Anglican justice for the hungry but not the unborn

Filed under: Anglican Church of Canada — David Jenkins @ 10:09 pm

The Anglican Journal points out that:

Failure by governments and international institutions to ensure people have access to food means that for the first time more than 1 billion people are undernourished, according to  a coalition of religious, human rights and development groups.

Much of the Anglican Church of Canada’s effort to feed the hungry is devoted to parading a few bedraggled zealots at Queen’s Park and spending money on full page newspaper ads imploring the government or somebody – anybody – to do something about poverty; something that doesn’t affect the $100K per year earned by the average bishop.

Co-incidentally, Lifesite News reports that 1 billion abortions have been performed worldwide.  I am still waiting for a definitive and clear condemnation of this from the Anglican establishment; I fear it will be a long wait.

  1. The church should both be feeding the hungry and defending the unborn. Imagine how many soupkitchen meals the money spent on those ads could have bought.
