The United Methodist Church ordained its first “non-binary transgender” Deacon in June.
“Barclay, a transgender person who identifies as neither male nor female and thus uses the pronoun ‘they,’ was commissioned on Sunday as the first non-binary member of the clergy in the United Methodist Church,” wrote the Aquila Report.
The deacon’s full name is Reverend M Barclay, who came out initially as a lesbian woman before deciding that she was in fact transgender. The ordaining bishop was forced to use non-binary pronouns during the ordination ceremony, as preferred by Barclay.
“Pour out your Holy Spirit upon M,” the bishop said. “Send them now to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, to announce the reign of God and to equip the church for ministry.”
The official rules of the church require that clergy members be either celibate or in heterosexual marriages, and that they only perform heterosexual marriages. Now the UMC has homosexual clergy who perform homosexual marriages, meaning that all of the church’s rules have been broken and are now rendered meaningless.
One megachurch in Texas is close to leaving the denomination over its increased liberalization and movement away from the word of God.
“Windsor Village United Methodist Church of Houston, which has approximately 18,000 members, is undergoing a process of prayer and discernment for possibly leaving the UMC,” according to the Christian Post.
The UMC is in the midst of a raging debate over homosexuality and same-sex marriage. It is considering changes to its Book of Discipline, which says homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching.” The church will hold a special “General Conference” in February to hash out the issue.
Floyd LeBlanc, chairman of the Windsor Village Staff-Parish Relations Committee said that the church is holding a series of prayer gatherings and fasting once a week as part of its decision making process.
“We have invited guest speakers to bless, prepare and sustain us during this time. Bishop Tudor Bismark (from Africa) was with us recently and we look forward to a visit from Bishop Raphael Green (from Missouri),” he reportedly said.
BLP Passage Ends.
“While M’s journey over the last few years has included gender identity, all of those who were commissioned or ordained on Sunday have been on some kind of journey that has brought them to new places of faith, life and relationships,” said Bishop Sally Dyck. “Likewise, I hope the church will find itself at a new place in the near future when it comes to full inclusion.”
All of a sudden, the United Methodist Church has stolen the talking points of a women’s and gender studies program on a liberal arts college campus.
Rapper Lil Pump Pulls a 50 Cent by Praising President Donald Trump for His Tax Policy
Will Other Rappers Follow Suit?
Soundcloud rapper Lil Pump endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election bid on October 25, 2020.
The rapper alluded to Trump’s tax policies, which stand in sharp contrast to Joe Biden’s pro-tax hike agenda.
On Instagram, the rapper posted a photo-shopped image of himself and the president, with text saying “THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020.”
Lil Pump, whose government name is Gazzy Garcia, then released a video further detailing why he endorsed Trump, alluding to Trump’s tax plans. “All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b****” Lil Pump exclaimed. “F*** I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, b***** ass n—. F**** sleepy Joe n— Trump 2020 b****.”
Additionally, famed Queens rapper 50 Cent complained about Joe Biden’s tax policies, which is indicative of a growing sect of the rap community that is not exactly pleased with the prospects of a high tax environment under Biden.
That said, its remains to be seen if this trend crystallizes into a broader anti-tax movement in the rap space. Most rappers tend to promote culturally leftist narratives and don’t give alternative views on the Right much consideration. Like many other institutions, the rap space has seen a total takeover by the Left.
Curiously, Garcia held anti-Trump views on a previous occasion. Right after the 2016 presidential election, Lil Pump tweeted: “F*** DONALD TRUMP.”
There maybe a budding revolt against political elites. Culture matters and when it becomes clear that elites cannot even control the thoughts of cultural icons, all bets are off. Obviously, rappers should not be expected to serve as the vanguard of the America First movement. But such types of dissent should be encouraged at a time when nationalists need all the support they can get.
Once cultural barriers break down, a massive realignment is bound to happen, which is why elites want most cultural representatives to stay in line and repeat their talking points like mindless drones.
