Thread 1/4 Am horrified by iresponsible behaviour of @BishopDorking + @nickbaines in allowing themselves to serve propaganda purposes of Kazak govt/ giving credibility to event designed to further propaganda of repressive Regime with grim record on #FoRB.…
2/4 Kazak govt paid for/organised this event (which the bishops publicise). Worth recalling these words from @hrw “Political reforms promised in 2019 have not led to meaningful improvements in the country’s poor human rights record.”…
3/4 #Kazakhstan has *dreadful* Freedom of Religion or Belief (#FoRB) record which Congress whitewashes. Bishops Wells +Baines = complicit in whitewash by uncritical participation in event/ silence on Kazak #FoRB abuse. On FoRB see reports by Forum 18 etc.…

Girolamo Zanchi quotes:

"It is not false that Christ died for all men: for the passion of Christ is offered to all in the Gospel. But he died effectually for the elect alone, because indeed they only are made partakers of the efficacy of the passion of Christ."
