The Radicalization of the Church

By Fay Voshell

For decades, radical left theology has been making gradual inroads into the nation's churches. Inserting the God factor has granted a divine imprimatur to leftist tenets, something secularist political organizations can't match. Congregants who attend Main Line liberal houses of worship (Methodists, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, Episcopalians) have been led to assume God has given the nod to policies endorsing political correctness, radical feminism, abortion, same-sex marriage, redistribution of wealth, multiculturalism and other leftist causes.

... The capitulation to multiculturalism was on full display in the 2010 opening ceremonies for the Presbyterian Church USA General Assembly. The convocation's worship service included a processional led by devotees dressed as buffalo, eagles, skunks, rabbits, and wolves performing Native American rituals perhaps best dedicated to worship of the Sky Father rather than to Jesus Christ.

According to the Aquila Report, a conservative publication devoted to what remains of orthodoxy among Presbyterian and Reformed churches, moderator Bruce Reyes-Chow preached a "lively sermon." He concluded the aging trend of the membership could be reversed if the church would forsake the old way of being Presbyterian and open itself to a new way of being Presbyterian. "We have no idea what that's going to be, in fact we're going to open ourselves up to the possibilities God may have for us."

The good reverend just might have something there. Attracting younger folks might not be too difficult if little Johnny can entertain any notion of what it means to be Presbyterian, including coming to church dressed as a giraffe; or, should current political/theological trends within the denomination continue their inroads, as a girl.

But perhaps no observer should have been surprised at grownups parading as animals in supposed honor of Native American heritage, as the PCUSA has suffered through more than one heretical kerfuffle inspired by the latest leftist fads.

In 1994, radical feminists within the PCUSA conducted ceremonies featuring the worship of Sophia, goddess of wisdom. According to the New York Times report on the meeting, the Sophia devotees prayed, "Our maker Sophia, we are women in your image; with the hot blood of our wombs we give form to new life. With nectar between our thighs we invite a lover," they continued, and "with our warm body fluids we remind the world of its pleasures and sensations."

The Times author wryly noted, "Phrases like that may be familiar to devotees of feminist religious rituals, but they are likely to stop conversation at the average church picnic."

Apparently calling on Sophia to provide male lovers was found too limiting by some. One speaker called for "lesbian, bisexual and transsexual women to join her onstage. The audience applauded as about 100 women answered." The speaker of 1994 would be pleased to know that in 2011, the denomination voted to allow openly gay and lesbian clergy.
