Lesbian Priest Calls for Abortion as Sacrament!
By David J. Stewart
"He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD." —Proverb 17:15
Meet Carter Heyward. She ought to be called "Carter Wayward," because she is way out in left field my friend. This woman is a false prophet, a lesbian, an Episcopalian so-called "priest" who performs same-sex marriages, she promotes feminism, teaches apostasy and is pro-death concerning abortion. Heyward has even publicly called for abortion as a "sacrament"...
A more recent example can be found in a newsletter published by the National Abortion Federation. It provides an account of the 1985 national convention. One of the speakers was Carter Heyward [pictured to left], an ordained Episcopal priest who has been active for many years in the feminist movement. This quote was taken from her address: "If women were in charge, abortion would be a sacrament, an occasion of deep and serious and sacred meaning."
That an ordained leader of a church that supposedly represents Jesus to the world could describe child sacrifice as a sacrament or holy rite of the church without facing excommunication is a staggering illustration of the collective deception we are facing as a nation.
SOURCE: Massacre of Innocence
Can you imagine? ... a professed Christian promoting child sacrifice? This is what happens when women enter the pulpit. It was Solomon's wives who turned his heart away from the Lord, and introduced child-sacrifice to Molech once again in Israel (1st Kings 11:4-8). Heyward is NO Christian! She is an imposter, a wolf in sheep's clothing that Jesus warned us about in Matthew 7:15, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." The Word of God condemns same-sex marriage, feminism and abortion as grim acts of rebellion against God. Woe unto the wicked.
Carter Heyward is the Howard Chandler Robbins Professor of Theology at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She earned the BA in Religion at Randolph-Macon Woman's College in 1967, and then studied at Columbia University/Union Theological Seminary, where she earned the MA in Comparative Religions (1971), the M. Div. in Religion and Psychiatry (1973), and the Ph.D. in Systematic Theology (1980). In 1974 Heyward was ordained an Episcopal priest and in 1998 she received the Distinguished Alumni/ae Award from Union Theological Seminary.
Comment: So much for theological training and experience! "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools" (Romans 1:22). Some of the most highly educated people in this world are equally as foolish and confounded.

Moments from the life of a lesbian feminist Episcopal priest
Tragically, as the church is becoming more worldly, the world is becoming more churchy. This is apostasy! Its at the point nowadays where we can't tell the difference anymore between Christians and the unsaved. Professed Christians are listening to so-called "Christian Rock" which sounds exactly like the world's sinful music. Professed Christians are claiming to be homosexuals who love God, and are even operating ministries to promote homosexuality. This is of the Devil. Satan is a beautiful liar. All across the world, professed Christians are embracing the witchcraft of Harry Potter, the Satanism of Narnia and the demonism of The Golden Compass. Woe unto the wicked!
There is no rot like feminism, that corrupts a woman's soul, and causes her to rebel against God and husband. It is not surprising that most women preachers who promote feminism are also lesbians, or support homosexuality. Take feminist theologian Carole Fontaine for example, who downplays the sin of homosexuality in the wicked city of Sodom. Just as Fontaine, Heyward has redefined the Scriptures to fit her own sinful agenda. Romans 1:25 told us that the wicked would do this, "Who changed the truth of God into a lie..." Apostates today have perverted the Words of the Living God... "...for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God" (Jeremiah 23:36). Hell will be hot for those who twist the Scriptures in any attempt to lead others into sin. This is what the prophet-for-hire, Balaam, did in the Old Testament. He led God's people into apostasy and sin. This is exactly what false prophets like carter Heyward and Carole Fontaine are doing today. Shame on them.
"For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers... Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake." —Titus 1:10,11
