Black Commentator Barred From Becoming a Priest Because He Doesn’t Think the Church of England Is Racist

PJM:

I write a lot about The Narrative™ here at PJ Media. The left and the media (but I repeat myself) push a particular narrative, and part of that narrative is that racism is everywhere. This is the case not just here in the U.S., but in other places as well.

You won’t believe the latest way The Narrative™ is playing out in the UK. Calvin Robinson is a black conservative political commentator. In his bio at GB News, he says, “I try to put Christian values at the forefront of everything I do, including my media work,” and he believes that God has called him into the ministry.

Robinson entered training to become a priest in the Church of England, including classes at Oxford University. But he noticed that when other trainee vicars in his class were receiving assignments at congregations throughout England, he remained in ministry limbo. A conversation with the Bishop of London revealed that Robinson’s conservatism, particularly when it comes to issues of race, was the reason.

“Sitting in an ornate study in the Old Deanery – a 17th Century mansion house opposite St Paul’s Cathedral – the Bishop of London put her hand on my arm and quietly said something that left me astounded,” Robinson writes in an op-ed at the Daily Mail. “‘Calvin, as a white woman I can tell you that the Church IS institutionally racist,’ the Rt Rev Sarah Mullally told me.” read more

    Pretty sure the Bible has something to say on that account.

  5. Yeah, that ‘church’ went apostate long ago. Female bishop.

    Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 1 Timothy 2:11-14(ESV)

  6. Heck, even belief in God and the Kingship of Christ hasn’t been required for C of E clerics for a number of years. Progressivism destroyed everything it touches.
