Andy at "All Too Common" has written a good post titled Another Cry of the Orthodox where he pleads to the bishops of the Anglican Communion Network to leave ECUSA:
A while back I wrote you an Open Letter explaining, from a laypersons perspective, what are the likely consequences of remaining within the jurisdiction of ECUSA (TEC).I think Andy is pretty much "on target" here and if the bishops of the ACN are at all serious about fleeing heresy they should take this path. There cannot be two separate and distinct "religions" in one church if that church is to be any part of the true Church, and GenCon2006 has made it even clearer that we have two separate religions in ECUSA.
So again, I am pleading with you to make your stand, not in ECUSA (TEC), but in opposition to her: to leave her to perish in her filth and let the ruler of this world have his way with his new bride. ECUSA (TEC) has not only voted in a revisionist woman to the office of PB who openly supports the full inclusion of gays and lesbians, but has also voted against A161 and passed a resolution that is not adequate, essentially giving no answer to the call of regret and repentance the Windsor Report called for. It voted in someone that much of the Communion does not accept as a valid bishop. We must continue to trust in the love and the forgiveness of Jesus Christ. We must continue to call Him Bridegroom and continue to be a part of His bride, not ECUSA the new bride of Satan. A bride cannot have two husbands and therefore I cannot stay in an institution who has divorced one bridegroom and married another. Neither should other orthodox Anglicans.
Many regions of this nation have survived having one or more "overlay" area codes covering the same territory.
It's just back to the good old days of Arian & orthodox or Pope and antiPope.
