The second is a good point and so the blog is worth watching. Liberalism is not unknown in the Continuum churches (even my own! and from parishioners who have definitely long been part of our church family).

But I will not toss it on one element alone. Note also: "I had expressed discomfort with women’s ordination and outright opposition to the ordination of practicing homosexuals to Holy Orders."

I, for one, would hate to be held to account and forever labeled for every mis-expression I've made.

Let's give the bloggers here at Continuum some time. There's little enough, as Will at Prydain notes, coming from the Continuing Churches. If we see here a leftist element, it's quite worth watching; if it's a misstatement we'll see that soon enough.

Fair enough, but remember, giving folks the benefit of the doubt a generation ago is what got the Episcopal Church to its current state. We're starting to see the early signs of problems in our denomination as well as the generation who led the sucessful fight 40 years ago retire or move to the Church Triumphant.
