He's right. I think it just may be the case that the conservative primates from the rest of the world are more naive than Americans are. We've all seen, and struggled with this sort of behavior from liberals far more often, and in far more venues than they have. It never ends unless the conservatives end it with finality.

The arrogant and errant child, so convinced of the rightness of his cause, simply has to learn through slow painful experience of the world. But it is no help to that process to even pretend that their views and arguments have any plausibility. That pretense is exactly what the "listening" process amounts to. The adults are pretending that they might, after enough "listening", decide that sin really isn't sin, and that the bible doesn't really say what it does say.

I don't know what the eventual future of the Episcopal church and the Anglican communion are, but I do know for certain that our only hope for the future is to hold fast to the gospel, to the faith we received down through the ages. The world is wrong-- but, as I think about what I know of history-- the world has ALWAYS been wrong. The job of the Church is to hold fast to the TRUTH, no matter the changing fashions of this, or any other age.
