June 20, 2016 at 10:50 pm Maybe the reason Rev O’Connor finds an “us against them” environment in these two issues is because many progressives in TEC have a very bad habit of looking down on those who happen to disagree with their interpretation of not just scripture but Christianity in general. I find it incredibly ironic that Rev Hrostowski accuses those on the other side of these issues of saying their view of Christianity is the only legitimate view when she and her allies are doing exactly the same thing! Indeed, as a conservative Episcopalian, reading this article gave me the same impression I have had of TEC for decades, and that is many of the members consider their interpretation of Christianity to be the true interpretation and therefore any other versions (fundamentalist, conservative) are quite simply, a sham. There are many who consider these two laws to be the exact antithesis of true Christianity, but there are also many who don’t and they are not any less of a Christian because they hold that view. Perhaps it is time that Episcopalians show a little more humility and realize that they do not have a monopoly on love, compassion, and caring for one another. Maybe then there will be a little less of this “us against them” that Rev O’Connor laments about. Sitting down and actually talking to other Christians whose views you do not share would be a nice start.

Don and JoAnn Mississippi: Episcopal priest sues to repeal anti-gay measure New state laws allow ‘guns in churches,’ anti-gay discrimination Press Release Service Rector Belleville, IL Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Albany, NY The Rev. Susan Hrostowski (left) and Kathryn Garner, who are suing to repeal the “religious freedom” law.[Episcopal News Service] For the Rev. Susan Hrostowski, suing June 13 for LGBT rights in Mississippi felt like déjà vu all over again.In April, the Episcopal priest and her wife Kathryn “Kathy” Garner were among four lesbian couples that successfully challenged a state ban on gay adoption. In 2014, they also challenged the state’s ban on gay marriage.Now, she has joined a federal lawsuit seeking to overturn another controversial anti-gay measure, known as the Religious Accommodations Act. It allows business owners, based upon their religious beliefs, to refuse service to LGBT persons.Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, who signed the measure into law April 5 saying it was intended to prevent religious discrimination, is named in the lawsuit, along with other state officials. The law is set to go into effect July 1.It is among a recent spate of laws involving religious beliefs but considered by some as contrary to Christian values. Another is a controversial “guns in churches” law that allows congregations to train and provide armed security teams during worship. That law took effect April 15 when Bryant signed it.Controversial law said ‘antithetical’ to teachings of JesusHrostowski said her family’s sincerely held religious beliefs have been harmed in significant ways by the measure, also known as HB 1523.“As a married lesbian, and a mother to a son with two moms, HB 1523 also causes significant burdens on my family life,” according to Hrostowski. “The state has gone out of its way to demean our family and deny us the dignity enjoyed by other families in our state.”“Kathy and I now constantly live in fear that a restaurant could refuse to seat our family if they viewed our dinner date as a celebration of our marriage,” she said in filing the lawsuit with the Campaign for Southern Equality and others. “We no longer feel safe to travel, because a hotel could refuse to let us stay in a room together.”They have asked the federal court to stop the law from taking effect.“The state is giving priority to one particular religious viewpoint over others,” Hrostowski told the Episcopal News Service (ENS). “In writing and passing this legislation they, (the legislature and the governor), have targeted a very specific group of people. That’s unconstitutional.“They have passed laws that allow discrimination based on a very specific type of religious perspective that is antithetical to my own and many other people’s. As an Episcopalian, we follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ, chiefly to love one another as he loved us. That’s the perspective I’m coming from.”Among other things, the law states that “marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman” and that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a union. And that “male (man) or female (woman) refer to an individual’s immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth.”Based on those beliefs, according to the law, social workers, public employees, and a wide range of businesses can refuse service to the LGBT community.Mississippi Bishop Brian Seage said the law “codifies discrimination” by allowing businesses to treat one segment of the population differently.