What's going to happen at General Convention? Nobody really knows for sure. We may, however, know the liberal game plan. The influential Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh have released a detailed report on their web site as a guide to Windsor Report related resolutions.
(Note: You'll find a backup copy of everything on my website.)
This new document (17 page PDF file) PEP is so proud of is entitled What Should General Convention 2006 Do? Is is a thorough, heavily slanted to the left, evaluation of the recommended resolutions from the Presiding Bishop's special commission's report titled One Baptism, One Hope in Gods Call.
Some of the "key provisions" of their recommendations, as indicated on the second page of their report, are as follows:
2. Regrets any distress felt by others over the actions of the 74th General Convention.
4. Regrets any state of impaired communion declared by other provinces of the Communion with respect to the Episcopal Church.
6. Affirms its provincial autonomy in the selection of its own bishops.
7. Will maintain its position regarding the blessing of same-sex unions, neither going forward nor backward on the matter.
8. Asks the Anglican Communion to take a strong stand against bishops who cross diocesan boundaries without permission. (Should we ask for a moratorium?)
9. Regrets its failure to mend divisions within it, which has resulted in the export of those divisions to the wider Communion.
or, in some other words
2. I'm sorry you feel badly that your dog died when I shot it.
4. I'm sorry you got mad at me when your dog died.
6 & 7. I can still shoot your other dog if I want to.
8. Keep your big brother out of my yard.
9. I'm sorry you are too stupid to just get over it.
"I'm a PEPper, your a PEPper, don't you want to be a PEPper too!"
