The Anglican People's Democratic Socialist Diocese of New Westminster goes after the running-dog lackeys:
Diocesan Council at its October meeting declared that while it welcomes a diversity of Anglican views, people and groups working to undermine the Anglican Church of Canada and the diocese are to be opposed.
In a resolution that took time and discussion to craft, the 40-member body that governs the diocese between Diocesan Synods said that it encourages parishes, clergy, and parishioners who wish to do so to support Anglican groups that reflect their views and operate within the Anglican Church of Canada.
But individuals and groups working to set up alternative church structures are not welcome, and it named the recently formed Anglican Network in Canada as one of these.
It asked Bishop Michael Ingham, after consulting with the regional archdeacon, regional dean, and a diocesan legal officer, to take such actions as he may consider necessary with respect to any licensed clergy or any parish of the diocese who should choose to declare themselves to be a member of the . . . Essentials Network.
The Dear Leader wasn't at the meeting but his fingerprints are all over this. Among other things, the resolution:
expresses its opposition to the establishment and operation of the Essentials Network, also known as the Anglican Network in Canada, as well as the Anglican Communion in Canada; and
requests that the Bishop, in consultation with the appropriate Regional Archdeacon and Regional Dean, as well as a Diocesan legal officer, take such actions as he may consider necessary with respect to any licensed Clergy or any Parish of the Diocese who should choose to declare themselves to be a Member of the Anglican Network in Canada or the Essentials Network or the Anglican Communion in Canada, whether by formal resolution or by other public actions or declarations, both to direct their attention to this Resolution as well as to preserve the integrity of our Communion with Canterbury through this Diocese, this Province and the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada.
Can't see any problems with that. Mike's an inclusive guy. Heads up, Binks, they're coming for you.
I don't want to get all culturally imperialistic or anything because I know how much Canadians hate that but here's what has to happen. A bunch of orthodox Christian Canadians(they don't need to be current Anglicans) in Vancouver, 30 or 40 of them at least, need to buy themselves copies of [NAME REMOVED BECAUSE JIM NJEGOVAN MIGHT BE READING THIS AND YOU KNOW HOW EASILY FRIGHTENED HE IS]
and take them to some APDSDNW parish where Mike's preaching whatever his religion is. They need to get there early and get seats in the front of the church.
When Mike steps up to the pulpit, these folks need to take out their copies of [NAME REMOVED BECAUSE JIM NJEGOVAN MIGHT BE READING THIS AND YOU KNOW HOW EASILY FRIGHTENED HE IS], open them up, hold them just below eye-level and read them during Mike's sermon. When Mike finishes, they need to close their copies of [NAME REMOVED BECAUSE JIM NJEGOVAN MIGHT BE READING THIS AND YOU KNOW HOW EASILY FRIGHTENED HE IS] and either all get up an leave immediately or stay there and finish worship, leaving their copies of [NAME REMOVED BECAUSE JIM NJEGOVAN MIGHT BE READING THIS AND YOU KNOW HOW EASILY FRIGHTENED HE IS] in the pews after they go home.