“For example, if an LGBT couple walks into an office to get a marriage license, they don’t have to offer them one, but they do have to provide someone else who can,” Seage said. “To me, and to many others, that is flat-out discrimination, if an LGBT couple has to wait even 10 seconds longer than someone else.”Seage, in a June 3 letter to diocesan clergy and congregations, offered a new policy for performing LGBT marriages.“We had a system where a parish could go through a process of discernment and if the vestry voted in the affirmative, they could then petition the bishop to give them permission to offer blessings, and then marriages after the (June 26, 2015) Supreme Court ruling,” legalizing gay marriage.The policy leaves the decision to perform gay weddings to the discretion of clergy “with the understanding that, just like in anything we do as clergy, we need to be in discussion with our parishes and our leadership,” Seage said.It removes a previous requirement that congregations and clergy first enter a process of discernment and study, “culminating with formal vestry action and then submission to me of a petition requesting approval to perform same-sex weddings,” he said.Seage and others had called for Bryant to veto HB 1523. In a PBS interview Seage called the “religious freedom” law “unnecessary and … an answer to something that’s not a problem” because clergy have always been able to decline to perform any wedding.No ‘pistol-packing’ in Episcopal churchesSeage, and the Rev. Ann Whitaker, associate rector of St. Peter’s Church in Oxford, along with others have said that while the “guns in churches” law also seems antithetical to Christian values of peacemaking and reconciliation, it came on the heels of the “religious freedom” measure and, consequently has received less immediate attention.“I don’t want to be a pistol-packing priest and I don’t think any of my colleagues in the state want that either,” said Whitaker.Even though she recalled having “a gun pulled on me in a parish here in Mississippi many years ago. It was very frightening and I was grateful that I was not harmed. We were able to meet the need of this individual without incident – that’s the good thing.”The law, which Gov. Bryant had said was a response to the June 17, 2015, shootings of nine parishioners during a Bible study at a Charleston, South Carolina, church. The victims were African American; the shooter, who was white, reportedly said he wanted to start a race war.After some initial discussions, St. Peter’s vestry decided “there was not the necessity here to train anybody or have anybody bring a gun to church,” Whitaker said. And while they have talked about posting ‘no guns allowed’ signage, the church has yet to do so.The Very Rev. Edward O’Connor, dean of St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Jackson, said he and the vestry also discussed posting signs banning weapons but “how does that prevent people from carrying in guns?”Guns are part of the fabric of the state, located “in the buckle of the Bible Belt. The image that sparked the most outrage was that when the governor signed the bill, he did it with a .38-special (handgun) on top of the Bible. It was just disrespectful.”Suzanne Pepper, who is chair of the diocesan Committee with LGBT Persons, called “the fact that anyone can go into a church with a gun, it’s just shameful and it’s dangerous. Guns are a deeply rooted Southern tradition but you still should not endorse someone carrying a gun in church.”Divisiveness: A new kind of ‘Jim Crow’The two laws, together seemingly condoning violence and targeting the LGBT community, made the June 12 mass shooting in an Orlando gay nightclub seem crushingly personal, she said.In particular, HB 1523 has “turned the hopefulness and the joy of the Supreme Court ruling into a demoralization, really,” she told ENS. “How can our state still be so prejudiced? It’s like our community needs love and compassion and understanding and healing.”O’Connor agreed. He asked for prayers for the state, “prayers that we can come to the table with open hearts and open minds and know that we are not alone. We are changed by the narrative of each other’s lives; we need to hear them and learn from one another.”But the laws have also fueled a divisiveness and lack of respectful public discourse, he said.