From my inbox in time of the coming Easter:
To Members, Friends and Associates of St Michael’s,
Very recently six Catholic Bishops have made a public statement and plea, that gay marriages be outlawed on the basis it would undermine family life or damage society.
Many at St Michael’s express a more accepting stance on the issue of Gay Marriages and do not agree with this recent statement. If you agree with Dr Macnab and others at St Michaels, would you please express your opinion and make it public. Pass this link onto others or ‘Like’ this in your facebook. At no other time in history has the actions of one individual had such significant power. Please make your voice heard.
St Michael’s Uniting Church
Francis Macnab, the reverend minister of one of the largest non-denominational congregations in the heart of Melbourne, is responding to one of the major issues of our times– gay rights or equal gender marriages.
Unorthodox and heretic, he has long debunked the divinity of Christ as well as the authority and authenticity of the Holy Scriptures.
In 2010, Andrew Bolt noted Macnab as a self-proclaimed saint aligning himself with Florence Nightingale and Martin Luther King Jr.
Even my own children couldn’t help but laugh at the effrontery:
Dissident Uniting Church minister Francis MacNab has posted a giant billboard over the Monash Freeway with pictures of Florence Nightingale, Martin Luther King and himself as model leaders.
Dr MacNab, minister of St Michael’s in Collins Street, launched his ‘’new faith’’ in late 2008 with another controversial freeway billboard: ‘’The Ten Commandments, the most negative document ever written.’’ He rejects the idea of a divine Christ and a personal God….
’Every morning I drive past and think ‘what an impertinence’,’’ said commuter Geoff Slattery, a Catholic.
