    Queen"s chaplain resigns after Quran being read in church

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017...yer-cathedral/
    Less than a week after one of the Queen’s Chaplains spoke out against an Islamic Prayer denying the divinity of Jesus Christ being read out in a Scottish Cathedral, the senior churchman has tendered his resignation from that office.
    Former Chaplain to Her Majesty the Reverend Gavin Ashenden announced his resignation on his personal blog on Saturday night, anticipating that a BBC Radio 4 segment on him and the controversy surrounding the Quranic readings in a Scottish Cathedral to be broadcast on Sunday morning would reveal his resignation despite his requests to the contrary. Remarking that the decision to step down was “the most honourable course of action” and had come after years of “attempts to silence or defenestrate me”, Rev. Ashenden said he had spoken out in the past on controversial matters as a “matter of integrity and responsibility”.

    Good for him. The Church of England has been a serious mess for years. May the Lord bless him for his work.

    It's not often one gets to use the word 'defenestrate' in a sentence!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Ashenden mentions how wrong but how impressive the headlines are. He is not the Queen's only chaplain. He was one of 36
