Roseberry: "Communique is childish defiance...American power politics"

Dear Friends,

Yet another twist in the turn... At the recent House of Bishops meeting, the bishops of the Episcopal Church debated and discussed the suggestions of the Windsor Report and the details of the Anglican Communiqué.

You will remember that both documents firmly criticized the American (and Canadian) churches for moving ahead with a non-Anglican teaching on human sexuality. In late February, the Anglican Primates issued a statement asking the following concerning the Episcopal Church:

1. For ECUSA to withdraw its representatives from the Anglican Consultative Council, a key interim body of the Anglican Communion. This has, in effect, put the American Church on notice that they are "outside" the family until they decide to abide by the Anglican Communion teaching. This was a good thing.

2. For ECUSA bishops to use their influence to affect a moratorium on further consecrations of bishops who are active homosexuals and to not permit the blessing of same-sex unions in the church.

3. For bishops from around the world to not initiate pastoral oversight and/or ministries beyond their diocesan and provincial borders. There is much more to the statement, but these are significant points. This was all very good.

ECUSA bishops have spit in the eye of the worldwide Anglican communion, yet again. It positively confounds me that the Primates & the ABC are deafeningly silent after this latest act of villiany. Are the Primates REALLY going to allow these wolves in sheep's clothing to savage their own flocks, unimpeded, for another three years? Declare this corpse dead, already, & get on with reunification of the Anglican faithful & resurrection of the Anglican Church in the U.S. This is ridiculous.

Fr. David has lead a good fight and with Bishop Duncan they have taken the heat of the fight. Yet they allow women to celebrate the Holy Eucharist even women who are not priests. This is not right. They are a growing church and they have many powerful programs that lead the unchurched to Christ and a better life, but they are a long way form Anglican in their practice of the Sacred Sacraments.
