Archbishop Tutu endorses assisted suicide

From a euthanasia group via PR Newswire:

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Oct. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, 85, has recorded a video saying he wants the option of assisted dying “when the time comes … to pass” and endorsing bills worldwide to authorize this end-of-life option…

Two years ago, the legendary Christian human rights leader authored an op-ed in The Guardian announcing the reversal of his lifelong opposition to assisted dying as an option for terminally ill adults to stop unbearable end-of-life suffering. But he was more ambiguous about whether he personally wanted the option: “I would say I wouldn’t mind,” wrote the Nobel Peace Prize laureate at the time.


Reality check: So someone should be appointed to be the last one out who turns off the lights in the Anglican tradition? Soon, one hopes, before it gets any worse.

P.S.: If you are a recovering Anglican Christian, consider the Ordinariate. You can remain an Anglican and reclaim your tradition while swimming the Tiber. No, really. Check it out. Your life may depend on it. We are all “the fetus” now.

    To all Anglicans out there, there’s no need to despair. The Ordinariate is a life jacket not only for Anglicans but for Roman Catholics as well who are being victimized by crypto heterodox clerics. The sacred liturgy of the Ordinariate is unparalleled in the English speaking world. Our future is in tradition. This is as true in the secular realm as it is in the sacred realm. Long live the Queen! Viva Cristo Rey!

    • I agree. I am an Ordinariate Catholic. Most members of my church were shipwrecked in the kind of mess that would see this, and much worse, happen. If you ever get a chance to attend a service at Annunciation on Spencer Street in Ottawa, you will find the Ecclesia Anglicana = the Church in English*. Some have described it to me as a profound experience.

      * REAL English, – look, you have to HEAR it.