“Many of our Protestant sisters and brothers whose reading of Scripture is different than ours … and whose understanding of grace and mercy and what love requires is sadly very different than ours, (this) is where the lines have been drawn,” he said. “There’s an ‘us against them’ feeling. We’re scratching our heads. It feels a lot like the Jim Crow South,” O’Connor said, referring to former laws segregating races.The reality also is that Mississippi Episcopalians are a very diverse group. “There are people in St. Andrew’s Cathedral and other churches who are adamantly opposed to the law and there are others who are absolutely for it. I have wonderful fine people who leave church on Sunday and go eat lunch with dear friends of 40 years who practice another kind of Christianity – there’s always been that tension.”While acknowledging “there is some grace that has been spent trying to keep people at the table and teach that Episcopal-Anglican model of via media, that we can profoundly disagree but still be called to break bread together at the table.”He added that, “what we most want is civil, kind, respectful discourse, and we’re not finding it.”In the meantime, he is working with grass-roots organizations and community organizers, attempting to forge a way forward and “gathering people together as Christians and Jews and whoever to talk about what is right and just with regard to all people in this state.”Pepper agreed. A native Mississippian who moved away but recently returned, she said she had hoped “to be part of a changed Mississippi, or that I could be part of the change.”But she compares “what I see happening in the LGBT movement to what was happening in the Civil Rights Movement that I saw as a young child. It reminds me of that, all that hate.“Now, with the law, people can look at you and say, ‘If you’re straight come on in; if you’re not, then go away.’ It’s like what happened at the separate water fountains that had signs saying white people and colored people. That’s just not what ought to be happening in the year 2016.”Hrostowski is a social work professor and vicar of St. Elizabeth’s Church in Collins, where the congregation dismisses the “guns in churches” law as also antithetical to Christianity.She says she and Garner will continue to work for LGBT rights in Mississippi.“I certainly hope to gain the repeal of this law,” she said. “I am with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry about being on fire for Jesus and the Jesus Movement and that is all part of this. One thing that makes me very angry is that people who espouse that kind of Christianity [one that discriminates] always talk as if their view of Christianity is the only view of Christianity. The world needs the Episcopal Church right now.”– The Rev. Pat McCaughan is a correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

Top StoriesBREAKING : Supreme Court Directs Medical Examination Of Arrested YSRCP MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju At Army Hospital, Secunderabad LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK17 May 2021 1:33 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court on Monday directed that YSR Congress MP K Raghu Rama Krishna Raju, who has been arrested by Andhra Pradesh Police in a sedition case over his critical remarks, be taken to Army Hospital, Secunderabad for medical examination with respect to allegations of custodial torture.A division bench comprising Justices Vineet Saran and BR Gavai passed the order in a special leave petition filed by Raju against the order of the Andhra Pradesh High Court which refused to entertain his bail application. The High Court had declined interference saying that Raju should first move the sessions court for bail.He was arrested on Friday (May 14) on the charges of sedition and was taken to the Crime Investigation Department (CID) office in Guntur district.The Supreme Court passed the order for medical examination taking note of the fact that the Magistrate has noted injuries in his body and that he has underwent a heart surgery last year.The directions are :Raju must be taken to Army Hospital, Secunderabad(Telangana) forthwith.The medical examination must be done in the presence of a judicial officer nominated by the Chief Justice of the Telangana High Court.The medical examination must be carried out by a medical board of three doctors constituted by the Army Hospital. The proceedings of medical examination must be videographed and be submitted before the Telangana High Court in a sealed cover for being transmitted to the SC.He shall be kept in hospital admission till further orders of the Court and the period of admission will be treated as judicial custody.The hospitalization expenses must be borne by him.The Supreme Court will consider the matter next on Friday. Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Raju, told the Supreme Court bench that his client was targeted for being a critic of the YSR Party. Mr. Rohatgi prayed for an ad-interim bail and a medical examination at a neutral hospital as Raju has been beaten up during custody. Mr. Rohatgi pointed out that last year, Mr.Raju had to procure Y category security cover after approaching the Delhi High Court as he was facing internal threats.Mr. Rohatgi stressed that there was no incitement or call for violence in the speeches given by Mr.Raju, and therefore there was no basis for invoking the offence of sedition under Section 124A IPC.”Today, the governments as a matter of course are adding 124A, so that a man does not get bail because courts feel it is a serious matter”, Mr.Rohatgi said.The senior lawyer said that on May 14, which was incidentally the birthday of Mr.Raju, the police party arrested him from his residence and took him to Guntur, which was 300 kilometers away. He was beaten up in custody. The Magistrate has recorded that there were injury marks in his body, and that he had undergone byepass surgery in last December. Therefore, the Magistrate has ordered medical examination by a government hospital and by a private hospital.Mr. Rohatgi further submitted that the High Court constituted a medical board to examine Mr.Raju, which is led by a gynecologist whose husband is the head of the legal cell of the State Government. He urged that the medical examination be done at the Army Hospital either in Golconda or Secunderabad. Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave, appearing for Andhra Pradesh Government, sought time till Friday to respond to the petition. Mr.Dave suggested that Mr.Raju can be examined at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) at Mangalgiri in Andhra. Since AIIMS is not under the state government, the concerns of Mr.Rohatgi will be addressed, Mr.Dave said.He also suggested that the examination can be done in the presence of a judicial officer. Senior Advocate B Adinarayana Rao, also appearing for Mr.Raju, said that the AIIMS hospital at Mangalgiri started only recently and therefore lacks facilities. Mr.Rao suggested that Mr.Raju be taken to army hospital at Secunderabad.It has been alleged that Raju, who is an outspoken critic of Andhra Pardesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy (his own party head) has been indulging in hate speeches against certain communities and promoting disaffection against the Government, which will cause loss of faith in the Government and also cause disturbances.Refusing to entertain his bail application, the Andhra Pradesh High Court had said : “This Court, as well as the Sessions Court, have got concurrent jurisdiction, this Court is not inclined to entertain this petition directly without moving the same before the trial Judge, where entire material including remand report will be available on his production.”Click here to read/download the orderTagsKanumuri Raghurama Krishnam Raju YSRCP Andhra Pradesh Suprem Court Justice Vineet Saran Justice BR Gavai Next Story

Olivia Covington for www.theindianalwyer.comDirectors of community corrections programs do not have authority to revoke inmates’ good time credit as a disciplinary measure because the Indiana Department of Correction has not yet delegated that authority to community corrections programs, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Friday. The decision reversed rulings in the trial court and Court of Appeals.That decision in Richard D. Shepard v. State of Indiana, 84S01-1704-CR-190, came after the director of the Vigo County Community Corrections program deprived Richard Shepard of 225 days of good time credit. The deprivation was the result of Shepard, who was convicted on a drug charge, violating several community corrections rules, such as leaving the facility to go to work, but not immediately returning when he was informed that he was not needed at work.As a result, the Vigo Superior Court ordered Shepard to be recommitted to the Indiana Department of Correction to serve the balance of his 11-year sentence. Though he was entitled to 190 days of good time credit, the trial court determined that the deprivation of the 225 days zeroed out his good time credit balance. The Indiana Court of Appeals affirmed that decision in January, finding the community corrections director did not lack authority to revoke the good time credit.But the Indiana Supreme Court disagreed, with Justice Steve David writing Friday that Indiana Code section 35-38-2.6-6(d) would allow a community corrections program to deprive credit if given specific authority by the DOC, but no such authority has been given yet in Indiana.“In fact, our legislature has provided for the deprivation of good time credit for offenders directly placed in community corrections, but that statute does not expressly give the community corrections director such authority,” David wrote. “Rather, the statute provides that ‘a person who is placed in a community corrections program under this chapter may be deprived of earned good time credit as provided under rules adopted by the department of correction under IC 4-22-2.’ … However, in the absence of such delegation, only the D.O.C. is empowered to deprive an offender directly placed into a community correction program of earned credit time.”David wrote the court had no reason to believe DOC couldn’t promulgate such a rule, “But for reasons not known to us, the D.O.C. has yet to delegate such authority. Accordingly, the program director here was without authority to deprive Shepard of earned credit time, notwithstanding Shepard’s violations.Thus, the case was remanded for the trial court to recalculate Shepard’s earned credit time to include the 190 days he earned while serving in the work-release program.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
