Video of today’s debate in Westminster Hall. Move forward to 16:00 hours to see it all.
The most interesting thing about the proposer was that she presented absolutely no evidence that conversion therapies did or didn’t work or that it did or didn’t cause any harm. That’s a very dangerous place to be making legislation from.
Chad of Lichfield
from the first fruits of the English nation who turned to Christ,
you called your servant Chad
to be an evangelist and bishop of his own people:
give us grace so to follow his peaceable nature,
humble spirit and prayerful life,
that we may truly commend to others
the faith which we ourselves profess;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
