A Catholic bishop has had it with this woke monstrosity coming from the left. Liberals just love to keep pushing the limits no matter who they mock and offend because they do it in the name of “inclusivity.” It’s like ANTIFA, they beat you upside the head with a metal pipe, but you can’t criticize them, because their name means “Anti-fascist.” So, they’re the “good guys” – you see how this game works, right? Well, now, right on cue, the left is mocking Christianity… just in time for Christmas, and Bishop Nichols has had enough. He slammed a church choir for altering a popular Christmas carol to include woke ideology and terminology in the song. Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, took issue with the song performed by All Saints with Holy Trinity choir in Loughborough, England.
The Daily Wire reported on the song: “God rest you queer and questioning, your anxious hearts be still,” an altered line in “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen,” said, according to Fox News.
“God rest you also, women, who by men have been erased,” another line in the song said. “Through history ignored and scorned, defiled and displaced.”
Nichols responded, “I think what Christmas does, and many other moments, it tells us the importance of ritual.”
“Ritual helps us to step outside of our own little bubble and connect with something we have received, inherited and that we hope to pass on,” he continued. “Those values are the continuation of musical repertoire, of the ability to sing together, of looking at the rituals that have been fashioned over centuries. Those are probably for me more important than particular sensitivities which come and go.”
The amended U.S. version, written by Jeffrey Wilsor and used by the progressive Hollywood United Methodist Church, retains only the first two lines of the original song, which dates back to 17th-century England.
“We are striving to be an inclusive, eco-conscious and intercultural worshipping community (IWC) engaged with issues of social, racial and climate justice,” the church’s website states.
“We don’t think we have all the answers but for those who wish to journey with us in Christian belief and action you will find a welcome here.”
All Saints with Holy Trinity Church did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
“Absolutely disgusted an act of worship to our Lord & Saviour is being used to push political ideology contrary to @ChurchofEngland teaching,” Sam Margrave, a member of the Church’s General Synod, posted on Twitter along with several other users who took issue with the song’s rewording.
The left gets a tremendous amount of joy from mocking and ridiculing our Christian traditions. Don’t be fooled – they don’t do any of it to be inclusive.
They do it because they absolutely loathe Christianity and anybody who follows it.
