activities in States” and you will find they have their own legal battles to fight because of these lies they keep pushing along with financial contribution. Please don’t be duped into fighting for them. Thank you for your time.

The press release from Bishop Ely is still on The Lead– all stories rotate off the front page after a few days.

I’m in favor of gun control reform and the assault weapons ban, but names like “Episcopalians Against Gun Violence” drive me up the wall – it’s not unlike anti-abortionists co-opting the term “pro-life”. There’s something of a perhaps unintentional suggestion that Episcopalians with other opinions on the subject are *in favor* of gun violence.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
