The Blessing UK — At this unique and challenging time in the United Kingdom over 65 churches and movements, representing hundreds of others, have come together online to sing a blessing over our land. Standing together as one, our desire is that this song will fill you with hope and encourage you. But the church is not simply singing a blessing, each day we're looking to practically be a blessing.

This alongside phone calls to the isolated, pharmacy delivery drops and hot meals to the NHS frontline hospital staff. Our buildings may be closed but the church is very much alive!

"How do we follow their example today?" How about we don't. I refuse to go meekly to a humiliating death. If it comes to a choice between denying my faith and death, well... God help those who force me to make such a choice. I choose the latter, gladly, and I choose their own as the blood-price for mine. In the face of such a choice, death enriches me.

...and Matty reposts the same lies after I just got through disproving them. Christ was real explicit about liars. That is anti-Christ behavior. Seriously, what you're doing is indefensible and it isn't an accident.
"It couldn't be any clearer that ultraviolet works for the devil as she defends the Kabbalah and the antichrist talmudic cult."
It couldn't be any clearer I didn't do that, you fool.
So when I cite the existence of the Kabbalah to disprove a source, you claim I'm "defending" it along with the "the antichrist talmudic cult"
So when I cite Adolph Hitler's "Mein Kampf" as an example to disprove the same source, does that mean I'm "defending" it and Nazis? Your reasoning would say yes.
Can't have it both ways, Tex. Y'all done messed up agin.. jus' like reg'lar. :P

Oh look... @mattsixteen24 wants all his pals to see the extent of his illiteracy. It does not follow that I approve of something, much less defend it, when I use it as an example to refute your source.
Adolph Hitler's writings also refutes your source, which is why I cited them as well. Using your asinine reasoning, I must supposedly approve of Hitler too. Strange how you're not calling your fellow Jew-haters to share this "conversion story", eh? ;-)
"The very group you always defend are nazis, racial supremacists racists who hate Christ."
LOL. That's your side, dummy. :D Funny you should accuse me of this when your derpy lil' buddy Josephe a' Cretin' was promoting the fascist-friendly Father Coughlin just yesterday. Coughlin was quite sympathetic to Hitler and Mussolini. Unsurprisingly he was also a hard-core Jew-hater just like yourself and your grubby little "@'s"

For what it's worth, Alex A The Catholic Church defines refusing to obey the Church as schism. See Canon Law 751. "the refusal of submission to the Supreme Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him." is how the official phrase goes. You won't find too many Catholic priests who are going to adopt that position. ;-)
