The Truth Comes Out.
Two diocean conventions caught my eye by making it quite clear that ECUSA revisionists dont give a gradual about the Anglican Communion.
First was the Spong clone Bishop of Newarks 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 didnt 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 didnt 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 DONT 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 dont care for the Anglican Communion. Its past time to kick. them. out.
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.
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?
