Traditional marriage

September 17, 2012 

In its ads in the Herald, the local congregation of the Anglican Church in North America, which split from the Episcopalians in 2008, claims that it represents the "historic, traditional Anglican Church." The ads affirm a belief in "faithful, monogamous marriage between one man and one woman."

I imagine that the church's founder, King Henry VIII, is turning over in his grave as a result of the 21st-century "assault" on traditional marriage -- along with his wife, Catherine of Aragon; his wife, Anne Boleyn, his wife, Jane Seymour; his wife, Anne of Cleves; his wife, Kathryn Howard and his wife, Katherine Parr.

A couple of them lost their heads over Henry's devotion to "faithful, monogamous marriage."
