A cleric who was the first transgender to be ordained in the Church of England has claimed in an interview with ITV News that God is not “God the Father,” or even a “He.”
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
God, claims Sarah Jones, is “non-binary.”
Apparently centuries of church teachings, untold years of study of the Bible, and even all those references in the Scripture themselves, are wrong?
Jones, who has opposed the millennia-old principles of the Bible for years, said, “We’re very used to talking about God as ‘He’ and obviously Jesus was a man and referred to God as ‘father,’ and I get that but when we think about anything to do with God, the limits of our human imagination and our language, we just run out of understanding, I mean, how can we possibly describe God.”
Jones continued, “And when you really think about it, does God really have a body? I don’t think so, so could God really be ‘He,’ just genuinely like a guy? I don’t think so and I think if God created everything, God’s beyond all of these boundaries so whatever God is, I really don’t think God is a standard ‘He.’ I would absolutely say that God is non-binary in the sense that God is neither male nor female and I think it’s helpful.”
Jones explained that’s “helpful for the queer community, I think whether you’re straight or gay or whatever you are, the fact that God is not equivocally male perhaps is actually quite helpful in our understanding of humanity.”
Jones is at St. John the Baptist Church in Cardiff
“When I offered myself for ordination 20 years ago, I said at my very first interview, ‘Look, there’s this medical history that you need to know about’. And I really didn’t know how they’d react. And they were fine. I mean they were a little bit sort of, ‘Oh, OK, we don’t really know what to do, but give us some time, and we’ll work it out’. And it did take them time, but they did work it out and eventually I was ordained,” Jones said.
Jones wants the church to be seen as a welcoming place for people in the LGBTQ+ community.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
