Anglican Church Rejects Biblical Teaching on Sexuality
On the most recent Lord’s Day, The Church of England’s General Synod declared that it is not a sin for a man to wear women’s clothes and seek to change his body to look like a woman.
But God’s Word from Deuteronomy 22:5 says, “A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”
The Anglican archbishops have appointed working groups to report back to the Synod in three years on the subject of homosexual marriage.
The archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for a “radical new Christian inclusion in the church” that is based on “a proper 21st-century understanding of being human and being sexual.”

Charlie Gard’s Parents Get New Court Hearing This Week
The U.K. judge responsible for ruling on Charlie Gard’s parental rights case has set the hearing for this Thursday and Friday.
His parents delivered a petition containing over 370,000 names to the hospital, requesting permission to take the child to the United States for treatment.
Charlie’s parents have raised $1,664,000 through a GoFundMe site to seek experimental treatment for their baby.

Senator Marco Rubio Tweets Verses from the Proverbs
Senator Marco Rubio has been tweeting Bible verses almost every day for almost two months now, and left-leading Politico.com has taken him to task for it.
The article accused him of favoring the most Republican book of the Bible. . . the Book of Proverbs. Rubio’s response came in the next tweet: “Where words are many, sin is not wanting; but those who restrain their lips do well.” (Proverbs 10:19)

Jeremiah 6:10 says, “To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear? Behold, their ears are uncircumcised, they cannot listen; behold, the word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn.”
President Trump Shares Doctored Video Showing Him “Punching” CNN
Back in 2007, Donald Trump challenged Vince McMahon of World Wrestling Entertainment to a Battle of the Billionaires in which Trump pretended to body slam McMahon near the wrestling ring and got in a couple of fake punches to the delight of 85,000 pro-wrestling fans.
The video was doctored by a Reddit user who superimposed the CNN logo over McMahon’s face. The president linked to the video on his Twitter account, and the video was re-tweeted 340,000 times.
CNN responded to the humorous video by calling it a “sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters.”
Dan Gainor, Vice President for Business and Culture for the Media Research Center, told The World View that the video revealed the cultural divide in stark contrast.
“It’s one of those things where you can tell how much the media hate him and how much his supporters like him. You look at the people who like Trump and they just think it was funny. . .This is one of those things that really damages the credibility of the traditional press like CNN.”
TV Newser reports a 31% drop in viewers for CNN since the last week in May, and has slipped from 4th place to 10th place in cable ratings. Meanwhile, viewership for Fox News is holding steady, as the conservative news network took the first place ranking for 248 months running.
And that’s The World View in Five Minutes.
