The Truth Comes Out.

Two diocean conventions caught my eye by making it quite clear that ECUSA revisionists don’t give a gradual about the Anglican Communion.

First was the Spong clone Bishop of Newark’s address
to his convention in which he made clear that marching lockstep with the revisionist gay agenda is more important than the Anglican Communion.

He even suggested that unity in the Anglican Communion has become “an idol.” The irony of that statement is rich, considering how many things uberliberals like him have put before God and His Word. The Diocese of Newark has been Idolatry Central for many years.

More subtle, but perhaps more outrageous was the convention of the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia. Not only did they decline to accept the Windsor Report, most of the delegates didn’t even consider it worthy of their time to read the thing. Note this choice paragraph from the linked Roanoke Times article:

But other delegates expressed reluctance to "accept" a document which, by a show of hands, at least half the delegates said they had not read all the way through.

Look. I, of short attention span, can read the Windsor Report in two or at most three sittings. And how many months has it been out? Yet these delegates didn’t take their responsibilities to their convention and to the Anglican Communion seriously enough to even read it. That is outrageous.

The convention took the usual mainline cop-out of calling for “study” of the Windsor Report. WHY DON’T YOU TRY READING IT FOR STARTERS?

To get further color on what is really thinly veiled contempt for the Anglican Communion and the Windsor Report, read comment #10 on the linked TitusOneNine post.

These revisionists, apostates, and tag-alongs have made it clear that they really don’t care for the Anglican Communion. It’s past time to kick. them. out.

The Truth Comes Out II

Is it just me, or is there a sudden outbreak of ECUSA liberal contempt for the Anglican Communion? Here’s the latest bile spewing episode from an assistant bishop no less against arrogant bloodthirsty Primates and their whining orthodox allies. Hmmm.

I might deal with some of the points in this vomitous letter at a later time. But could it be that the liberals are seeing what’s coming from the Primates and are having tantrums like an unrepentant brat about to be punished? Or have they been holding most of their bile in, and now just have to let it all out?

The Primates meeting is still weeks away. If they do what they should do, maybe we will need to duck for cover.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this list.
This is a moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-7 pings/day).

Fascinating and important post for two reasons. First, this man's language strips away the mask of oh so polite Episcobabble and displays for all to see the corruption, the face of the Evil One, beneath. Second, it is clearly a set up for a new, truncated "ecclesial assembly" on account what this man seems to see as an invitable heave ho of the revisionists from the Anglican Communion.

Agreed. As a newbie Anglican he's perhaps less ready to ignore the Episcobabble than those of us who've grown up with it around, and cut to the chase.

I personally find it interesting, and delightful (at times), to read his fresh perspectives as he learns more about Anglicanism.

Coming up for air I see!

The latest word from Africa, as reported on Virtue, does not bode well for orthodoxy being triumphant at the Primates' meeting. It looks like the Africans may be looking for a way to allow ECUSA to do its thing while not allowing it into Africa. Perhaps the money got to them?
